    Default The Bank Job

    This just got released on DVD and Blu-Ray.



    http://www.thebankjobmovie.com/

    Plot:

    Business is slow for Terry Leather, a London car dealer, married with children. He's an artful dodger, so Martine, a former model with a thing for him, brings him her scheme: a bank's alarm is off for a couple weeks, so let's tunnel into the vault. He assembles a team, not realizing her real goal is a safe-deposit box with compromising photos of a royal: she needs the photos to trade for avoiding a jail sentence - and M-5, or is it M-6, is pulling the strings two steps removed. A Trinidadian thug, a high-end bordello owner, and a pornographer also have things stored in the vault, so the break-in threatens many a powerful personage. Is there any way these amateurs can pull it off?










    It wasn't what I expected, because I expected an action movie but it was good nonetheless.

    Woody Allen used the same idea in ''Small Time Crooks'' (2000) but this movie is based on a real story and Woody Allen's movie wasn't.

    Same for me.

    When I noticed Jason Statham was in it I thought it was an action flick.

    British comedy, atleast the shows they broadcast over here, kind of ruined everything for me (shit's wack) but I've seen a few good British movies the past week.

    I know, just saying I wasn't a fan of British television but these movies changed my mind.

    it's hard for me to sit through any movie that has a majority of the people speaking with that british accent no disrespect intended but it's aggravating to me

    I saw the preview [or whatever it's called] before it was released in the cinema. I wasn't a big fan of the acting but the fact that it's based on a true story and seeing what they done in real life was brilliant

    the crew is a boring attempt at a british gangster film. i dont know why that scouse from snatch agreed to do that.
