- TV Mini Series
The Hatton Garden Heist will tell the true story of the most remarkable and lucrative robbery in British history. The story of an ageing gang of grandads, who so nearly got away with it. Analogue criminals in a digital world, this will be the cinematic account of a group of plucky old school bandits (and the one that got away) who went down in a blaze of glory attempting the crime of the century.
A heist movie for the new age.
Had this movie been made in the distant past, then I reckon it would have been made with just a sneaking empathy and admiration towards the characters and a 'good side' to them may have been evident..but there is nobody to admire here. The characters are depicted (and played very well, by our favourite trouper actors) as aging, unhappy,self serving,greedy and arrogant whom you would not trust with your loose change to buy you a chocolate bar. A swansong perhaps to a dying breed where all their actions can be seen and judged, but a reminder that today's cyber criminal can cause even more mayhem, misery and poverty but his/her actions are not seen and mostly will not be punished.
