Another version of The Bank Job. Well-made, intelligent. A lot of bungling and missteps by the bank robbers. The bank they rob has safe deposit boxes of the underworld and others who don't want the contents of their boxes revealed (including the royal family). MI5 and 6, plus bad guys make it hot for our bank robbers, who've stolen the box contents along with money and jewels.

The Bank Job review

Terry Leather (Jason Statham) was invited to rob a bank by Martine Love (Saffron Burrows). He puts a team together composing of a pornographic actor Dave Shilling (Daniel Mays), Eddie Burton (Michael Jibson), a mechanic named Bambas (Alki David), and con-man "Major" Guy Singer (James Faulkner). A British Royal member's scandalous photographs, Michael X (Peter de Jersey) and Lew Vogel (David Suchet) who keeps records of his police payoffs are involved. I felt the beginning ran a bit too long instead of going straight to the plot's points and the number of characters tend to be confusing. Soundtrack and acting were good and themes of loyalty, friendship and corruption were well presented. The Bank Job is a wonderful real life crime flick where the criminals were rewarded handsomely.

"The Bank Job" by Yojimbo

A London model is arrested for drugs trafficking by MI5 and blackmailed into arranging the robbery of a Bank vault to reclaim some embarrassing photographs used by a corrupt black activist to obtain immunity. I wish Jason Statham would stop trying to be the cockney Van-Damme because this is what he is really good at. One criticism you could instantly level at this film is that the plot is so far-fetched, but bizarrely it's actually a true story. At the beginning it appears to be a decent if slightly run-of-the-mill heist movie as the usual collection of lovable East End villains plan and execute their scam but it's actually after the event that this film gets really interesting. The tone darkens and as it gets more hard-boiled and grim, the better it gets. The direction can seem a little ...

Really Enjoyable

This is one of the best heist films to come out of recent years. Instead of being another polished caper movie like “The Italian Job” (which I liked a lot), this is more gritty and more realistic, which makes it that much more interesting. There were a lot of scenes where I found myself either nearly falling off the couch or biting my nails because the characters are always placed in some form of danger. I’m surprised by the pace of this picture: the actual bank robbery was already done fifty minutes into it; the real drama comes after the crime–which is a bold and quite brilliant strategy of storytelling. Each of the character that robbed the bank was featured in some way before the job so the audience got to know them at least a little bit so we care what would happen to them later on. ...
