Shouldn't that be Belgravia?
10 November 2011 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

"She's not a bad little scrubber, is she?" says Terence Morgan – a sort of low-rent Richard Burton – of his sidekick's girlfriend early on in this odd little heist movie from Wolf Rilla. He pretty much sums up the film's attitude towards women in general – they're either a means to an end to be exploited (the little Burmese girl who lets slip that her ambassador daddy has £100,000 stashed in the Embassy safe, and Mai Zetterling as a treacherous wife who sides with Morgan when he goes into a partnership of convenience with her American husband (John Crawford) to carry out the heist), or semi-vapid nobodies (the aforementioned girlfriend, tellingly named Mouse).

Piccadilly Third Stop – I don't know what that title's all about; most of the heist action centres around Belgravia tube station – has all the usual heist ingredients: double-crossing partners, a Mr. Big (Dennis Jones, obviously finding roles harder to come by as he grew older), a safe-cracker (William Hartnell, giving the film's best performance), but they're all so consistently unpleasant that you never for one minute want them to get away with the loot. While you don't expect a moral anchor in these type of movies, you do at least expect one of the characters to be likable enough to root for. The score might be of interest to jazz aficionados (or not – I'm no expert), but it's sometimes intrusively over the top.
