"Having chuckled at the trailer for several weeks, I wondered if the film would live up to the hype. I was pleasantly surprised to find it does. The first thing to strike me is how well this movie is cast. I appreciate the John Thaw fan club will want to stone me for this, but I think Winston’s far better than Thaw. The second thing was the good storyline – enough twists to keep it interesting and thrilling without getting too far up its own arse and losing the viewer. I thought the action sequences excellent - particularly the bank heist/Trafalgar Sq/National Gallery, and the photography superb. This film isn’t quite last year’s “Drive”, but it comes very close. It'd be a crime if there wasn't a sequel. 7/10 or nearly 4 stars."
