Storyline

Setting up their alibi, the gang check in for a flight and join in with thousands of England supporters that are part of a mass exodus to The World Cup Tournament in Germany. Instead of passing through to Departure Lounge, the gang head out to the car park, pile into a van and head for Central London where they spectacularly ram raid London Exchange Bank, blocking any exit for those caught up inside. But with an unexpected turn of events, their plan is hampered from the start and they are left with a whole lot more than just a bank robbery to deal with. They have twenty hostages inside and the Police have laid siege to The Bank. There are two and a half hours before their plane leaves, and seventy million pounds in hard... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

£70 Mio in new £20 notes would weigh nearly four tonnes, and have a volume of 525l. But the banknotes stolen are old notes, scheduled for destruction, and so would have picked up grease, sweat and dirt during their five-year lifespan, with a consequent increase in their weight and bulk. See more »

Goofs

After telling Alex he doesn't know Chubby's blood group, the doctor is told to get the most common type-he orders "at least three units of 'O' negative", but the most common blood type in the UK is 'O' positive (38%)... Only 7% of the population have 'O' negative blood, and as a practicing medical professional, he would know that... See more »

Disappointing
2 August 2008 | by Sand-DancerSee all my reviews

As a British ex-pat, I am always keen to watch British movies, especially the crime/bank job/gang genre. However, I was very disappointed by this very slow-moving, cliché-ridden attempt...it was like watching a bad episode of The Bill (or maybe Eastenders, given that it had Shaun Williamson and Paul Nicholls in it!).

The story was dull, the casting poor, the acting wooden - even Geoff Bell seemed like he was just going through the motions without putting in much of an effort. Maybe I have become too accustomed to watching better and more natural 'bad boys' like Jason Statham, Colin Farrell, and even Danny Dyer in such roles.

*Big yawn - don't bother watching*
