Alex masterminds an ambitious plan to steal millions of untraceable cash that is stacked in the underground vaults of The London Exchange Bank, waiting for its last journey, Incineration. Lucky, Matty, Terry, Chubby, Norman and Jay make up his unlikely gang of robbers. 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
£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 »

There is a fine tradition of British gangster and bank robbery films- this does not add to that tradition. Low budget can be good. Limited claustrophobic locations , good writing and fine acting can do an awful lot. Here they contribute nothing. There is a lot of shouting, a lot of swearing, no humour, no sense of character identity, just a whole load of characters that you want caught as soon as possible, not because you care, but because you want the film to end.
Director and writer Paris Leonti has nothing to say, the direction is laborious, the scenes derivative, the dialogue risible. Shaun Williamson is ludicrously miscast as the Policeman in charge of facing down the robbery. He makes no attempt whatsoever to give the role any character, he plays it as Fat Barry from East Enders, he can't be bothered, and that transmits itself to the audience.
The plot is hopeless, the stocking masks totally ineffective, the Police response wholly unbelievable. Some of the lines are off the scale of cringe worthy. Tiffany Mulheron offers some brief moments of respite as an attractive hostage, and that is about as good as it gets. Avoid at all costs. On no account pay money to see this . If it is available free of charge – do something else with your valuable time.
