The Great Train Robbery

Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland star in this Michael Crichton picture as partners in the 19th century who team up to attempt one of the most daring thefts in history: to steal a mother load of gold bars in a safe within a train. The gold's so hard to steal because four keys (that are hidden by trusted employees) are needed to open it with. The money must be stolen while the train is moving and there is no easy way in or out because the doors are locked. How can they do it? An enjoyable heist romp made fun by the presence of Connery and Sutherland.
