Our Score
Based on a notorious robbery, this well executed TV film stars John Mahoney (Frasier) as Jimmy "the Gent" Burke who, with his gang of colourful New York hoodlums, plans and executes a $10 million heist at Kennedy airport - with surprising results. The script is tight, the direction is well paced, and all involved seem to have a real feel for the shady underworld depicted here. This "gang-that-couldn't shoot straight" crime caper makes for an enjoyable diversion, and a warning to anyone who thinks that there's any honour among thieves.


Fact-based gangster thriller about the legendary 1970s Kennedy Airport robbery, led by infamous criminal mastermind Jimmy `The Gent' Burke. Starring John Mahoney, Karen Young, Tony LoBianco and Gerry Bamman.
