Buster (1988)

My Rating

Movie Info

On August 8, 1963, the Royal Mail train, on its nighttime run from London to Glasgow, was robbed by 15 men who got away with 2.6 million pounds (today the equivalent of $35 million). Buster tells the story of one of the junior robbers, Buster Edwards (played by pop singer Phil Collins), in a crime that came to be known as the Great Train Robbery. The film details the planning of the famous heist, but its main concern is Buster's relationship with his family and his devotion to his wife June

The Phil Collins movie where he both supplies the soundtrack and fills the lead role. A cheesy but loveable British 80s classic about the Great Train Robbery, set in my home locality.

Phil Collins as Buster Edwards, one of the Great Train Robbers, shows the whole thing before, during and after through Buster's eyes and his wife played by the talented Julie Walters.

Filled with various other known British actors to tell a pretty interesting story of true crime.

VERDICT: Worth a watch, a true story of a London villain
