A 10 minute silent black and white film! Ok then
Scene starts in a ticket office where its being robbed
STICK ‘EM UP ITS A ROBBERY
EVEN THOUGH HES DEAD LETS GAG HIM ANYWAY
A train pulls at a tower for water
The thiefs board the train while stopped
WE’RE NINJAS
Inside we see a man moving things before being shot
The thiefs try opening a box with explosives and make off with the goods
One of the thiefs then comondears the tran
Another thief has a fight
FIGHT!!!
The thief just throws the train conductant off the train – It’s looks a lot like a dummy
YOU!! DO AS WE SAY!
They unattach the train from the carriages and leave one of the thiefs with the passengers
How can one thief handle 100 people?
One of the passengers trys to run for it but gets shot
The thiefs then steal from all the passengers
Ok, there’s three thiefs
Everyone check on the dead man
The thiefs board the train and escape with the goods
CHOO CHOO
Why am I think about Ivor the Engine when watching this
The thiefs then leave the train and dead for a river
They have horses waiting for them
Back in the ticket office
A small girl frees the train conductant then prays
It’s a black and white film with hints of colour? There’s purple and yellow
DANCE-OFF!!!
The police were dancing while the train was being robbed
They caught up to the thiefs very quickly
The thiefs empty the goods on the floor before get killed by the police
The thiefs stole the paper
The film ends with the audience (YOU) being shot by a thief

THE END
