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 »

Fantastic Film-Never Seen!
3 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I can't really rate this film as I saw it once when I was about 12, but what I do remember is that it was fantastic, dirty, gritty and defined my knowledge of McShane as a great actor.

I remember sewers, drills and bank vaults full of money that the robbers had all weekend to spend robbing I also remember the scene at the end where the hero jumps from a police station window onto a waiting motorbike that speeds away once he is safely seated.

What this post is really about is to see if someone has a copy. I'd happily pay good money, so please drop me a message if you come across one!
