Two half-brothers, Andrew (Eastwood) and Garrett (Thorp) Foster, have a lot in common which they seemed to have inherited from their dead father: the love for exotic rare cars, the thirst for adventure and no fear of high-risk situations, all of which have given them the reputation for being the best car thieves for hire. The film takes place in Marseille where the local gangster Jacomo Morier (Abkarian) wants the two brothers’ heads after they stole a recently auctioned, one-of-a-kind, Bugatti. Fast driving, women, and wild nights seem to bring Marseille to life. Andrew and Garrett together seemed to have the perfect partnership except Andrew has decided to get married.

The film is a cross between The Transporter and Fast and Furious but somehow the storyline is weak. The cars are cool, the stunts are wild and the quick-wit is there but somehow this film can’t seem to pick up the speed to match similar action films and remains a fun action B-movie but nothing more.
