Filmed in Adelaide, South Australia, Bruce Beresford's adaptation of Devon Minchin's novel is a raw fast-paced independent feature with an all star Australian cast including Bryan Brown, Charles 'Bud' Tingwell, 'Terry Donovan' and Tony Bonner. Story has a group of crooks plan a heist to steal twenty million dollars from a Security Firm counting house only to have the scam overtaken by a crime boss due to a corrupt police detective and the plot foiled by a wily ex-cop.

One of the most under-rated Oz films of all time!, Brilliantly directed by Beresford it was superbly cast and scripted.
Ray Marshall appeared in every scene with a cigarette, and lucky Grills appeared in his normal quota of beer drinking scenes. Not to mention the use of profanity which is normally associated in the workplace which gave the natural realism. Also the plot which assumed that OZ coppers are completely bent really added to the authenticity.
And not to mention half the cast of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo being involved in a climatic shootout, BRILLIANT!!!!
