Did You Know?


The major locations of the movie - the Stavanger Police Station, the Nokas Cash Central and the Cathedral Square - are all the actual locations of the original 2004 robbery. Due to a 2008 expansion of the Stavanger Police Station, the pyrotechnics of the scene where the truck is set ablaze in the driveway came very close to destroying the windows and the facade of the new section.

This is one of the worst bank robbery movies ever made
23 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just can't believe how awfully this movie was made. The whole movie was like a joke. The screenplay was such a bad one with horrible scenario and plot, then the directing and the acting of this Nowegin movie were also so bad. If this movie was made just because the producers wanted to expose the poor organized Nowegin police system, the poor training and the poor, amateurish response to deal with an emergency, their police force was just too disgusting to be described with proper words; then it served pretty well and right on the money. If this movie was for the purpose to expose and to make laugh on those stupid morons who decided to rob the bank with such a poor plan, then again, you should consider this movie did a great job. If this movie was made for the above-mentioned two purposes, then it also served well by showing the Nowegin common citizens were so naive and so numb to almost anything happened around them. But for the movie itself, it was just a piece of worthless recount of a so-called 'based-on-a-true-story' incident. There was no realistic feeling of this whole movie, the police, the band robbers, they both failed so miserably, because they failed to deliver a suspenseful thrill in the least. Nowegin movies usually are exceptionally well scripted, directed and acted, but not this one. This is a very hollow, empty and void movie that had failed completely.
