The incredible true story of the Hatton Garden Bank Robbery. The largest heist in British history with a reported £40 Million worth of gold and jewellery taken. The horde was so great the thieves had to take it out in wheelie bins.
The press quickly ran wild with speculation as to who could have orchestrated such an audacious crime. Was it an inside job? A tech savvy criminal syndicate? Maybe the Russian Mafia? Turns out it was a bunch of geriatric cockney geezers with bad hips, arthritis and a propensity to fall asleep at inappropriate times.
Director James Marsh (Man on Wire, The Theory of Everything) has assembled a glitzy cast of British screen legends for this sweary tale of decrepit crooks and perfidious pensioners lead by Michael Caine with sterling support from Michael Gambon, Tom Courtney, Ray Winstone, Paul Whitehouse and an against-type turn from Jim Broadbent as the dangerous psychopath of the group.
As with all the best caper movies the heist is only half the story, quickly paranoia takes hold and the gang start to turn on each other as the police rapidly close in.
A fun and thrilling film that is bound to make a steal at the box office.
