Storyline

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

The person who pointed out the error about the Taxi license plate, was himself in error. The Taxi was going to Luton Airport and not Heathrow. See more »

Congratulations
29 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

I met Paris, the director at Salerno film festival, we were both in competition with our films. And the first minute I saw him in his hat, I had the feeling that this guy is something really interesting. Then I watched his film, and I was really amazed. It is not like a first film, but the work of a real industry professional with a lot of real talent. The story is clever, very well written, the actors are just good as well, the actions are perfect, and the whole thing is just catching you from the first minute till the end titles. Funny, entertaining, this is what cinema is for. So, Paris, Congratulations! It is good to have you as a friend....
