its not my sort of movie, it felt like a very long movie and i found it dragged in the middle which made the movie even more boring!
its an okay drama but doesnt give enough for it to be an enjoyable movie!

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

One of a series of period crime films that came out of Britain in the late 80's (see also 'Scandal' and 'The Krays') this doesn't quite work, probably because it's not sure if it's a crime film or family drama. The film splits awkwardly into 2 halves (in England and then Acapulco) which really jars and it never really feels if enough time is spent on either. The acting is fine, although Collins can only really do 'cheeky chappie' and has problems showing genuine emotion. It's ok but it feels wrong that the whole thing is presented so lightly when someone actually died during the real robbery (this isn't touched on in the film). One of those films that seemed fun at the time but isn't as good as you remember. Great soundtrack though.

Amazingly Genesis' "Illegal Alien", when played repeatedly, syncs up perfectly with the second half of this film. It's quite the mind blowing experience. Look on in increasing disinterest as Phil Collins and family recreate nearly everyone's extended vacations in Mexico.

If nothing else this film is worth it just to see Phil Collins slap his wife. Oh, and there's that weird part where the daughter starts screaming for her housekeeper in jibberish spanish as she's hurried onto a plane.

This film, seemed to drag on forever. Wasn't a big fan of it in 88'. Even lesser a fan now, There's better ways, to waste nearly two hours of your life.

Phil Collins gets his cinematic vehicle in this comedy about a man involved in the Great Train Robbery of 68. The film is really nothing more than a silly and even dull British comedy that perhaps only fans of the popstar will truly enjoy because of its novelty potential.
