One of the best films I’ve seen so far this year. There’s a lot of intrigues about this movie because of the historical facts and the involvement of the British Royal Family, but justice was given by Roger Donaldson, director of the movie and by the whole cliquey cast especially Jason Statham who played the main character Terry Leather, head of the thieves who robbed a bank in London and had found out outrageous things aside from the money and jewels. At the outset, the pace was pretty slow but it has the intensifying theme that makes for the best bit ending and the conflicts will definitely smash your attention. The lighting and camera choices made the movie rolled back in 1971. For the plot, just watch the movie, you’ll enjoy it.
Some “Goofs” that you need to watch for:c/o IMBD
...Signs on various shop doors seen in the film advertise that credit cards "Visa" and "Mastercard" are accepted. The name "Visa" was not used for the charge card before 1977 (replacing Barclaycard in the UK); "Mastercard" was "Master Charge" until 1979.
...While at the cocktail party Anthony Johnson's Gunshot is playing in the background, this song didn't exist until 1981.
