This 2008 caper movie is fun and full of action, but has the additional benefit of being based on the true story of the 1971 robbery of the Baker Street Bank in London, which was kept more or less quiet for 30 years because of a government gag order to cover the asses of crooked politicians and cops who were caught up in the drama.
Martine (Saffron Burrows
) offers her friend Terry (Jason Statham
) a chance to rob a bank. Their target is the safe deposit room with boxes full of money and goodies worth millions. What they don't realize is that the boxes also contain a wealth of secrets; log books, ledgers, and photos that would cause a huge scandal if they became public.
Looking a little bit like the gang that couldn't shoot straight, Terry's boys nevertheless manage to pull off the robbery, but then they wind up with cops, the government, and gangsters all on their tail to recover their dirty laundry.
This movie is interesting and exciting, well worth an evening of your time.
