After marine archaeologist Walter has the gold coins he salvaged from a shipwreck seized by the Spanish government, he is hell bent on getting it back. Enter Thom, a highly sought after genius engineer, who Walter petitions to help him and his team break into the Bank of Spain’s vault to retrieve the gold. Presented with an enigma of a lifetime in the world’s most secure vault and the impossible task of getting it done in only 105 minutes, can Thom solve the mystery in time?
This movie was a true thrill and kept me wondering what would happen next. It had a vibe reminiscent of Now You See Me or The Prestige with its air of thriller mystery. I enjoyed the dynamic between the characters and was glad they used Spain as the beautiful back drop to this story. The idea of a mysteriously impenetrable vault had me searching the internet to see if it was real and it truly does exist (Although I don’t believe it is exactly as depicted). As a whole this movie was satisfying to watch and the ending left the possibility of more movies to come. If a good treasure hunt sprinkled with mystery, suspense and a touch of romance is your thing, give this one a try!
