This left-turn second feature from F. Gary Gray – after the success of his debut, the comedy-thriller Friday – is a crackling, gender-swapped bank robbery neo-noir with an all-star cast. Vivica A. Fox plays a fed-up former bank teller who uses her inside knowledge to form a highly successful heist crew made up of her best friends, and things go great – until they don’t.
