Lucky, Matty, Terry, Chubby, Norman and Jay make up his unlikely gang of robbers. Setting up their alibi, the gang check in for a flight and join in with thousands of England supporters that are part of a mass exodus to The World Cup Tournament in Germany. Instead of passing through to Departure Lounge, the gang head out to the car park, pile into a van and head for Central London where they spectacularly ram raid London Exchange Bank, blocking any exit for those caught up inside. But with an unexpected turn of events, their plan is hampered from the start and they are left with a whole lot more than just a bank robbery to deal with. They have twenty hostages inside and the Police have laid siege to The Bank. There are two and a half hours before their plane leaves, and seventy million pounds in hard... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

£70 Mio in new £20 notes would weigh nearly four tonnes, and have a volume of 525l. But the banknotes stolen are old notes, scheduled for destruction, and so would have picked up grease, sweat and dirt during their five-year lifespan, with a consequent increase in their weight and bulk. See more »

highly recommended
29 April 2008 | by peterbrown55See all my reviews

A most enjoyable film, with lots of action, moments of suspense interspersed with dry humour.

Captivating stunts, great sound track and fast paced editing complete the effects.

As the plot develops, the tension mounts and during the initial stages of the robbery, my pulse was really racing.

The characters are believable and some actually likable, even generating sympathy as the robbery begins to go wrong.

Overall, an excellent film that is highly recommended! Congratulations to Paris Leonti for squeezing so much entertainment from a low budget.
