A true crime movie about a crew of retired crooks who pull off a major heist in London's jewelry district. What starts off as their last criminal hurrah, quickly turns into a brutal nightmare due to greed. Based on infamous true events.
The film follows the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster and the governmental negligence that followed. As the sailors fight for survival, their families desperately battle political obstacles and impossible odds to save them.
Based on infamous true events, a famous thief, Brian Reader (Sir Michael Caine), pulls together a band of misfit criminals to plot the biggest bank heist in British history. The thieves manage to escape with allegedly over two hundred million British pounds worth of stolen jewels and money. When Police are called to the scene and the investigation starts, the cracks between the eccentric gang members begin to show as they row over how to share the goods and become increasingly distrustful of each other.Written by
The song playing over the main titles is "What'cha Gonna Do About It" by British group The Small Faces. In 1965, The Small Faces appeared in a British film "Dateline Diamonds" which featured a diamond heist from Hatton Gardens as a plot point. See more »
When inside the car Carl (Paul Whitehouse) and Danny (Ray Winstone) are talking to each other. Carl is shown throwing a cigarette butt out the window before closing it. There's audio supporting this. When the camera changes angle from behind Carl, the window can be seen to be open again. See more »
[To Brian Reader, referring to the other gang members who contradicted his version of events ; and quoting Mandy Rice-Davies from her London-based "Scandal" testimony ]
They would say that, wouldn't they ?

With the cast they got together and the true story it is based on this should have been a winner, sadly I don't think it was, poorly written and a bit dull to be honest, caine, Broadbent and company do their best but even they look a bit bored with the whole thing, could've been so good
