Back in Business is a 2007 action-comedy film directed by Chris Munro and starring Martin Kemp, Chris Barrie, and Dennis Waterman. The movie follows the story of retired gangsters who reunite for one last mission. The film is set in London, where a group of retired gangsters is living a peaceful life in the suburbs. One day, they receive a call from one of their old accomplices, who lures them into a new heist.

Martin Kemp plays the role of retired gangster, Pat Tate, who is leading a peaceful life with his wife and son. Chris Barrie plays the role of Johnny, a former hitman, who is now working as a used car salesman. Dennis Waterman plays the role of Alfie, who is now running a pub. All three actors deliver powerful performances, bringing to life a trio of characters who have one last adventure up their sleeves.

The plot of the movie starts with the arrival of an old friend, Harry, who presents the trio with a seemingly irresistible offer- to rob a truck full of expensive antiques. Harry is a lovable rogue, who's always up to something. He is played by Adam Deacon, who brings a contagious energy to the screen in his portrayal of the character. The trio is initially skeptical of the offer, given their lives of retirement from crime. However, the temptation of the prize and the thrill of the heist prove too much, and they decide to go for it.

As the plot thickens, we see the trio planning the heist in meticulous detail. They recruit a few other old-timers like themselves to help them pull off the heist. Along the way, the group encounters all manner of problems and obstacles, making the mission more complex than they ever expected.

The movie is notable for its portrayal of the challenge that comes naturally with aging characters trying to pull off a heist. The cast does an excellent job of creating believable characters that are both funny and relatable. The film seamlessly combines comedy with action to create a fun-filled, tense atmosphere.

The heist itself is not particularly groundbreaking, but the way the characters interact with each other and the world around them makes it an enjoyable experience. The film's director, Chris Munro, does an excellent job of pacing, never letting the story drag, even during the quieter moments.

Another notable aspect of the movie is its accurate portrayal of London's suburbs. The streets feel real, and the cinematography immerses the viewer in this authentic environment. The film's music also adds to the atmosphere, creating a suspenseful feeling.

Overall, Back in Business is an enjoyable film that will leave viewers satisfied. The mixture of humor and action is well balanced, and the film is a great example of a heist movie. The movie is worth watching, particularly for fans of gangster flicks or those who enjoy seeing older characters become action heroes. The film's cast is pleasing, and the storyline is captivating from the start until the end.
