DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) The breathtaking stunt by Sean Connery on top of the moving train dodging bridges after bridges. The last 20 minutes of the movie are unmissable.

 
CONS –
1) The first hour of the heist is engaged in extracting the 4 keys. The third and final act saves this movie.
2) Ridiculous climactic escape.

 

 
QUOTE –
Judge: Now, on the matter of motive, we ask you: Why did you conceive, plan, and execute this dastardly and scandalous crime?
Edward Pierce: I wanted the money.
