In the immediate scenes leading up to the diamond heist Mickey's are sporting roses in their lapels and shirts. As the two gangs start to fight underground it's clear they no longer are wearing their roses. See more »
"Berlin Job" is the name given to the recut version (97:24 runtime). "St George's Day" is the uncut version (104:23 PAL or ~108:50 runtimes). Recut version loses the football-fight organsing and ferry scenes, a few Amsterdam scenes, and some conversations extending character relationships. See more »
I strongly urge potential film-makers to go and see this film immediately, take copious, methodical notes of how this film has been cast, written, composed and produced Then go and do the exact opposite to have yourself a blockbuster movie.
I'm fortunate that being a cinema advertiser (Just 200 meters from this cinema, you know the deal), I have a pass that gets me in to my local for free, and even then I'm thinking of asking for my money back. I went to see if the reviews, all of which pretty much panned this film could be correct and the truth is they don't tell half the story. Whatever bad review you've read of this film multiply it by a factor of 10.
In 25 odd years of regular cinema-going I don't think I have ever seen a film as bad as this(and I've watched every film Michael Caine has ever made). 10 minutes in and I found myself making shopping lists, looking at my fellow cinema goers (all 11 of them) and trying to figure out if they were having an equally awful time and generally doing anything but being in the moment with this film which completely fails to grab your attention at any level. I'm extremely pleased to note that the figures from boxofficemojo.com are declaring this a complete Turkey apparently it's taken $22,000 in the 2 weeks since it's release. So hopefully it will be released on Videotape any day now hopefully Betamax so as not to bother too many people. Don't give up the day job Mr Harper (whatever that is)
