Review

Our Score
Albert Finney and Susannah York, together for the first time since Tom Jones, star in this lacklustre heist caper. Martin Sheen is the obligatory American import, whose in-depth knowledge of bank security systems and hefty overdraft make him the ideal partner for Finney's mastermind. The blag itself is pretty routine, although the action picks up slightly when the gang's escape through the London sewers is hindered by a torrential downpour. Drably directed by John Quested, not even Lalo Schifrin's score can enliven the proceedings.

Summary

An American architect loses his job, and with work hard to come by he finds himself joining a group of thieves with an audacious plan to rob a seemingly impregnable London bank. Crime drama, starring Martin Sheen, Albert Finney and Susannah York.
