Spoilers Alert and only a single quote in IMDb as of this morning, slim picking:
Opening screenshot -- Which city, might you ask; well, it’s a place where 2400 times a year. 44 times a week. 9 times a day. Every 48 minutes. A bank is robbed here. The bank robbery capital of the world, otherwise known as Los Angeles, California.
AP rounds blasted through the windshield took him out. They took the truck, Gardena police lost them under Hawthorne Municipal. They knew the route. Picked it because it was next to Municipal Airport, knew the restricted air space meant no ghetto bird air support. We're dealing with a different animal here, boys.
Vegan! I'm a vegan. Vegetarians, they eat milk...
Yeah, there also is a lot of shady cats in here, huh?
-Yeah, it's kind of neutral grounds, you know? Rick's in Casablanca type shit.
Sort of like a gang, only we have badges, which means you are done.
You know what that is? It's the bank for banks. Los Angeles branch of the Federal Reserve. It's the only bank that's never been robbed. All the surrounding streets are wired for sound and image. Stand across the street and stare at the building for two minutes, you'll have security on your ass asking you politely to leave. If they see your face again, every Secret Service agent in the country is going to be looking for you. The place is case-proof. There have been 53 break-in attempts. Not one has got past the lobby. That's why we're going to rob it.
Central Security, it's the nerve center for the Fed. This is where the armored cars come in, drop off the money tubs. Money tubs are handed off to the Fed employees. At any one time, there's anywhere between 500 and 800 billion dollars in there, every millimeter of it covered by cameras, sensors, and motion detectors.
But there's a hitch. The serial number of every bill is recorded in the Fed's database. So, if a note goes missing, they're going to know exactly which one it is. They're going to flag it. If that bill comes up again, whoever recirculates that cash, no matter where they are in the world, that person can be tracked.
Every time the Fed receives a deposit from a bank, first thing they do is send that money up to the count rooms. They run the notes through the counting machines. They're accomplishing two things here. First, they're double-checking the accuracy of the bank's deposit. If the bank is off at all, they're going to credit or debit the account accordingly. Two, they're separating newer, fit currency from old unfit bills. But most importantly, they're erasing the serial numbers of the old bills from the Fed system. … In the $100 count room alone, an average of $30 million is designated as unfit every day.
