Goofs

When the team finally break through from the sewer into the bank's vault, the gas cylinders they use have 'Calor' stamped on them-unlikely, as this company supplies the UK and Eire only. The French equivalent would be 'Elf' or 'Camping Gaz'. See more »

Great caper film!
9 December 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film is just perfect. Why it is not available on video is a mystery. It is a great caper film.

I do not know much about the Algerian/French nonsense but the implementation of the bank robbery is done very well.

The politics mean nothing. The crime is the thing.

Planning the operation, getting the help, and then getting away are all you really need for a good caper film.

Yeah, they get caught later but spending the cash is where they catch everyone.

Damn good film.

We need this available once again!
