A tough guy turned star. He did something others wouldn't dare. Always one step ahead of the cops and always downed a whiskey before robbing a bank. Growing up in a broken home Attila (Bence Szalay) was a troubled teenager, even spent time in a youth prison. Through a rather bizarre turn of events he escaped to Hungary from Transylvania. But his new life turned out to be much harder than the old one. He was the goal-keeper on a hockey team, but still had no money, no girlfriend; but then he found something that he's really good at. He was reckless, fast and meticulous. He started robbing post offices, banks, travel offices. The more he stole, the hungrier he got. Nothing was enough for himself and his new love (Piroska Móga). But his final job didn't go as planned and the determined investigator, (Zoltán Schneider) who's long been on his tail finally caught him and made him face the consequences. But the cop-robber game is far from over. A story of a fascinating life, full of amazing ...Written by

Great Hungarian bankheist movie. Thrilling action packed photography, good acting. Based on a fascinating true story. Unknown little gem!
Quality made Hungarian heist movie from director Nimrod Antal, who has made many other decent action movies before. This is not a masterpiece, but certainly quite a lot better than other run of the mill heist movies out there. Dont shy away by the fact that it is a Hungarian picture, this heist flick can stand the comparison with any great American heist movie. Honestly.
It's an underdog story, based on true events, about a Hungarian kid without any money or a job, who starts robbing his first bank out of sheer need for money. His first heist goes smoother then expected and he gets the hang of it. His many succesfull robberies become a national Hungarian media spectacle and he sort of becomes a Robin Hood. It's even more fun to watch, since this all has actually happened for real.
The photography, editing and soundtrack are all of high quality. I mention these technical details because many action movies just dont get the filming of action scenes right. This one fortunately does though, resulting in really suspenseful, action packed chase scenes. With good acting to top it of. Like I said it is certainly not a masterpiece, but it is really an enjoyable underdog heistmovie, which deserves more attention from the true heist movie fan, because it has all the ingredients I could wish for in a good heist movie.
