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.
