Adrenaline Rush

Age Rating:

A pair of elusive bank robbers are double-crossed in a heist and must chase after the crew who got away with their cut of the money.

Paying homage to action crime classics like “Bonnie and Clyde” and “The Getaway” with the new-age, twin-gun style of John Woo, two of America’s finest badass criminals deliver a pure adrenaline rush on every level. Noah McCorvey and Sasha Sanders are young, twenty-something bank robbers, and they’ve been the best at what they do ever since dropping out of their small town Californian high school. With a thrill-seeking excitement charging their motivation, no teller or convenient store clerk in the southwest is safe from the dynamic duo’s offbeat bickering, but like an old married couple, a sense of dependency always keeps them going. Noah is the charmingly-charismatic loose cannon, while Sasha’s more sensible and cynical stance always manages to keep them on the FBI’s Most Wanted list and just far enough out of reach from their itchy fingers—until their luck finally seems to run out when Noah is apprehended during a bank robbery by stern and determined United States Marshal Jill Crocker, with Sasha boldly and barely managing to snake away. However, unbeknownst to even Sasha herself, the capture is only the springboard to a much bigger plan when Noah escapes prison during a schemed riot two years later with help from the friendly neighborhood drug lord Duncan Reed supplying a “look-away” payoff to the warden. Reed has enlisted McCorvey and his long-time sassy counterpart Sasha for a bank heist with a crew of three others, only the money-snatching is a diversion so they can acquire the establishment’s real treasure for Reed—a multimillion dollar diamond Noah garnered intel of while in prison, nestled in a safe deposit box that Reed hopes to use as leverage for manufacturing an alliance with a rival drug kingpin. But when a double-cross occurs by Reed’s conniving trio, McCorvey and Sanders are left to make a daring getaway from the police, deciding to set payback into motion by doing what they do best—kicking ass and chasing down the would-be second-rate robbers who got away with the prize and left them to take the fall. Of course, that doesn’t mean they can’t have a little fun along the way. But their quirky desert journey to settling their hot score isn’t gonna be easy, as the chasers quickly become the chased with the sharp, no-nonsense U.S. Marshal Crocker hot on their trail, hoping to put away McCorvey and Sanders once and for all. Rattling shoot-outs, bursting explosions and crackling car chases give tribute to the classic crime caper with a cool new kick.
