Very disappointed
23 December 1998 | by TC-4See all my reviews

I saw this movie just lately for the first time. The Brinks job took place about 20 miles from my house and made the local news for a long time. This movie was very poorly done with the bottom of the barrel production values. It was a total waste of 2 hours of my life. This was typical of most "tv-movies".
