Time Out says

This pedestrian bank heist 'thriller', with its resolutely old-fashioned air bolstered by the token presence of an American star (Sheen) and the crushing earnestness with which everyone else approaches their hackneyed roles as if they were fresh-minted, was released to critical and box-office responses of consensual indifference. London's sewers (though which the bank is approached, and which are of course menaced by a rainstorm flood) don't have quite the cinematic resonance of LA's storm drains, and only tend to throw the mind even further back and off course to numerous POW tunnel movies.
