Another Great British Film..By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 07 Mar 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]Theres something about these British robber films, like this and The Great Train Robbers etc' that just have an atmosphere - something less violent than our U.S. counterparts, but menacing nevertheless. And this one is no exception, as it captures the period superbly. The whole thing is fantastic as a film in its own right, but the fact that it is a 'let the cat out of the bag' based on real events film makes it all the more interesting and worthy of a watch. Put that with the fact that Jason Statham has had parts like these in a bag for some time now, and again does not let us down, this is well worthy of a watch.

Hand jobBy HDX (124 reviews) from Barry, Wales , 04 Jul 2011A completely failed attempt to recreate the gritty 'come on lads, let get the buggers' style of cops and crooks movie of the 1970s. Some of the players are straight out of central casting where they had been carved from wood. Terrible plot line, awful dialogue, unbelievable characters. Watch some old episodes of The Sweeney for a far better experience. ('Cor, look at the breakfast on 'er guv!')
Most EnjoyableBy a customer , 28 Jun 2011This is a very enjoyable film. Great acting with a good storyline although just a little predictable. Well worth watching.
Highly recommendedBy a customer , 27 Jun 2011We hadn't read any reviews about this film when we watched it (obviously aware that it was going to be about a bank robbery!) and really loved the film. Apparantly based on a bank robbery which took place in the 70s, it made it even more interesting to watch! Hollywood couldn't come up with anything better!
Cockney RebelBy a customer , 17 Jun 2011Jason Statham... what's not to like!. Good plot with fine ending. May not be action packed like his Transporter films, but good and amusing dialogue with a good cast of characters.
