In the not too distant future, the United States government has a secret plan to eradicate all crime and terrorism by broadcasting a signal that makes it impossible for individuals to commit unlawful acts. To distract the nation, the government created a new currency system, all held on digital charging cards. With only one week remaining until broadcast, Graham Brick, a career criminal who never quite hit the big score, intends to steal one of the charging stations, and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life.

You could argue that the comic could have been expanded into a short limited series, but a feature-length film should hopefully do the comic justice.
