So usual, so forgettable.

I will be straight. I was deceived by this one. A story I have seen a thousand times before. A sort of cop impersonates a professional robber in order to help police force to catch spies in search of hot stuff, some very important documents hidden in a safe. And our hero is, by the way, accused of a murder he did not commit.

The following is predictable. Useless for me to tell it to you, who read me. There were tons of this kind in the British crime movie industry. Willima Sylvester had a similar character in OFFBEAT, as far as I know. But the Cliff Owen's film is far better than this. The caper is worthwhile, but not in this one.

Such a shame. Forget it.
