Every few years, a solid film comes along about a group of down on their luck innocents who get caught up in crime and mayhem when they discover, and decide to keep, dirty money. Some of the best films of this genre are "Simple Plan" and Oscar winner "No Country for Old Men," and while "Danger One" isn't quite on that level, it's still a worthy addition to the genre. What distinguishes it from its predecessors is that it has a manic touch of dark humor, likening it almost to a Shane Black or Guy Ritchie style actioner. Also upping its street cred are dynamite performances from vets like Scott (great to see him in something good) and O'Hare, as well as newbies like the subtly compelling Jurdi and the aggressive but appealing Celaya. It takes a bit for the film to move along, and a sub plot involving ICE agents with their own agenda isn't particularly gripping, but overall "Danger One" proves to be both a good time at the movies and a thinking man's action piece. Well done.
