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.

As a British ex-pat, I am always keen to watch British movies, especially the crime/bank job/gang genre. However, I was very disappointed by this very slow-moving, cliché-ridden attempt...it was like watching a bad episode of The Bill (or maybe Eastenders, given that it had Shaun Williamson and Paul Nicholls in it!).
The story was dull, the casting poor, the acting wooden - even Geoff Bell seemed like he was just going through the motions without putting in much of an effort. Maybe I have become too accustomed to watching better and more natural 'bad boys' like Jason Statham, Colin Farrell, and even Danny Dyer in such roles.
*Big yawn - don't bother watching*
