Alex masterminds an ambitious plan to steal millions of untraceable cash that is stacked in the underground vaults of The London Exchange Bank, waiting for its last journey, Incineration. Lucky, Matty, Terry, Chubby, Norman and Jay make up his unlikely gang of robbers. Setting up their alibi, the gang check in for a flight and join in with thousands of England supporters that are part of a mass exodus to The World Cup Tournament in Germany. Instead of passing through to Departure Lounge, the gang head out to the car park, pile into a van and head for Central London where they spectacularly ram raid London Exchange Bank, blocking any exit for those caught up inside. But with an unexpected turn of events, their plan is hampered from the start and they are left with a whole lot more than just a bank robbery to deal with. They have twenty hostages inside and the Police have laid siege to The Bank. There are two and a half hours before their plane leaves, and seventy million pounds in hard... Written by
This is completely laughable. How can anyone rate this movie a 10? Oh. Wait a minute. If you're part of its PR push or the writer/director or the producer etc, I guess you'd have a very good reason to be giving this a ten. But people beware, this is an over-hyped, poorly written, terribly photographed piece of shouty garbage. The characters have zero development, zero humor, zero charm and zero impact. I saw another Brit film (The Bank Job) while I was in London and though I thought it was below average, I could at least watch it without crying into my popcorn. My British friends were more disappointed than I was and the director's claim that Guy Ritchie is an amateur goes to show what an absolutely talentless fool he really is. This movie looks cheap, the actors look nasty (except the girl), the cast acts loudly instead of convincingly. The whole thing is so disjointed that even the most ardent fans of Brit crime thrillers will hope that this director hangs up his megaphone immediately. Fans of Uwe Boll, may want to seek this out, but everyone else beware. If you see a rating higher than a 4, then it's been posted by either liars or idiots. Not so much an opinion, but a fact.
