  1. One of the pleasures of The Bank Job is that it returns us to the days when robbing a bank was a gritty, hole-in-the-wall affair.

    The gritty heist picture The Bank Job has everything adult action fans could want, starting with a grand, fact-inspired gimmick.

    The Bank Job cashes in.
    The movie starts at a good pace and continues without letting up. A solid telling of a true story. Statham continues
    to entertain with his gritty intensity and likeability. Full Review »

    You'd think that a Jason Statham film about a bank robbery can only mean one thing: cliché Hollywood tricks, comical action and no story or organisation. However, The Bank Job is the complete opposite. The focus is on the main character as well as the crucial moments of the robbery itself. It's not one of those films which spends only 2 minutes on the bit that actually matters. Aside from this, there is a lot more going on at any given point, and everything that happens has a purpose and its own story behind it. If you want a break from mindless action films, you should definitely give this one a go. Full Review »

    This movie based on a real story is well directed, silent, fast paced, suspense thriller. I watch it again and again and never get bored. Very entertaining!!! Full Review »
