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 »

Good acting, decent thriller, little disappointing
22 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It took quite a while before I could figure out all of the pieces of this scheme and the people involved which I enjoy. I don't like to know everything within the first ten minutes. Caine plays a crook and somehow manages to get a local schoolboy involved in his scheme. Or the schoolboy decides to help Caine with his crime. Caine is a great actor. He is very believable as always. Good dialogue and other actors were very good (Caine's callgirl, School Headmaster and Professor). There aren't any hum-drum moments in this film. The excitement/suspense slowly keeps building up scene after scene. The gigantic church on the outskirts of town becomes the focal point of the heist becoming a success and at the last minute they have to shake it down so their plan won't fail. There's a lot of suspense and tense moments. Caine winds up being too ruthless for my tastes and the ending kind of fell short for me. But it's worth a look.
