Going out with a bang!
18 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

So; after eight series 'Hustle' is finally over and the question is will the get away with the greatest con of their lives or will they end up dead on a London rooftop? If the opening scene is anything to go by they will all end up dead; after all we saw blood spray from each of them as an unknown assassin blasted away with an Uzi! The action then jumps back four days to the moment Mickey is telling the gang about his next choice of mark; Madani Wasem, a Bahraini man who celebrated his father's death only to be infuriated when his father's company was snatched away from him. The fact that he had his enemies killed should have warned Mickey off the job but he thinks it is worth the risk. The con itself is less complicated than many in the series; they just need to let him think that they have a scheme for knowing which way the stock market is going a fraction of a second before the Stock Exchange registers the price changes. There could be a couple of major problems though; Wasem's financial adviser is none other than former gang member Stacey and he intends to kill the gang as soon as he learns how their scam works!

While it is a shame the series is over it certainly went out on a high; the story wasn't overly convoluted but did contain some of the most dramatic moments in the series… after all we saw them getting gunned down… of course this being 'Hustle' I doubt many fans will believe they are dead; in fact being shown them dying at the start was almost proof that they wouldn't! The only question is how do they survive? I'm sure plenty of viewers will guess the ending; usually I find it more fun if I don't guess the details but here I'm glad my suspicions were confirmed as it couldn't have been a better conclusion! As always the regulars did a fine job and it was great to see Jaime Murray back as Stacey. If you've watched the series in the past don't miss this episode, even if you haven't been watching for a while, it's a cracker!
