This week’s number 8 entry debuted at No.2, but has taken a downfall ever since. It talks about a cold-blooded computer hacker (Doug Hutchison) who breaches the government's top security system and smuggles $40 million in gold bullion out of a federal depository.
His accomplice stashes the gold in a secret location and then dies from of a brutally incompetent federal agent (David Morse), but not before passing a cryptic message to his cellmate, petty crook Alvin Sanders (Jamie Foxx).
This makes the unsuspecting Sanders the perfect lure for a complex sting, designed to snare both the thief and the loot. But with his bumbling brother (Mike Epps) in the picture, the feds can’t keep him out of trouble long enough to get their man and his girlfriend (Kimberly Elise)<?B> and young son get caught in the crossfire.
This Comedy is rated R for language, violence and a scene of sexuality.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the movie was produced by Sean Ryerson. The film’s screenplay was written by Andrew Scheinman, Adam Scheinman and Tony Gilroy. Warner Bros. Released it.
The movie's total running time lasts 1 hour and 59 minutes.
In its 3rd run at the Box Office, the movie generated $2,600,000, earning it a total of $13,200,000.
