On the surface, it's a seamless caper. A beautiful bank robbery staged by a veteran expert and his two exuberant heirs-apparent. Eddie (Rhys Ifans), the cocky leader, and his cohort Ian (David Schneider), dream of adventure, riches and fame, while legendary thief and safe cracker Maitland (Sir John Hurt) harbors more complicated motives. Nevertheless, the trio unites in an ingenious scheme. The plan is meticulous, the results are disastrous. Dressed in Saville row suits and bowler hats, the criminals confidently execute the heist, but an unexpected and unwelcome rival gang compromises the robbery. A throng of Police and S.W.A.T. teams arrive. The authorities, led by a bungling Inspector Badger (John Benfield), stage a raid that goes horribly wrong. A seige ensues and the would-be robbers become hostages, unwillingly allied with this suspect crew of new colleagues, and an enigmatic woman named Jo (Claire Skinner). The assault continues outside the bank, under the efficient supervision ... Written by TJ

The greatest Saturday night film ever made
14 October 1999 | by Monkey-55See all my reviews

Geordie Pete turned me onto this film a few months ago. He had a pirate copy from some film geek mate in LA, as usual for Pete it was second generation and the sound was ropey, but he swore it was one of the best films of the nineties. We scoffed, but after a few beers we slapped it on. We p***** ourselves laughing. I looked forward to it's cinema release. I was shocked by the reaction of the british press, it was called "possibly the worst british film ever made" if that's not a recamendation I don't know what is. After suffering through the dreary War Zone which the press loved I don't trust them as far as I could throw them. Yes, it is a heist gone wrong film, I can't get enough of them. It's completley over the top and works perfectly with a crate of beer. Dondadda!!!
