Daylight Robbery (2008)



Critic Consensus: This poorly executed brit crime caper wants to be a Guy Ritchie film, but ends up more like an extended Eastenders episode.

Movie Info

Using the chaos of the World Cup competition as their cover, a crew of crackerjack bank robbers scheme to steal millions of pounds in used bank notes from a London bank before the cold hard cash is incinerated as scheduled. After checking in early for a flight to Germany in order to establish their alibi, the thieves quickly sneak out to the airport parking lot, pile into a van, and stealthily drive towards their target. Their plan to smash the van into the building and grab the cash before catching their flight goes suddenly awry, however, when a member of the gang is badly injured in the crash. With the clock counting down before their flight takes to the sky, the group is soon forced to alter their plan as police attempt to negotiate with the crew through the crumpled van. The negotiations are quickly staled when the robbers refuse to negotiate, leaving the police with no other choice than to hatch a plan to storm the bank. When the police do finally gain entry into the bank, the sight they find leaves even the most sharp-minded law enforcer hopelessly speechless.

This small-budget heist movie, though hardly very original, is at least made with complete professionalism.

Imagine a sort of Dog's Dinner Afternoon.

Daylight Robbery has the away day, the-sun-shines-outside-of-Walford feel of an Enders special. All told, a bit of a Regi Blinker.

It makes Guy Ritchie look like Godard.

Daylight Robbery...the exact expression that you're likely to utter if you pay for a ticket to see this utter garbage.

August 29, 2008 | Rating: 1/6 | Full Review…

While nicely acted and never less than watchable, Daylight Robbery is ultimately disappointing thanks to unsympathetic characters, some dodgy direction and a stifling lack of tension.

Audience Reviews for Daylight Robbery


This movie is about a group of British football fans who plan a big bank robbery. They want to rob a bank and use the World Cup as their coverup. They unexpectedly end up taking hostages and must finish the heist before their plane leaves in just a few hours. This movie was good entertainment and the acting was good as well. I like watching British movies every once in a while and this movie wasn't bad.

Belter of a heist movie, well paced, quality writing and a great twist...made all the better by the fact that its a true story....
