Story


After failing to get into the police academy, Chris Potamitis (Liam Hemsworth), settles for a security guard job with the EMPIRE STATE Armored Truck Company. Chris makes the mistake of mentioning the company's lax security to his best friend, Eddie (Michael Angarano), and is soon unwittingly drawn into an elaborate scheme to rob the abundant amounts of cash being stored there - resulting in the largest cash heist in U.S. History. As the stakes continue to rise, Chris and Eddie must outwit James Ransone (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), the veteran NYPD Detective that is hot on their trail, as well as the local crime bosses that want to know who pulled a job on their turf, or suffer the consequences.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a surprising real life cash heist gets a rather routine treatment in Dito Montiel's Empire State..”
by Matt Hough [Home Theater Forum]
“..Sadly, Montiel's worked through this type of tough guy material before, yet there's still no sign of creative growth..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]
“..Empire State is mostly stagnant and uninteresting..”
by William Harrison [DVD Talk]
