September 4, 2019
What The Italian Job has to revive the viewer of the drowsy first 70 minutes is a whopping good third-act mini-car chase, one which will inevitably compared to the daredevil hill vaulting of Bullitt.

The brio and ambition of The Italian Job can't be doubted and Caine has enormous charisma...

Caine and Coward play a splendid game of verbal tennis, but by the final reel the laughs are lost in an anthology of dull and deafening car chases.

The cast does its stuff to good effect. Coward, as the highly patriotic, business-like master crook, brings all his imperturbable sense of irony and comedy to his role.

As a modest fun movie, it works, much helped by deep casting contrasts and a nice sense of absurd proportions.

The film is technically sophisticated and emotionally retarded.
