Cash Money....
19 November 2018 | by jonerogersSee all my reviews

I Liked this a great deal...My first thoughts on any film over 90 minutes long are is it going to be dragged out or have the story extended and leave parts open but This film was not one of those.

A Film Directed by Steve McQueen who i class as pretty good, an all star cast and a great story line. it follows a group of women who's husbands have been wiped out by the cops on a raid hence the film title. One of the women has in her possession a plan laid out by her late husband on a cash earner of the illegal type and they set about carrying it out to gain some money to pay their milk bill.

The story coasts along nicely with the beginning being about the botched job of their husbands and then into recruitment, planning and execution Finale.

overall a great film, great story, good Cast and great directing makes this a worth watch film. Oh and there is a nice twist as well.
