Veteran British director Roger Donaldson delivers a solid heist thriller in the aptly titled THE BANK JOB. Jason Statham's terse tough guy persona fits the movie's hardboiled style like a glove. Saffron Burrows is a sexy femme fatale and Statham's old flame who approaches him for a daring bank robbery. Based off a true story too.

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.

Cops and robbers movie

Finally once more a good movie .. one Iíve enjoyed. An entertaining cops-and-robbers movie. The fact that itís based on true facts makes it even more interesting. I had no idea the UK had such a corrupt police force in the 1970s and that there had been a sex scandal in the royal family with a cover-up operation as a result. If this film wasnít based on real facts, then it would be a totally implausible film with such coincidences.

First of all, youíll enjoy the acting of Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows. The rest of the cast is a colorful company ensuring that the whole film radiates that typical atmosphere of the 70s. Statham for once not in an action-filled film. At times it looked like an old James Bond movie. The story is well put together and entertaining till the end.

It wasn...

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 ...
