"'The Lavender Hill Mob' is another comedy masterpiece from Ealing. Although it is less frequently mentioned than 'Kind Hearts and Coronets' or 'The Ladykillers', 'The Lavender Hill Mob' is every inch their equal. Fast-paced, concise, funny and thrilling, this brilliant little crime caper features a stunningly subtle central performance from Alec Guiness as a bored bank clerk who hatches a plan to steal a fortune. Also excellent is Stanley Holloway as his more verbose accomplice. Like many Britis"

"28.1. DVD Tämä olikin sitten parempi kuin odotin. Valitsin tämän kirjastosta, koska huomasin tässä yhtenä päivänä IMDb:ä selaillessani, että Audrey Hepburn on tässä pienessä sivuroolissa. Indeed. Hepburnin ruutuaika oli noin 10 sekuntia, mutta se ei lopulta haitannut, sillä Alec Guinness oli tuttuun tapaansa loistava ja muutenkin poikain ryöstösähellykset varsin viihdyttävää brittikomediaa."

"29.7.2009, DVD Kuten Kind Hearts and Coronets, on tämäkin brittikomedian parasta eliittiä (Pythonien ohella toki), aivan KH&C:n mykistävään nerokkuuteen ei tosin ylletä, ja sitäpaitsi tämä on enemmänkin sellaista ääneen naurattavaa kamaa, toisin kuin edellämainittu. Monia huippuhetkiä löytyy, joista itse diggailin eniten suht. kuuluisaa Eiffel-tornin porrasjuoksua, lopun poliisiautosekoilua sekä ihan viimeistä pikkujuttua. Viimeistään nyt Alec Guinness todistaa olevansa pait"
