Storyline

Haskell (Michael Caine) is assigned a job by his boss, the aristocratic Landon-Higgins (James Fox), to highjack a high security van in broad daylight while it's in the shadow run (out of radio contact with the main security firm). He assembles a team to carry out the heist, but things don't go according to plan and Haskell begins to think his boss might be double crossing him. Add to this, a teenage boarding school pupil has already witnessed some of the meetings of the team and Haskell's in real trouble. Written by Marjorie Johns <marjorie@citizencaine.org>

Goofs

In one scene where Haskell talks on his car phone, he is wearing sunglasses, a lavender shirt, and a purple tie. After a brief cutaway, he is wearing eyeglasses, a dark blue shirt, and an orange tie (and while he had the earpiece up to his ear in the earlier shot, he now seems to be talking to a speaker-phone). Later on (that same day), he has returned to wearing the lavender shirt and purple tie. See more »

Why???
18 March 2004 | by (bristol, england) – See all my reviews

This film is a poor example of how bad British Film-making can be. This was given to me free with my DVD player and it is the biggest waste of money I have never spent in my life. It looks like it was made in the 1980's and imagine my disbelief when I found out it was it was only filmed in 1998. I do despair that people willingly parted with their money to fund this dire waste of film stock. It is an embarrassment to all those people involved in the making, funding, acting and the viewing public.

The only good thing about this film is that the DVD does make a fantastic coaster.

Please, if I only do one right thing in my life, it should be to warn you. Do not watch this film.
