Friedkin's follow up to "Sorcerer" is not a great movie, but is a little underrated all the same. It's a fairly accurate and lightly comic account of the robbery of Brink's in Boston in 1950. Peter Falk stars as a relatively small time thief who realizes that the security at Brink's is amazingly lax. He and a small group of accomplices steal a million and a half dollars. The casting is superb ... Peter Boyle, Allen Garfield (credited as "Goorwitz"), Paul Sorvino, Warren Oates and Gena Rowlands (criminally underused as Falk's wife). The first hour and a half is pretty great, the last half hour really not so good, which probably leaves a worse impression than it should.
This William Friedkin directed film is based on a real robbery which makes the story that much more fascinating. It balances comedy, drama and action well and has a really decent cast that brings it to life including Peter Falk, Paul Sorvino, Peter Boyle, Gena Rowlands. and Warren Oates. Worth checking out!
Group of thieves band together to rob a Brinks building in this lighthearted action comedy. Although it's by no means a classic, this film definitely deserves a look.
A great old flick....when on TV it will stop a surfer familiar with the movie.
Working Class Heroes--A classic heist!!
Uninteresting & not funny
Great movie with a great cast!!! (I love caper movies)
This is a great heist film, starring a great ensemble. Way better than "The Gang that Couldn't Shoot Straight." I suspect that the masks worn by the gang during the big stickup were a source of inspiration for Heath Ledger's Joker makeup. Peter Boyle and Peter Falk are tremendous together and author, actor, and famous little brother Malachy McCourt makes an appearance as money launderer Mutts Murphy. Great film.
Genius real story.
Old movue well design.
Wow that might have been easy in that time !!!!
To watch , heist lovers
Somewhat mildly entertaining film still has some interesting facets (not the least of which are the performances), but you're left feeling that the film is merely scratching the surface of this interesting story.
