I was expecting action and intrigue like "The Italian Job" or the Danny Ocean series or Snatch or movies in a similar vein.
But a story about Princess Caroline being a sex freak that perpetuates itself into the reason for the bank heist in 1971 was futile to me.
Add to that, a lame soundtrack and score and no chemistry between Statham and anyone else, especially Saffron Burrows (or his wife).
It just didn't work for me personally.
