Review

Student credit card scammers Sam (Speleers) and Fordy (Poulter) make a nice line in petty deception, cloning plastic and stockpiling a shed-load of dubiously-acquired iPads, jeans and laptops.

However, they find themselves out of their depth when partners-in-crime Rafa (De Souza) and Yatesey (Allen) make the mistake of robbing a hooker's john they've set up for blackmail in the back of his beamer.

The tablet computer they make off with belongs to major league thug Marcel (Kretschmann), a crime boss who quickly tracks them down and gives all four of them two weeks to come back with £2m.

Ever resourceful Sam hits on the idea of relocating to Miami to relieve high-rollers of their moolah and persuades credit card clerk Frankie (Rigby) to perform an inside job on the company's more lucrative marks.
