Guy Ritchie directs Jason Statham, Holt McCallany and Jeffery Donovan in this heist thriller where a mysterious but highly capable man joins an armored car security division with a secret agenda.
Easily the best thing Ritchie and / or Statham have done in a long old time and criminally didn’t even get a cinema release on their home turf. There’s a lot of cool restraint here but still plenty of bruising action, sweaty swagger and pulp crime posturing. Unlike their mockney back catalogue this feels genuinely dangerous. Has vibes of Killing Them Softly and… whisper it… Revolver. Even if this violent and moody mix puts you off then the Stath’s off-shift collection of chunky knitted cardigans are immaculate. Perfect cast of grizzled testosterone faces to boot. More like this one please.
