An armoured car company is the target of repeated heists. Company leadership is enforcing new measures in order to tighten security. The biggest danger of a new heist lies from within the company's own ranks.
Private financier Bob Sanders, of his Pact Productions company, said in an interview with Australian film magazine 'Cinema Papers' published in the March-April 1981 edition: ''We went to the SAFC [South Australian Film Corporation] and became involved in 'Blue Fin' and 'Money Movers'. They were complex investments. In the end, we owned the Australian rights, but not the foreign. This is a shame as both films are beginning to look good in the foreign market. They didn't do terribly well here, although when 'Blue Fin' was run as a double with 'Storm Boy' along the Queensland coast it began to look quite healthy.'' See more »

It's an amazing film. The casting is amazing - notably Ray Marshall, Bryan Brown and Tony Bonne The planning of an armored car heist, you never quite know who's going to do right or wrong, until the very end when the sides are truly drawn and it culminates in an unbelievably violent finale. This, along with a toe clipping torture scene earlier on, gives it the feel of Tarantino/Avary and their ilk, but a good ten years earlier. The tension as the movies gets closer and closer to the actually heist is insane. Why this movie isn't as lauded as Beresford's films before and after this one is a mystery.
