Good movie with great music!
The story is rather simple focused around a tested successful heist setup but, as always, when you introduce a pretty girl into a well oiled machine things start to go sideways.

The movie features a bunch of great actors. It is always difficult to work with a role, where the character is silent and sombe most of the time, but Ansel Elgort did a decent job.

I have never been a big fan of Jamie Foxx, but his role here fits perfectly with my perception of him.

Kevin Spacey is currently under a lot of fire for his (alleged?) behavior of camera, but regardless of that, he is still a good actor - in this movie as well. 

John Hamm is surprisingly well casted for a bully and bad guy. At some point he reminded me of Till Lindemann from Rammstein. 

The car chases are pretty good. The music, as it is part of the movie, is really good.

The ending is a bit of a mess, and for me that reduced the rating from 9 to 8.

It is absolutely worth watching if you like heist movies, car chases and/or solid music.
