Storyline

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 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

When they stuff the bank manager into the cupboard, he is wrapped in chains, with a bomb round his neck and black tape over his mouth and a cloth sack over his head. When they drag him back out, all that has disappeared. See more »

Definitely NOT the next Italian Job - Great PR, very average film
19 August 2008 | by inteleartsSee all my reviews

OK - firstly, why are all the 10* reviews from people with only one review? Secondly, to equate this to the Italian Job (Even the new version!) is a bloody insult.

It is just a basic stick-up job with lots of shouting and screams at the beginning, some ludicrous device about how to get money out of a City of London bank (Sure banks have with some 70 million have no motion detectors...) in the middle, and an OK third part where it all goes wrong.

It is just a mess, too chaotic; no or very little humour or charm, and after the first half-hour I had completely lost interest.

It is seems from the ground up a Let's Make A Lads Film - even down to the obligatory brunette as hostage - and I just ended up feeling that the writers sat around a table and said "Well lads, what would guys like in this?" "Right, football (There isn't any), hardnuts, big haul of cash, mockney accents, and hard attitudes, stupid cops etc;" and originality be damned.

If this is the best crime movie (It's not a heist movie - it's way too blatant to even get near that category) since the Italian Job - then we're all in the deepest poo...

NOT recommended Watch it when it comes on Sky, which it will forever...
