Description

Career criminal Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro) and his partners – Chris Shiherlis (Val Kilmer), Michael Cheritto (Tom Sizemore) and Trejo (Danny Trejo) – hire Waingro (Kevin Gage) to help rob $1.6 million in bearer bonds from an armored car. During the heist, Waingro impulsively kills a guard, forcing the crew to kill the other guards to leave no witnesses. Infuriated, McCauley plots to kill Waingro, but he escapes. McCauley's fence, Nate (Jon Voight), suggests they sell the bonds to their original owner, money launderer Roger Van Zant (William Fichtner). Van Zant agrees, but instructs his men to ambush McCauley at the meeting. McCauley shoots his way out of the ambush and vows revenge against Van Zant. Lieutenant Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino) of the LAPD, working alongside Sergeant Drucker (Mykelti Williamson) and Detectives Sammy Casals (Wes Studi), Mike Bosko (Ted Levine), and Danny Schwartz (Jerry Trimble), is leading an investigation on the heist and learns that McCauley's next target is a precious metals depository. The unit stakes out the depository but inadvertently alerts McCauley to their presence. McCauley postpones the robbery, and Hanna lets the crew leave. Despite discovering they are under police surveillance, McCauley and his crew agree to perform a brazen bank robbery worth $12 million to secure their financial futures. Waingro approaches Van Zant in search of work and revenge against McCauley. McCauley starts a relationship with Eady (Amy Brenneman), a designer he meets in a cafe. Hanna moves into a hotel after learning his wife Justine (Diane Venora) is having an affair. Hanna intercepts McCauley on the freeway and invites him to coffee. Face-to-face, the aging professionals bond over their personal problems; Hanna's concern for his depressed stepdaughter Lauren (Natalie Portman) and his string of failed marriages due to work, and McCauley's solitary life of a career criminal that forbids attachment and requires mobility, making his romantic relationships tenuous. Both men reaffirm their commitment to their work, and to using lethal force if necessary. After the meeting, Hanna discovers that McCauley's crew have evaded their surveillance. When Trejo becomes compromised, McCauley recruits Donald Breedan (Dennis Haysbert), an ex-convict working a dead-end job at a diner. Hanna's unit receives a confidential tip about the bank heist, and try to apprehend McCauley's crew as they exit the bank. In the ensuing gunfight, Breedan and several police officers, including Bosko, are killed, while Hanna shoots Cheritto dead moments after McCauley and an injured Shiherlis make a narrow escape. McCauley leaves Shiherlis with a doctor to treat his wounds and tracks down Trejo, who he finds fatally wounded, his wife murdered. Trejo reveals that Waingro was the informant, working for Van Zant. McCauley finishes off Trejo at his own request then confronts and kills Van Zant at his home. He approaches Eady, who has accepted his criminal activities, with a plan to flee to New Zealand. Hanna orders the police to surveil Waingro in a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport and leaks the information, suspecting that McCauley will try to kill Waingro when he finds out. Chris Shiherlis' estranged wife Charlene (Ashley Judd) is detained in a police safe house, where Drucker threatens to charge her as an accomplice and send her son into foster care if she does not betray her husband to the police. Charlene agrees, but when Chris shows up in disguise, she surreptitiously warns him, allowing him to slip through the dragnet. Hanna finds Lauren unconscious in his hotel room from a suicide attempt and rushes her to the hospital. McCauley and Eady drive to the airport when he receives word of Waingro's location. Inititally dismissive, he quickly changes heart, risking his assured freedom to exact revenge. He infiltrates the hotel, creates a distraction by pulling a fire alarm, and kills Waingro. Moments away from escape, he is ...
