The Great Train Robbery [DVD]
The Great Train Robbery [DVD]
Dvd ~ Luke Evans
Price: £7.10

4.0 out of 5 stars Very real, 7 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was curious to know what actually happened in this event. I totally enjoyed the movie. I especially liked the fact that they did not glamorize or romantisize the thieves. I also liked how they showed first the thieves' perspective, then the police. Very well acted and entertaining. No over-the-top performances. The actors conveyed the attitudes and feelings of the characters with great conviction. The sets were also fantastic, so early seventies. True life stories are always difficult to portray, but this movie did it admirably. I certainly recommend this movie.

Finally an excellent series for the whole family! There is a little something for everyone: legend, myth, mystery, romance actions, not to mention lots of laughs and a few tears.

Good acting, in particular Rue Penry-Jones. A good adaptation of the story. It shows that a quality piece of writing always makes for a fantastic story.

Richard Armitage is excellent in this very gritty series. Wow, lots of action and good storylines. I guess it certainly prepared him for Spooks.

Excellent! Everything you want in a drama series was here: wonderful, endearing characters, drama, laughs, cries and some shocks. The acting was excellent. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The acting in this series is excellent. Even though the subject matter is serious, the first three series have a much lighter tone to them. The last two get really serious. I like the fact that in each of series 4 and 5 they follow a major crime all the way through. It's a shame they didn't continue the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great family viewing, 4 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a shame the series is over. There is so little in the way of tv series for the whole family. This show had all the ingredients of good family drama: adventure, plot twists, well developed round characters, great acting, romance, an excellent cast and terrific sets. It also vehicled good moral values: friendship, family, trust, compassion and hope. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and spending the time watching it with family.
