One good episode
25 March 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

With this one, I found the heist scheme again. It was so long since the last time. Here, Alexander Monday is blackmailed by a bunch of evil guys lead by a billionaire and then forced to steal an important radioactive material shipment. The heist sequences are amazing to me when he and the billionaire's men pull the job using a concrete mixer truck to enter the firm industrial facilities. I loved the sequence, perfectly in the heist line, with tense moments. The mechanical of the caper is always thrilling to me. The best would be all the episodes were the same. But unfortunately, it is not. Directed by Leo Horn, a TV director who made stuff for the small screen.
