Storyline

Filmed in Adelaide, South Australia, Bruce Beresford's adaptation of Devon Minchin's novel is a raw fast-paced independent feature with an all star Australian cast including Bryan Brown, Charles 'Bud' Tingwell, 'Terry Donovan' and Tony Bonner. Story has a group of crooks plan a heist to steal twenty million dollars from a Security Firm counting house only to have the scam overtaken by a crime boss due to a corrupt police detective and the plot foiled by a wily ex-cop.

Trivia

The movie's title, 'Money Movers', was shown during the opening credits in a display font outlined over a photographic image of Australian banknotes. The money bills seen were the paper Australian $10 and $20 bill. These banknotes are no longer manufactured by the Australian Mint as they were replaced with plastic bills in 1988. See more »

One of my favorite films
29 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

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.
