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.

Trivia

£70 Mio in new £20 notes would weigh nearly four tonnes, and have a volume of 525l. But the banknotes stolen are old notes, scheduled for destruction, and so would have picked up grease, sweat and dirt during their five-year lifespan, with a consequent increase in their weight and bulk. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, the pile of passports on the airport counter is neatly stacked from one viewpoint. Then, in the next scene, the passports are in disarray. The scene changes half a dozen times while the guys are talking to the receptionist, so the passports keep re-arranging themselves constantly. See more »

Good from far but far from good
9 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Expected much more from the movie after the looking at the plot. Daylight Robbery is an epitome of a mediocre movie....The movie is watchable but do not expect anything from it.. Maybe the movie lacks flare and punch but on the whole it ain't as bad as others seem to have commented...it has a pretty good ending compared with the style the movie goes in. Too many unanswered questions arise as one is watching the movie.. The cast ain't a solid one, with no existence of a main role as such. With too many flaws in the planning and execution of the storyline , i highly doubt this movie will even make a decent run in the theaters.. So, finally think twice before buying this movie or else your expression would be like " hey, have i seen this one before"..Cheers lads.. Brit movies will always rock irrespective!!!! Therefore this movie gets a average but merciful 5.5-6 out of 10...
