Storyline

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 Anonymous

Low rent British heist yarn
5 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

DAYLIGHT ROBBERY is another unfocused British gangster/crime thriller set in the increasingly mean streets of London. The narrative involves a group of football fans who coincide a visit to the capital to watch the latest match with an audacious bank robbery that involves drilling into the vault to steal a fortune.

Unfortunately this is a low rent and rather unappealing film thanks to the writing of the central characters. They're a bunch of football hooligan types who go around shouting, swearing, and generally being unpleasant to each other the whole time, so the viewer is alienated from the beginning. A film like this needs tension, suspense, cracking dialogue, and yet DAYLIGHT ROBBERY offers very little of those things.

Instead we watch as things play out and it seems to go on forever. There are violent scenes and attempts at humour and drama but somehow it all seems to fall flat. There are familiar faces in the cast too but none of the actors put in very good turns; Shaun Williamson's Keystone cop and Paul Nicholls as 'Chubby' are an example of what you're in for here.
