When Jimmy is made redundant from his tunnelling job and needs money quickly to hire a lawyer to help him with a custody dispute over his young daughter Sadie, he comes up with a scheme to rob the cash-rich vault of the nearby Nascar racing track where he has been working. To access the safe they need the skills of Joe Bang (played by Daniel Craig), who is currently incarcerated in the local prison, who brings into the gang his redneck brothers, who are no criminal masterminds.
Right from the opening sequence all the way through, this is an amazing visual and aural feast. The cinematography is beautful – every scene and every shot is a sight to behold. The car chases through the (Namibian) desert are insanely spectacular. And the soundstage is all-enveloping. All the things I like in an action movie.
