Thank you. I read the wiki link you gave me, but don't see any liquefaction/liquefying going on.
Does that take place ?


Yeah. Paragraphs 5 to 7 of the Plot section talks about the melting and what they do with it. I don't want to spoil too much for other people, but this could be what you're talking about. Check out the trailer on youtube.

thank you. I don't think this is the film (but will watch it one day). I have to admit though, that it is pretty close: It has a similar feel/atmosphere and is almost eligible as far as its release year is concerned. But I'm quite sure I saw the film in a movie theatre somewhere between 1990-1999. Everything thereafter is almost certainly too late.

Interesting. Please let me know after you watch it, because I'm curious to see if it ends up being the right one!

I will, as soon as I can get hold of the film. I have rewatched the trailer a dozen times though, and there is literally nothing sticking out as familiar to me. I'm almost certain I have never seen that film.

Any other ideas in the meanwhile ?

Is there really no Batman movie with this plot element? That was my first hunch.

Actually I think I can explain that. I think the movie is just extraordinarily forgettable. A couple years ago, I was trying to remember what it was called too, and the only thing I could remember was the gold bars on the vehicle to hide the gold. Eventually I found it somehow, despite not recognizing it at all when watching the trailer multiple times. Even now when I watch the trailer, nothing about it seems familiar. When I read the plot summary on wikipedia or wherever, nothing about that is familiar either. Basically the only thing I remember in even the slightest way is hiding the gold in the bars on a vehicle of some kind. It's just one of those movies you forget everything about.

I can't think of any other movie that fits your description. I don't think it fits any recent Batman movie. Not sure about pre-Nolan.

sorry it was a good idea, but I'm sure I've never seen this film.
Besides, it's too recent and seems to lack liquefied gold, which is a non-starter.

coming to think of it, I don't think it would even be possible to pump liquid gold into a fire truck, chemically speaking, since liquid gold would be too hot for that ...

... although that doesn't always stop films from going ahead with such a plot element ... :)

If it wasn't liquid gold, then maybe it was something else of value (diamonds, or thousands of small gold particles) which was pumped into the firetruck along with the water.
