Synopsis

Sutherland and Connery wish to rob a moving train’s safe in Victorian England. They need wax impressions of keys, coffins, dead cats, and a great deal of planning in order to pull it off.

Dove Review

This movie has a lot of chasing, running on tops of trains while moving, and action. This is an interesting movie regarding how the bad guys accomplish the robberies. The plan for the robbery in the film? In the train there is a safe which contains the gold and it is locked with four keys. Each key is in different hands of three different men. Their challenge is to separate the owners from their keys so they can get into the safe. Some funny parts to watch for in this film include, for instance, a scene at the end when Pierce (main character) is caught and brought to court and the judge tells him his fines, and Pierce replies, “How am I going to pay for that?” The whole court room laughs. This is a clean-cut film for ages twelve and above.
