Australia released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.85:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Featurette, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: The counting house at Darcey's Security Services is a fortress. Security is intense and any would-be-robbers have little hope, unless they get "inside" help. Money Movers is a fast-moving, ultra-violent telling of Australia's biggest and bloodiest armed robbery, the theft of $20 million from a payroll counting office. Directed by acclaimed film maker Bruce Beresford (Breaker Morant, The Club) and boasting a top-notch Aussie cast including Bryan Brown, Charles (Bud) Tingwell, Tony Bonner, Ed Devereaux and Terrence Donovan, Money Movers delivers an intriguing plot and hair-raising suspense with incredible pace and ferocity. A combination that thriller addicts cannot afford to miss! ...Money Movers

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 5 July 2009
Money Movers is one of those forgotten movies that make for great discoveries. In the documentary on the excellent Australian DVD, Bruce Beresford admits he thinks it's a silly and 'justifiably underrated' movie, but this tough thriller about an armoured car robbery is pretty terrific on its own terms. Fast-paced and multi-layered, there's an undercurrent of barely suppressed anger and moral decay running throughout, with Terence Donovan's hate-fuelled employee finding his plans to rob the counting house (with the aid of the corrupt union man who uses the workers to vote down any new security measures that threaten their plan) starting to come undone thanks to the appearance of a corrupt cop, an insurance investigator and a 'businessman' who wants in on the deal. It's exceptionally well cast for the most part (although Tony Bonner is disastrously bland, although his Skippy the Bush Kangaroo co-star Ed Devereaux is superb as the no-BS accidental hero), has a wicked sense of humour, moves like an express train and is blessed with extraordinarily good fight choreography by Alf Joint (better known as the stunt man who did the cable car jump in Where Eagles Dare).

A big flop in its day, it holds up remarkably well today. Just be warned - it's definitely from the days before Australia had heard of feminism.

The story of an armored car robbery, apparently based on a true case. The acting is solid and the action, especially for a
small budget film, is deftly handled, There are a number of good twists and turns along the way.

On the other hand, there's a bit of a feeling something's missing, like a unifying theme or underlying ideas. Or even
character development.

Unlike (for example) Ben Affleck's recent The Town", this is a pretty simple film, just telling you an exciting story as solid
B movie entertainment, and not aiming for much more. But there's certainly room for that alongside more `thoughtful'
or character orientated crime flicks.

Well shot, well directed by a young Bruce Beresford, and worth seeing if you're a fan of the genre.

The DVD looks quite nice and has a very enjoyable 'looking back' making of documentary featuring
many of the participants reminiscing about the film through the filter of the many years since.
