Storyline

On the surface it's a seamless caper. A beautiful bank robbery staged by a veteran expert and his two exuberant heirs-apparent. Eddie the cocky leader, and his cohort Ian dream of adventure, riches and fame, while legendary thief and safe cracker Maitland harbors more complicated motives. Nevertheless the trio unites in an ingenious scheme. The plan is meticulous, the results are disastrous. Dressed in Saville row suits and bowler hats, the criminals confidently execute the heist, but an unexpected and unwelcome rival gang compromises the robbery. A throng of Police and SWAT teams arrive. The authorities led by a bungling Inspector Badger, stage a raid that goes horribly wrong. A seige ensues and the would-be robbers become hostages, unwillingly allied with this suspect crew of new colleagues and an enigmatic woman named Jo. The assault continues outside the bank, under the efficient supervision of Professor Corner and her mysterious Cyclops agency, but the situation inside gets even ... Written by TJ

not 'one of the lousiest films of the decade'
2 October 1999 | by (Widnes, England) – See all my reviews

You're Dead is an hilarious crime thriller that uses a Citizen Kane like structure to good effect. Visually it is always interesting with the director obviously having a good grasp of composition and to a lesser extent colour. The acting is appropriately over the top and the general tone of the film politically incorrect. All of these elements gel beautifully to make You're Dead one of the better films of the year and certainly not 'one of the lousiest films of the decade'.
