How to Steal 2 Million
What it's about:

Five long years. That’s how long Jack spent in prison after getting pinched for robbery. His partner in crime and best friend, Twala, never got caught and Jack never talked. But, Twala proved as treacherous as Jack is honourable by marrying Jack’s former fiancée, Kim, during his prison term.

Upon being released, Jack decides to go straight. He wants to start a construction business, but, after being rejected for a loan, he must find a new source of capital. An opportunity presents itself when Twala suggests that they do a home invasion with a R 2-million take. The complication is that the mark is Twala’s father, Julius. In his search for a third partner, Jack comes across the tough, but sexy, Olive.

When the robbery goes wrong, secret double-crosses are revealed. Twala never intended to split the money with Jack and planned to kill him all along. As Julius edges closer to finding out who ripped him off and the pressure mounts on the three accomplices, the tension builds towards an explosive and surprising finale.

Set in Johannesburg’s opulent leafy suburbs, How To Steal 2 Million is a beautifully shot, slick and sexy urban tale featuring great performances from an exceptional cast.

What the local critics thought:

"At plot level, the script of How to Steal Two Million is a well-structured and fast-moving yarn; at the level of dialogue, though, it offers little that feels specifically South African." - Shaun de Waal, Mail & Guardian

"This crime caper moves fast and takes no prisoners and while the visual language is filmic, it’s also so totally, brilliantly South African." - Theresa Smith, IOL Tonight

"The film is firmly rooted in the film noir genre with its cynicism, hopelessness and business that always waits until sunset before it unravels. The local tone is attributed to excellent interpretation by Ngubane and Vundla, who makes the genre his own."  - Leatitia Pople, Die Burger




An ex-con decides to go straight after he's released from prison.
