This movie was entertaining thats for sure. IF you want to be critical about it, there's plenty of holes in this work.

OK, so the setup had the potential to being one of the top 10 action movies of all time, but left short in delivering in some aspects more than others. Story-line wasn't that clear and questionable in some times. The main focus wasn't the actual robbery it was surviving with the money which killed the thrill early in the movie considering they're Special Ops. Tom (Ben affleck) getting greedy out of nowhere and caused consequences, where he was the leader and the guy for this operation. Tossing money from the helicopter just to survive the altitude.. i mean its reasonable if you gonna narrow your common sense and causing the helicopter to breakdown anyway!


Overall, its a fun ride.. from the breath-taking views and action-packed scenes. 7.7/10

level 1

Guess kind of late. I think it's pretty good but really cause of how ridiculous and childish the dudes were. The whole wouldn't have happened I they didn't take like 27 bags worth of that money. It honestly was funny and made the film good even though it was supposed to be a serious action film. Actors were still great but god damn how dumb these guys were.

level 1

Hands down the best part of the movie is when they find Lorea and Pedro Pascal's character runs into the bedroom yelling "What are we shooting at in here????" I died.

level 2

I know, right!!!??? Such great writing among one giant blunder (the fact that not one mind in that team of special operations chess masters thought of backing back down the Andes to a flat ledge, dumping half the money and making the crest in two runs instead of trying to do it when they were at red line with a thousand feet to go. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I was screaming at the TV. All five times I watched it.)

Annoyed me that the score seemed to be non-stop throughout the whole film

level 1

do the coordinates at 1.55.00 mean anything

level 2

Where they threw the money away to be covered by the snow.

level 1

It’s really fucking bothering me that no one has brought up the fact that there were 5 mules (that we saw), then 1 fell down the cliff, then when they shoo them away there’s 5 again.

someone correct me if I’m wrong, but oversights like that piss me off so much

The camera work and Action execution is insane!

The story is not that good but for me its entertaining! if you guys love to watch action film and love to be entertain its for you!

level 1

I only say the first 15 minutes but I liked it.

level 2

Why not more

level 3

I was just joking I haven't seen any of it. I will. Netflix movies are always meh though.

Try googling the coordinates 19 ° 22 ' 32.0 '' S 69 ° 15 ' 38.2 '' W or search it on Google Maps. It leads to this.

level 2

The GPS coordinate is a location that is in the mountains, but the location is approx. 60 miles from the ocean. Better attention to detail would have made it so much cooler.

level 3

I only did the searching. Guessed the first number on the W coordinate then I found that marker. I didn't put it there.

level 1

I loved it when they made mistakes for greed in the raid, felt like natural human greed coming from them. But when they tried to lift away with 250 mil when they came for 75 mil I started to get annoyed. It just seemed like they made too obvious of a mistake to overload the helicopter. Suprise the obvious plot twist of the crash happens. Making the death of redfly feel off because it was caused from an obvious mistake coming from extreme professionals. I think this movie was set up to be an amazing one but instead I probably wont watch it again.

Theres a difference between being greedy, and desperate

level 2

I think that was the point of the movie they chose greed and they lost a brother. At then end they show they realise this by all giving up there money, showing that they didnt think it was worth it in the end.

level 3

They chose greed when they decided to kill the second and third waves of body guards at the house. I think their "greed" when they tried to fly away with all the money felt more like a break of mathematical logic. Something out of place coming from these smart spec ops guys.

I saw it as the typical group project dynamic. The pilot (the expert) says that it will most probably not work, and gave all the technical reasons. But the "leader" dismisses it. Blinded by greed, because it is not impossible, only very unlikely.

Indeed, they almost made it. It seems that the problem came from the fact that the helicopter was in not optimal conditions. Or you can also blame it on the weather.

I saw it as the most realistic part of the movie :).

level 4

While not trying to sound repetitive. That's what I mean though they knew it was a mistake a lot of then did. However the one in charge Tom or well the one they all seemed to listen to the most atleast made the call. Talked about how he missed the thrill and then add in the money it was his character flaw. Which in the end leads to his demise. Smart guys for sure but then point is everyone is human and you make mistakes or get to greedy sometimes.

level 1

Had very low expectations after reading some opinions on it but ended up really enjoying it. What I liked most about it were the locations and the overall development of the story because it felt pleasantly unfamiliar.

level 2

I agree - the scene in the end with the ocean AND mountains in view was very astheticalky beautiful and pleasure and felt unique as you put it it felt unfamiliar which was as you put it pleasant

What I liked a lot about the story were the locations and development as you said.

I also read reviews and had low expectations which FOR SURE made it better for me. As you said... lol ur cute

level 3

Haha thanks; keep it up, dude.
