A true crime movie about a crew of retired crooks who pull off a major heist in London's jewelry district. What starts off as their last criminal hurrah, quickly turns into a brutal nightmare due to greed.
Based on infamous true events, a famous thief, Brian Reader (Sir Michael Caine), pulls together a band of misfit criminals to plot the biggest bank heist in British history. The thieves manage to escape with allegedly over two hundred million British pounds worth of stolen jewels and money. When Police are called to the scene and the investigation starts, the cracks between the eccentric gang members begin to show as they row over how to share the goods and become increasingly distrustful of each other.Written by
Blaming "negative publicity," which included investigative reporting that they had not updated their computer, closed circuit, or alarm systems in at least fifteen to twenty years, the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company unsurprisingly went out of business just a few months after the events shown in this movie took place.

Several times in the film, Kenny's mouth does not move when he is saying a line. For instance, when he is in the pub and is offered a double shot of vodka, "Why not?" is heard, but it is clearly ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement). See more »

What did you expect?
For those who say this movie is slow and low budget: what did you expect? This is not Transformers, there is no Mark Wahlberg or Bruce Willis from the 90's, no CGI, no John Woo feat. Michael Bay. This is just a well delivered true story, brought to you by many of the best actors of our time. And it does not want to be more, so why do you?
