"The Drop"
The setting may be overly familiar, (small time crooks and a blue-collar bar.) The plot a little predictable, (will the guys who knock off the bar get away with it?) But the acting in "The Drop" is so good, that the other stuff almost doesn't matter.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'
