Storyline

A dramatized speculation of what happened in November 1983 when Micky McAvoy and some of his mates planned a heist and were surprised when they discovered they'd stumbled across a large stash of gold. But getting the gold away without getting caught is only the beginning of their troubles. Realizing the riches the gold represents is difficult, and honor among thieves may only be a myth.

Not exactly "Full of Beans"
15 March 2006 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

This show came to my attention in March 2006, 14 Years after production and 23 Years after the robbery.

The plot itself seems to be a "nothing" if you will. there's just no characters to love, hate or follow, its a very simple "nutshell" job of a story. Beans performance is probably one of the worst I've seen from him in recent memory, lucky enough this did not stop him moving on to finer roles. Mistakes in the continuity of the film are quite often; A Character is seen driving an "X" Reg Nissan Sunny in the setting of 1983. The problem here is, in the UK, Nissan was known as Datsun in 1983, not Nissan. Another continuity problem appears in the house scene of McAvoy. His Child is seen wearing an 1990 England National Team Football Shirt. Without the aid of Doc Brown's DeLorean, how could a child wear a 1990 Football strip, in 1983? Like the continuity problems, the film is dogged by lack of plot and obvious endings. If you work at Brinks-Mat or know McAvoy Personally, I would advise you to watch it. If you don't, well, like the rest of us, save the precious 1 and half hours for something else.
