The robbery in Melbourne is based on the "Great Bookie Robbery" of 1976. Six men robbed bookmakers in the Victoria Club, as the bookmakers met to settle up debts after a day's racing. Estimated takings were between $14 and $16 million. The true figure was never known; the bookmakers were reluctant to divulge how much money they had lost, to avoid the interest of the tax office. The six thieves became the targets of other criminals and corrupt police demanding a share. By 1987, all the known thieves were believed dead, either killed by other criminals or police, or had disappeared. The money was never recovered. See more »

It started as, what seemed to be, a fresh new heist flick. Instead I got a dragging anticlimactic, film that missed it's opportunities to wow audiences and secure itself in many action libraries. Much of the "clever" tidbits, such as butcher speak, that alone would give the film a good platform, cause confusion and make the film seem stagnant. I almost couldn't wait for it to be over. The end is sadly predictable, but could have gone farther with its female characters without losing the bond between the brothers.
Also Guy's nose looks weird throughout the film, like Nicole Kidman's in The Hours, it made me a little bothered. I couldn't tell if it was fake or if he had had some work done.. Watch the film if you must, but I wouldn't subject it to friends.
