But at the core of this film was the bond between these ladies, all driven to rob banks for various reasons. I've never known what it's like to be kept below the line that divides those who should be educated and those who should be left in the dark. As I said, you can tell this was written by amateurs. The story shifts to its main character Lida, Francesca's friend who is a janitor in an upper-class apartment building, soon learning she has to compromise all of her good traits just to break even in life.
I assumed that was the direction the film was going after watching the first scene in which the white bank manager fires Vivica for not following procedure, totally ignoring the fact that she was at gunpoint, along with everyone else in the bank.

Gary Gray's horribly slow direction and an excruciating script by Takashi Bufford and Kate Lanier full of unintentionally funny moments. I highly recommend it as you really grow to care about the characters, which makes the final act all the more harrowing. Beginning with languid, shuffling breakbeats and steadily, stealthily dialing up the pace, the beats march slowly and deliberately forward.
