Question: What was the purpose of Channing Tatum preventing the gate from opening?
Answer: Jamming the gate by blocking the sensor delayed Joe Bang's brothers long enough for Mellie to come and collect some bags full of cash. Jimmy specifically did not trust them to know his entire plan. This part of the ruse allowed them to steal a separate stash of money so they could pretend to return the stolen money, whilst secretly keeping some to distribute later.
Question: At the end, how does Joe know where to dig?
Chosen answer: Earlier in the film, it's mentioned that he had some money buried in a special spot in his yard, but that it had been dug up. When he saw the shovel at the end (which indicates that something was buried that he should did up), he realised that the new money stash had been buried in the same spot as his old stash. They basically gave him the clue, and he put two-and-two together on his own.
Question: When Channing Tatum fixes the chain on the gate in the time replay, why does he yank the West Virginia insignia off the gate? Where is it used? Does the film explain why this is important?
Chosen answer: There was nothing wrong with the gate, he set the sign up to cover the laser sensor so the gate wouldn't open, this held them up and gave Logan time he needed to load the other bags. He yanked the chain to make it look like the chain was caught and causing the problem.
Question: When Logan gets fired, is it part of the plan or was it really liability issues due to his bad leg?
Chosen answer: It really was a liability issue, even though as he said it didn't prevent him doing his job. The liability part was that he didn't mention it when he applied for the job.
Question: What was the deal with the woman in the bank? Why did she get a bag of money at the end of the movie?
Chosen answer: Thanks to her, the group was able to measure the vault in which all the money from the race would be stored, as to know distances and the amount of garbage bags to bring and to ensure the shortest time possible. So they gave her the money for aiding them without her knowing.
Question: Why, in the credits and trailers, does it say "and introducing Daniel Craig as Joe Bang"? Isn't introducing used for new actors, not really famous ones?
Chosen answer: Established actors are not normally listed in the cast credits this way. This appears to have been done as an inside joke.
