When seasoned commissioner Mattei (Daniel Auteuil, 36 Quai des Orfèvres ) executes a major police operation to take down a notorious gang of bank robbers, expert sniper Vincent Kaminski (Mathieu Kassovitz, Munich) opens fire from the rooftops, killing several officers in the process and enabling an explosive getaway for his desperate accomplices.
With the heist compromised and one of the injured gang members in the hands of unorthodox physician Franck (Olivier Gourmet, L’enfant), Mattei launches a large-scale manhunt, doggedly determined to bring the robbers and their conspiring sniper to justice.
With inventive nods to French master craftsman Jean Pierre Melville, The Lookout is a taut crime thriller in the gripping tradition of 36 Quai des Orfèvres, Inside Man and Heat - a sharply scoped tale of revenge and betrayal primed to strike on target.
