Old habits die hard, especially when they involve cracking safes and living off the spoils instead of the dole. Or at least they do for the fun-loving criminals depicted in this British TV series that combines bank heists and humor by way of an uproarious ensemble cast and sharp dialogue.
Anthony Head and Warren Clarke play a pair of aging, big-hearted crooks in this action-packed comedic drama. Retired robbers and best mates Maurice and Syd return to Britain after 20 years on the lam. They're determined to stay on the straight and narrow, but despite their best intentions—and the vigilance of Maurice's wife (Jenny Agutter)—the lure of their old life proves too strong. But after years out of the game, they discover they can't crack safes like they used to. Filled with heists, hijinks, and humor about being over the hill, The Invisibles is pure fun.
