Charlie's got a 'Job' to do. Having just left prison, he finds one of his friends has attempted a high risk job in Italy right under the nose of the Mafia. Charlie's friend doesn't get very far so Charlie takes over the 'Job'. Using three Mini Coopers, a couple of Jaguars and a bus, he hopes to bring Torino to a standstill, steal the Gold and escape.

Noël Coward was not in good health, and had a hard time learning lines for the movie, so his longtime companion and partner Graham Payn, had a cameo role as Bridger's assistant, so he could be on hand to help with any problems. See more »
The number and positioning of the spot lights on the front of the Minis changes between some shots, particularly when driving through the sewers. See more »
This thing starts moving and doesn't let go of you until the end, at which point you wish you were still on the ride going. We were surprised that we'd never herd of this before, especially since so many scenes are in video games these days (and times past).
This isn't one of those movies you spend your time thinking about, just sit down, watch, and let the movie unfold before you. If you're looking for good entertainment, this is it. If you are looking for meaning and some sort of significance, look elsewhere.
Good fast fun! 8/10
