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
When inside the car Carl (Paul Whitehouse) and Danny (Ray Winstone) are talking to each other. Carl is shown throwing a cigarette butt out the window before closing it. There's audio supporting this. When the camera changes angle from behind Carl, the window can be seen to be open again. See more »
The film is inspired from the true story of the Hatton Garden heist (thus, the script is already half-written) and the main actors are usually excellent. Despite this excellent a priori, the global result is bland, dull and devoid of passion. So boring that I was almost sleepy. As a synthesis: frustrating!
