The Bank Job

The feedback we got about this movie was quite good: "a wonderful heist movie", somebody said. "Unbelievable that this is based on a true story", was another view. And yes, the movie is very entertaining, and very British as well. It feels a bit like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and the action is fast and thick.

The actors are excellent, the music is swinging and the way London in the 1970's is recreated is quite realistic. Top dialogues and characters you can relate to. What more do you want on a Saturday night?


Kevin Swain: So what are these films you're in?
Dave Shilling: Ah, forget about it.
Kevin Swain: Go on.
Dave Shilling: Technically, it's what you call pornography.

In September 1971, thieves tunneled into the vault of a bank in London's Baker Street and looted safe deposit boxes of cash and jewelry worth over three million pounds. None of it was recovered. Nobody was ever arrested. The robbery made headlines for a few days and then disappeared - the result of a 'D' Notice, gagging the press. This film reveals what was hidden for the first time. The story involves murder, corruption and a sex scandal with links to the Royal Family - a story in which the thieves were the most innocent people
