The Underneath

“I can’t believe that you’d wear our father’s suit to our mother’s wedding.”

Two brothers — one a cop, one a supposedly reformed degenerate gambler — immediately irritate each other when reunited in this rock-solid neo-noir.

Trust is not something they share, and probably for good reason.

The gambler is our main man, and the moment he becomes an armored car driver working for his new father-in-law, you can probably guess things won’t end well.

A loose remake of the Burt Lancaster flick Criss Cross, it benefits from a strong director in Steven Soderbergh, and a twisty plot.

Worth a second look.
