    True stories don't always make good films. This one has it's moments. Interesting. Ray Winstone is doing a good job with a poor story. The 1960's are portrayed well with lots of happy smokers. And some superb classic cars..but they are all too clean ! So obviously restored and rented out for the film. Probably best to give this one a miss.

    (45%) An of sorts throw-back to the British Ealing crime comedies, only not one of the better examples, but a forgotten average run-of-the-mill one. The plot is simple stuff, even if it runs out of steam after 30 mins, and it's quite well put together, but there's not enough laughs from the stereotypical plot and cartoon like characters.

    Not a bad movie but certainly not great in any way except for capturing an air of England town life in the 1960s.

    It's not the most engaging of films but the story about trying to sell Uranium to the highest bidder in the late 60's makes this quirky and interesting enough with some odd characters in the mix.

    Disappointing comic crime caper despite a fine cast. Two east end chancres get their hands on some uranium and travel across europe to get the best price for it

    Started out very well and thought this was going to be a British Cheeky chappie crime caper but it became so confusing with the double dealings that I ended up relieved rather than sad when the film came to an end. Not one of Ray's better ............
