I just watched this movie yesterday. I guess it just got released, but I couldn't find it. Luckily someone put it online.
Anyway, this movie was incredible. Since watching the movie, I did some research, and this move was completely based on actual events and facts. Only robbing the same bank twice in one day was fictional.
Tom Jane was great in the role as Andre Stander, and was excellent in his confidence within the character. its too bad this film wasn't more popular in North America
I am going to have to buy the DVD. Hopefully it will have some interesting extras
