This is London

You are left wanting more rather than thinking less would have been better.

Guardian [UK]

It's tremendously good fun, though lighter in tone than Ealing's two scabrous masterpieces Kind Hearts and Coronets and The Ladykillers...

Daily Telegraph

Both a joyous comedy and a tense thriller. Indeed, its climactic car-chase sequence is easily as dramatic as any of those found in today's summer blockbusters.

[A] superb and subtle crime-film spoof.

Inflation may have dented the allure of its 1m bullion heist, but this 1951 Ealing comedy is still 24-carat gold.

The real joy of the movie is less about the caper than these two invisible, workaday men discovering the thrills of attempting something extraordinary - even if it is felonious.

Charles Crichton's direction is subtle but inventive - check out the snaking, near-single-take opening in a Rio cabana - and the performances, writing and plotting are faultless.

The genre of the caper-gone-wrong crime comedy may have been invented circa 1950 in Ealing Studios… Mob avoids most of what became the clichés of the genre.
