    Phil Collins plays Buster Edwards in the film, it's not a role that suits him and he really couldn't act (as much as I love him). The soundtrack is amazing though.

    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.

    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!
