Not very exciting. not too intriguing either. Even if it was based on a true story, this film sucked.

Solid film, good acting, great story. Didn't understand all of the British slang, but the basic message was comprehensible. I was surprised by the amount of nudity, the film definately earned its R rating. Very entertaining.

Decent film, good story but could have been improved very easily with some changes to the script and some terrible supporting cast roles, particularly those of Stathams 2 "sidekicks". It also seemed far too easy to break into the bank, like Decent film, good story but could have been improved very easily with some changes to the script and some terrible supporting cast roles, particularly those of Stathams 2 "sidekicks". It also seemed far too easy to break into the bank, like anyone could have done it. Some aspects of the story weren't made clear either. You get the feeling a bigger budget would have made it go a lot further. Expand

I thought this was going to be like Lock Stock after watching the characters introduce and the plot was set up, but the film turns a bit dark and tries to be a more like a thriller, I was expecting comedy punchlines!

The Bank Job is a well made, well acted bank heist thriller. It interweaves all of the facets of the real life heist and the rocks it turned over very well and that made this one quite a compelling watch. However, the main positive in thisThe Bank Job is a well made, well acted bank heist thriller. It interweaves all of the facets of the real life heist and the rocks it turned over very well and that made this one quite a compelling watch. However, the main positive in this one is the fact that it's based on a true story. Without it, a lot of this one would have been far less compelling to watch unfold. The whole heist and everything surrounding it was quite thrilling and, as I said, it was well directed and well acted, however, the non-heist portions and non-controversial parts, kind of fell flat. The amount of webs it weaves is entirely worth watching this one though, because it does quite well. It introduces many scenarios that could overwhelm, yet finds a way to keep its wits about it and not overwhelm its viewers. Overall, The Bank Job is an average bank heist thriller that thrives due to the fact it's based on a true story and it manages to take all of the portions of that truth and add them together nicely.
