I guess my main gripe is that the whole time, I'm thinking "maybe when we finish arguing and screaming and bleeding and get out of the warehouse and get to the meat of the movie, it'll get better." After an hour or so, it dawned on me.....arguing and screaming and bleeding in the warehouse IS the friggin movie. There IS no meat. It might have made an interesting 60-minute episode of some TV series, but that's not enough material to carry a full length film.

I could see a film professor grading this: "Um, you've got a couple of interesting ideas here....scenes shown out of order, that's kind of cool, we don't see the actual robbery, that's interesting. But form isn't enough--it would help to have some kind of plot, you know. D+."
