A crew of senior crooks assemble to break into an underground safe in London’s Hatton Garden jewellery district in what will go down as one of the largest burglaries history.

‘One of the most refreshing aspects of the film is that they are all shown in their full greed and malevolence.’ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
