The first 90% is great, the final 10% is crap.
15 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In the 1950s and 60s, a bunch of great heist films came to theaters. Films like "Rififi", "Grand Slam", "Oceans 11", "The Asphalt Jungle" and "Bob le Flambeur" all quickly come to mind. Well, it isn't surprising then that television would also tackle the subject--and "Four Into Zero" is such a program.

When the show begins, you see the four gang members practicing for the upcoming heist. Then the show backs up a bit--showing the motivations of the men for committing this robbery. What is the robbery? Some plates for a South American country are on a train going from Chicago to Los Angeles and the men plan on stealing them and printing their own currency--and then returning them before the train arrives at the station. What follows is the heist--and like most films about heists, naturally some things don't go off like planned. Will they get away with this or will their grand plans all fizzle?

For the first 90% of the show, I was hooked. The writing, acting and direction were taut and exciting. And then, at the end, the entire show went into the toilet with an ending that simply defied common sense and will most likely have most viewers mad...mad that the thing ended THIS badly!
