Plot Summary

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 of Professor Corner (Barbara Flynn) and her mysterious Cyclops agency, but the situation inside gets even more complicated.
