'Diamond Heist'
(Vinnie Jones, Michael Madsen, et al / DVD / R / (2012) 2015 / Cinedigm)

Overview: When two dancers mysteriously disappear from outside his London club, Terence (Michael Madsen) a notorious diamond smuggler, needs to find some replacements fast. His old colleague and former diamond man Jack Varga (Vinnie Jones) offers up his own recruits, but Varga has ulterior motives.

DVD Verdict: I guess any movie that features both Vinnie Jones and Micheal Madsen has got to be B-movie greatness - doesn't it? Well, as much as 'Diamond Heist' will try and sway your opinion on that, more than slapstick once, it is still a highly watchable flick for a rainy Sunday afternoon shut in, that's for sure.

You see, when the world of male strippers and diamond smugglers collide the outcome is not what you'd expect! A comedy with European flair and gun-toting theatrics, 'Diamond Heist' (or as it was originally called back in 2012 when it was filmed, 'Magic Boys') is chock-full of action and unremitting twists and turns.

So, when these two male strippers mysteriously disappear from outside his London club, Terence (Michael Madsen), a gruff and notorious diamond smuggler needs to find a replacement fast. His old colleague and former diamond man Jack Varga (Vinnie Jones) comes to the rescue offering up his own recruits, but as is to be expected, Varga has ulterior motives.

Enter the two misfits, David (Csaba Pindroch) and Zoli (Gyözö Szabó) who have just lost their jobs at the champagne factory, now under the ownership of Jack Varga. Through a hapless series of events, David and Zoli find a handwritten contract employing the 'Magic Boys' for an irresistible sum of money. They arrive in London via private jet and soon realize the mess they've gotten themselves into: that the 'Magic Boys' are in fact male strippers!

Anyway, you can guess the rest from here, but it is funny that whenever I see Vinnie Jones and Michael Madsen in a movie I immediately expect a low budget film with a bad storyline. But as this was made by a Hungarian team, they actually came with something fresh - silly, sure, but it's most definitely worth a look; of that have no doubt.
