Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Daylight Robbery...the exact expression that you're likely to utter if you pay for a ticket to see this utter garbage."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Tonally it stumbles between laddish laughs and straight thrills, with the result that Leonti doesn't quite get away with it."
‑ Josh Winning, Total Film
"Daylight Robbery has the away day, the-sun-shines-outside-of-Walford feel of an Enders special. All told, a bit of a Regi Blinker."
‑ Cath Clarke, Guardian
"While nicely acted and never less than watchable, Daylight Robbery is ultimately disappointing thanks to unsympathetic characters, some dodgy direction and a stifling lack of tension."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Tonally askew, comedically misjudged and drearily thuggish, this can be filed with any number of post-Lock, Stock caper comedies where psychopaths are portrayed as lovable geezers."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"It makes Guy Ritchie look like Godard."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
"This small-budget heist movie, though hardly very original, is at least made with complete professionalism."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Imagine a sort of Dog's Dinner Afternoon."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"A promising idea is let down by weak storytelling in this well-played but lacklustre Brit crime thriller."
‑ Saxon Bullock, Film4
