A group of thieves find some unexpected obstacles along the road to criminal fame and fortune in this British comedy-drama. High-strung Rock (Gary Beadle), soft spoken Sal (Pancho Russell), wide-eyed Space (Saltz), and token American Natch (John Bushell) are four small-time crooks who are offered a major score by a gangster named Boo -- a shot at a bank robbery. However, the group is short a getaway driver. Kevin (David Doyle) is a luckless slacker who has been wandering from one part of the country to another; after Rock takes pity on him and gives him a place to stay, it dawns on him that Kevin could repay his kindness to Rock by driving the getaway car. However, there's one hitch -- Kevin doesn't know how to drive, and the more Rock tries to teach him, the more befuddled he becomes. The Imitators was released in the U.S. by Troma Team Pictures in a decided change of pace from their usual outrageous exploitation items. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
