For the Four Horseman's final trick, they steal a safe and pack all of the money into Thaddeus Bradley's car in a way that would prevent you from being able to get into the car, let alone drive it. At that precise moment in time the police turn up and arrest him for the theft of the money.

Wouldn't Thaddeus Bradley having all of the money stuffed into his car demonstrate his innocence? Surely the way these events played out would prevent him from actually being sentenced and thus Dylan's overall goal would fail?

@coleopterist Meh, and I was so happy those things were not tagged with that awfully non-constructive plot-inconsistency. –  Napoleon Wilson Oct 29 '13 at 6:27
    
maybe I'm looking too closely but from what I see this movie just sucked! –  hmmmm Oct 29 '13 at 23:02

I most certainly agree with you; this seems to be not much more than just a glaring plot-oversight. In reality (I surmise), a brilliant robbery will have its share of vanity and stupidity, but I can't think of any reason why a mastermind thief would:

  • make his "getaway" car literally unusable
  • have all his money be un-contained in a public place (the floor of the parking garage)

So one might ask "why would somebody fill his car up to the brim in cash, then systematically go and open each door and the trunk then step back and savor the view?"

It wouldn't outright imply his innocence, but it would definitely strongly suggest he is being framed.
