Gordon-Levitt is an interesting and impressive actor, and he's very good in this. Jeff Daniels adds some pleasant comic relief, but other than those two I didn't find this to be all that great. The story is pretty basic and predictable, the rest of the characters are cardboard cutouts, and it's not particularly memorable in any other respect besides the two performances. Though it could have been far worse, it's mostly pretty mediocre.

A well cast heist movie with a little twist, and plenty of tension. The characters are all interesting, and Jeff Daniels in particular shines as Levitt's blind roommate Lewis. The villains for the most part don't have a ton of depth to them, but Matthew Goode is excellent. For a directorial debut, this is a very impressive effort, and it's shocking that Frank hasn't done another film since.

I think that it is a rather overlooked gem. It starts pretty low-key, but then it turns into an intricate but rather free flowing story. The acting is top-notch (special mention to Goode for Gary's naturally menacing bodylanguage). I liked the Checkocian construction of the story and planning with respect to your know weaknesses is a nice story touch. The music is used in a subtle but a highly effective way. Also distant but deep look into the lives of people with disabilities is right on money.

Gordon-Levitt carries this film on his back and mostly does a good job with it. However the supporting cast lacks any significant development, to the point that is unclear what several characters' motivations are for participating in such an extreme action (particularly the girl who hooks up with Gordon-Levitt). It's an engaging film overall and worth watching, though could have been better if the pace had been a bit slower, and secondary characters were developed more thoroughly.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a slightly slow person. Jeff Daniels plays a blind guy. And once again, Isla Fisher plays a slutty Amy Adams.
