The same movie with American actors would not be as good. There's just something about French criminals. This movie would have you believe that there are good bad guys and bad bad guys. Sure, the good bad guys don't want to kill people, but they have it in them. That ability to flip to the darkside is right there. And it's borne out of loyalty. Which is what made them good bad guys in the first place.
If you've seen any crime movie or read a pulp novel in the last twenty years, chances are you've heard this story before - the 'one last job' that goes horribly wrong - but "The Crew" does exactly what it says on the tin. At a lean and mean 81 minutes (with credits), there's not a scene wasted here, and it all builds to a thrilling escape in the streets of Paris. Believe me when I say you can do worse on Netflix.
