I'm not sure how I missed this one before. Great heist movie. To echo some of the other comments, don't expect "Heat", "Ocean's" or any of that sort of Hollywood type movie. Don't expect a high action Statham movie. Do expect a web of dirty little secrets reaching high into the Royals, corruption in Scotland Yard, and civil movements of that time. Do expect to be hanging on the edge of your seat for the entire movie. I'm no expert on the true events of what this movie was based upon, but I would say it has a high believability factor. I would also agree, being a yank, that the English accent is not so thick as in other cops and robbers movies, that it is hard to understand. Well worth the watch. Statham is the greatest. 8/10
Good film worth the watch.
Saw this on the TV the other night, Thought I might as well watch it again, as it was very enjoyable movie.
During the start (and perhaps first half of the movie) everything seems almost comical, like a bunch of burlap sack brandishing cat burglars. Then BOOM - sh*t gets real. Don't go in expecting the amazing shootouts of Heat and The Town - there aren't any. It's still interesting to watch the story unfold, the British accents are light enough for an American to get used to quickly, and to boot, the movie is based off of an actual series of events.

no problem there, lady! ;)
I feel gratifying to give a comment and review, because, what would we do without them? many times I myself am not sure if to watch or not because there are no reviews!
with pleasure.

That sounds awesome! 'Jason Statham is James Bond', walla! That would be the awesomeness of the century!

@moviegirl1234...if daniel craig drops james bond, i think jason statham may be able to do him well.
Loved the movie! and, the fact that it is based on a true story makes it every more exciting! Jason Statham is one of the awesomest dudes around! I RECOMMEND!
REALLY GOOD CRIME DRAMA...saffron burrows & jason statham in a non-action-y role. from actual events in the 70's. keeps gettin' more and more interesting. I'VE SEEN IT BEFORE...IT WAS GOOD AGAIN.
Good stuff
