Nevertheless the trio unites in an ingenious scheme. The plan is meticulous, the results are disastrous.

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.

great british movie
19 June 2002 | by (Trier, Germany) – See all my reviews

i can´t understand why so many reviewers found this movie to be crap. in fact it is a very creative little piece of british cinema, definitely worth to take a look at. and if you have the chance (unfortunately i hadn´t), see it on the big screen. i would give it an 8/10 rating.
