The Killing is not a really good title
5 second plot: This movie isn't really about a killing, but about a race track heist. There are some killings, but that's not really the central theme. There is one smart bloke organizing the heist. He finds a bunch of other guys who are desperate to get their hands on the big bucks. It all looks perfect, but they still need a good dose of luck to pull it off.
5 second review: It's a shame that the main character, Johnny, doesn't have a lot of charisma. A stronger lead would have made a more interesting picture. I don't know if I liked the extreme moral lesson of the story. It all goes so sour that it's more a comedy instead of a film-noir.
