    I believe this is only a few years old, at least thats when I rented it. For some reason only some plot points stuck with me, no actors, no idea what the title was, been bugging me for quite awhile actually.

    Anyways the scenes that most people would remember would probably be when a group of men rob a jewlery store. They use small sledge hammers to break the glass cases and just throw everything in bags. Their getaway driver freaks out and ditches them there so they flee on foot. One ends up getting away, one gets killed by the police. The one that got away tracks down and kills the getaway driver.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Man, I can see it in my head but the name escapes me. I want to say it was "Snatch" or "Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels", but I know it's not.

    Who was in it? "Running Time" with Bruce Campbell also comes to mind, but I can't remember the nature of the robberies for any of these movies.

    Almost sounds like City of Industry but I don't think any of them were killed by the police.

    I think it might be Resovior Dogs? Not sure about the crime part but the rest sounds pretty close.

    Yeah I would say Reservoir Dogs or Johnny Handsome....did it start off with a man with the elephant man's disease? Was Lance Henriksen or Ellen Barkin or Mickey Rourke or...hell...was it THIS??

    There was no getaway driver in Reservoir Dogs.

    Quentin Tarantino aka Mr. Brown, was the getaway driver.

    Really? Hmmm, I'll have to use this as an excuse to watch the movie again. Regardless though, Mr. Brown died--if I remember correctly--because he was shot while getting away, not because somebody hunted him down.

    Plus there are more memorable moments in Resevoir Dogs like the ear removal scene
    .

    Reservoir Dogs never showed the actual robbery.

    It does sound like the film Johnny Handsome, with Mickey Rourke, Ellen Barkin and Lance Henrikson.
