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.

The opening scenes show the gang checking into Luton Airport and then getting in the van. To get to Central London from Luton, you travel through North West London, and don't cross the Thames. They arrive in London and are seen crossing the Thames at Waterloo Bridge from the South East London end. See more »
I would think that this film has been overshadowed probably due to The Bank Job being released only a couple of months previous. There's a bunch of familiar faces from films such as Lock Stock, Snatch, The Business etc and even a bloke from Eastenders. Your usual cockney lot.
That being said the acting is spot on and the dialogue is funny. Gotta love low budget British films, there's a hell of a lot more of them recently and its a welcome change to the usual big budget yankee tosh.
The characters are fun but believable, especially the young white kid really made me laugh. What made him so funny was the fact that I know kids just like him haha.
The rest of the crims were your usual hard cases, jokers and sarcastic cockney types.
Overall the storyline and dialogue was very well written and an enjoyable film throughout.
I give it 8/10 to try and make up for whichever tosspot gave it such a crap rating. Bravo.
