Anthony Robins meets the Manchurian candidate.
4 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Derren does it again! Although conspiracy theorists would say that governments have been doing this for decades. Three business men and a woman are put through a selection of "motivational" courses where Derren aims to subliminally motivate them to perform an armoured car raid. Do they do it you will have to see! Derren may at times be a little too smug for my liking but you can't do what he does without having a commanding ego. Not much more to say if you have seen any of Derren's previous work you will pretty much know what to expect from this latest outing. Funnily enough with all that real money being thrown around it did not say at the end if the participants got any of it for going through what they did!
