Storyline

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.

Slow and dud
7 October 2018 | by somjeet-roySee all my reviews

The whole storyline feels so washed up and the way the movie progresses makes it so dull that you will find people yawning by the end of the movie. The robbery itself is so badly portrayed in the movie that you will hardly find your foot on the gas pedal, let alone any suttle suspense.
