King of Thieves (2018)

This film is in love with the mythology of gangsters. So it’s less a story about the Hatton Garden robbery, and more a homage to the myth of movie gangsters played by the cast. The Hatton Garden plot is a distraction, a coat hook, to give hard men geezers one last job. I’d be more interested in a film about Charlie Croker as an old man, and how he knows Carlin, than a story about a real life robbery. That said, there’s still lots to like.
