This is our chance, Kostya.

You gotta take a shot like this.

Who knows?

Could be your only one.

Either you take it

or you spend the rest of your

days wishing you're dead.

How do I know

you won't just

take the cash and run?

You'll know

cause you'll have it.

I've been planning

this job for six months.

I'll be one step

ahead of you.

So are you in or not?

Yeah, I'll do it.

I'll do it.

What's next?

Believe me,

it's a piece of cake.

The plan is flawless.

Okay, let's pretend

here's the bank.

It's located

in a quiet neighborhood.

This is the front door.

What you're gonna do

is park right here,

leave the car door open

to fool the cops.

They'll believe you left the car

there to use in the escape.

Those idiots

will fall for anything.

Give me that.

The point is to get

your hands on the cash

in the vault

right here.

The most important thing

is to get the keys.

See what I mean?


Just keep a sharp eye on it.

Who knows?

Some off-duty cop

might show up to pay

his mortgage or something.

It's all we need.

What is this?

No one wants to work today?

Uh, Olga,

more bills.

Well, what can we do?

I'm sorry, sir, but could you

date this for me, please?


Only for you then.

What the hell did you do,

you psycho?

Did you hear me?

What the hell is wrong with you?

Do you realize you just

killed two cops?

Don't you get it?

You just screwed the whole thing up.

Grom, come on,

we gotta get out of here.

The keys ...

who has the keys?

Don't try to act tough.

Everybody down.

Move it.

Where are the keys?

I'm not gonna ask you again.

Where are the fucking keys?

-Get down!

-Do you hear me?

Tell me where the keys are or

I'll put a bullet in your skull.

Put the gun down now.

-Get down, you hear me?

-Do you understand?

I want the fucking keys and I'll

start shooting people one by one

until you give them to me!

Nobody moves

until we say you move.

Keep your fucking mouths shut

and nobody gets hurt!

Keep your faces

down on the ground!

They hit the alarm!

Bring some hostages.

-No, please, I don't want to go.

-Give me your hands.

Get up.

That way. Move.

Get down! Police!

Hold it right there.

Get down on the floor.

-Shut up.

-Let me go.

Please let me go.

When you leave the bank

you'll be in front

of an old theater.

Try not to attract


Just get to the junkyard.

It's not far,

about 100 yards.

Hurry. In there.


If you just

stick to the plan

things will go

as easy as pie.

-In there?

-Move it.

-Let go of me, jerk.

-Please don't make me go down there.

Go go!

Go on!

Let's go, let's go,

let's go.

Sir, nothing yet.

We've set up roadblocks.

We've got men going

door to door.

We've got a two-mile radius

from the bank.

It's like they

disappeared, sir.

Keep looking.

They're out there somewhere.

Yes, of course, sir.

We've got IDs on them.

What are you doing?


What are you doing?


Listen, why did Kostya

take the cop's machine gun?

Keep an eye on him.

Uh-huh, you got it.

You enter the tunnels

through the hatch.

It's a hell of a mess

down there,

but you'll have a map.

Make sure you follow it.

You go first.

The stairs are rusty.

They might collapse.

You should be so lucky.

Shut up and move.

Kirk, let's go.

I can't do this ...

these stairs.

Let me go.

You have to let me go.

I won't tell anyone.

Please let me go.

Stop crying. You have to

calm down, Katya, please.

Why do I have to

calm down?

Why should I?

What difference does it make?

Because these guys

are killers.

Don't you understand? We could

both die down here because of you.
