KING OF THIEVES 


Drama   108 mins  Certificate 15



Not to be confused with last season’s The Hatton Garden Job, but covering the same ground, King of Thieves is the incredible true story of the spectacular Hatton Garden diamond heist, the biggest and most daring in British history, humorously told through career best performances from a stellar cast which includes Sir Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent, Ray Winstone, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay and Charlie Cox.

 
 “The script is smart and witty, neither patronising nor soft centred. Marsh keeps the action moving fast enough to stop those OAPs in the audience from taking their midday nap . . .  Although reminiscent of Ealing Studios in the Guinness era, there is nothing fuddy about this duddy.”  Eye for Film

 

“Michael Caine gives one of his best performances in years as the pensive, recently widowed mastermind Brian Reader, resolutely
adhering to the notion of honour among thieves, while Paul Whitehouse and Michael Gambon provide perfectly judged comic relief. But most striking of all

is Jim Broadbent, whose cuddly, avuncular exterior gives way to a figure of genuine menace.”  Radio Times
