Sebastian lives a boring life as a bank teller. He produces videos about safe cracking and patiently waits for a LIKE. Imagine how he reacts when one of his videos receives a comment that invites him to join an underground safe cracking contest. 

Meanwhile, there's a zombie outbreak in the USA.  

Sebastian goes to the contest and wins. There, amidst the victory scream from the spectators, he sees a very beautiful girl smiling at him before vanishes. 

He meets the girls the next day at his usual coffee shop. The girl, Gwendoline introduces herself and shares with him about her special talent - a skilled jewel thief that is wanted almost all over the world.

After much coaxing, Gwen manages to recruit Sebastian into a heist crew consist of Korina (an expert hacker), Rolph (a getaway driver) and Brad (a gunman and muscle of the crew). Their main objective us to break into three banks that houses three safes created by locksmith Hans Wagner. These safes are believed to be the most secured safes in the world and holds an insurmountable treasure inside each and everyone of the safe. The safes are due to be decommissioned in less than a week so the crew needs to crack them before that. 

As inexperienced in a heist job as he is, Sebastian is ecstatic when his first heist stint in Paris is successful. The crew steals only a fraction of what's inside the safe as Gwen justifies the action is to face the challenge and their future reputation will worth more than the monetary gain.

Their first success attracts the attention of Delacroix, an Interpol that has been obsessed with capturing the crew after Brad shot him during a theft. He predicts that the crew will strike at the second safe in Prague and anticipates their every move. A miscalculation in the heist forces the crew to improvise and at the end, leaves Sebastian behind during the getaway - despite Gwen's disapproval. 

What happened to the crew? Will they success in their mission to open all the safes?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.7/ 5.0 A nerd meets a beautiful criminal, joins a heist crew, loves the action and gradually, falls for the girl. 

Very straight forward there but as a prequel to the Army of the Dead, makes quite a solid background for it. 

The actions are great!

Cast: 4.7/ 5.0 Everyone delivers and I hate Brad!

Will I Watch It Again: I watched it twice already, followed by Army of the Dead.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
