        Well the IMDb link says that it was released in the U.K. on 14 April 2017. Maybe they wanted to keep it as secret as the robbery

            Down here in Worthing we often don't see films for months, sometimes years after the release date.
            I think they have just released Michael Powell's latest at the Connaught..

              Apparently there are another two similar films in the works. If we're really unlucky, this may replace the Essex Boys saga as a go-to lazy idea for cheap gangster films.

                I've seen it and it isn't much to write home about. Bunch of aging East End geezers stage an 'old school' bank job while bickering amongst themselves, downing pints at the local and making geriatric jokes. Lots of flash but vacuous camera trickery as the soundtrack blasts out loud but forgettable music. Imagine We Still Steal the Old Way directed by Guy Ritchie and you are in the right vibe.

                Joely Richardson is completely wasted in a cameo appearance as Ingrid Pitt.

                        Watched it on Apple TV a couple of days ago. Don't waste your time very poor.

                          While the actual event should have been heart-stoppingly tensed, the film was without suspense, and is cack-handed and mundane, with a paint-by-numbers voiceover from Matthew Goode. The screenplay cast was good.
