Italian Job ending rewrite

One of my all-time favourite Britflicks is the original production of The Italian Job starring Michael Caine. It's a great film although today's audiences, addicted to fast action and less plot development, might not enjoy it as much as the recent remake.

The Royal Society of Chemistry issued a challenge to provide a suitable ending to the (quite literally) "cliffhanger" ending of the original film.

Here's the shortlist of solutions offered by armchair science fans. The winning solution will be announced this coming Friday.

For those of you who have never seen the original, I highly recommend it. It's more humourous and arguably a much better film than the remake.
