It's always intriguing to find an old movie no-one's here's reviewed before. Sometimes they turn out to be buried treasure: this one turns out to be yet another shoddy-looking British production from the 1970s with a fish-out-of-water American lead.
David Soul was always too broad for anything but TV, but he's likeable enough here and the rest of the cast add local colour and charm. It's cheaply shot but the rural locations are quaint and atmospheric.
The Stick-Up aims to be a cut-price comedy Bonnie & Clyde - or perhaps Paper Moon - and succeeds in creating at least a few agreeable moments in a mildly Withnail-like setting.
