The Hurricane Heist

Hackers attempt to steal $600mil from the US treasury during a national weather emergency in this thriller from xXx director Rob Cohen.

Under the threat of a hurricane, opportunistic criminals infiltrate a US Mint facility to steal $600 million for the ultimate heist. When the hurricane blows up into a lethal Category 5 storm and their plans go awry, they find themselves needing a vault code known only by one Treasury Agent (Maggie Grace), a need that turns murderous. But the Treasury agent has picked up an unlikely ally, a meteorologist (Toby Kebbell) terrified of hurricanes but determined to save his estranged brother kidnapped by the thieves.

Unforgivably more boring than bad, this has characters, dialogue and music of a quality that would come free with a make-your-own-action-movie kit, while the special effects are anything but.

All entirely but watchably absurd, and Kebbell himself carries it off with some style and shows he's got exactly the right leading-man chops.
