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.

At the beginning of the movie, the pile of passports on the airport counter is neatly stacked from one viewpoint. Then, in the next scene, the passports are in disarray.

A most enjoyable film, with lots of action, moments of suspense interspersed with dry humour.
Captivating stunts, great sound track and fast paced editing complete the effects.
As the plot develops, the tension mounts and during the initial stages of the robbery, my pulse was really racing.
The characters are believable and some actually likable, even generating sympathy as the robbery begins to go wrong.
Overall, an excellent film that is highly recommended! Congratulations to Paris Leonti for squeezing so much entertainment from a low budget.
