Best part of story, including ending: Based on a real story, the biggest heist in the history of USA, which occurred in the heart of USA, New York. Well written and well directed film worth of watching.

Best scene in story: At the time of robbery was my favorite scene. Chris's best friend drilled the roof of the store and came down. Really horrifying scene.

Opinion about the main character: Chris showed so much care to his friend to save him. He also worried about his family. He wanted to do something good by getting into the police academy. But so sad, his fate turned him to be a most wanted.
