Average bow out to a great series
12 June 2007 | by rich_groovySee all my reviews

If 'Somebody Loses, Somebody...wins?' is a Man in a Suitcase take on the bond film, then this is their caper movie. Owing a lot to the heist movies so popular in the preceding decade, this episode sees McGill gathering a team for a 'robbery' which, inevitably, goes wrong.

Naturally everything isn't everything it seems - McGill is in fact after some sensitive information. Things are complicated by the group's discovery by a lost tourist. The woman becomes the centre of heated debate between honourable McGill and his more bloodthirsty crew..

The supporting cast are all fairly good and this episode sees standard direction and writing - but nothing more. It's all very average and its a real shame to see such a powerful series end on a whimper rather than a bang. Reed de Rouen must have been proud of it, however - as well as co-writing, he appears as one of the gang.
