Janet Leigh, Edward G. Robinson, and Adolpho Celi, known to American audiences as a Bond villain, star in this fascinating heist film. Robinson is the mastermind after he's been fired and he goes to a long-standing friend for the right key-men needed for the job: an expert safe-cracker, a demolitions man for the right TNT needed, etc. Despite its slow, meticulous pace, it manages to keep the viewers interest. But what really blows the viewers' mind, isn't so much what inevitably becomes to each of the gang, but the very last minute's twist ending. It's a shocker and leaves you all up in knots. You're sitting there, wondering if they were followed or was this some spontaneous action. If you love heist films, then find this one first. Then all others will suffer in comparison.
