... a terrific piece of heist filmmaking made with a rough-and-tumble attitude and old-school professionalism.

The Bank Job delivers much more than it's title claims.

The Bank Job is an often suspenseful and sleek crime movie which shows how a group of working class slumps exposed the scandalous nature of the rich, as both spooks and crims bay for their blood.

As some characters brazenly assert colonial imperatives, race and class commentary abound and "The Bank Job" eventually takes a vividly violent turn. But its subtext of history's long con doesn't keep the film from hitting great-heist high points.

The Bank Job is not just another slick caper film. It's robust, messy, cluttered, and a cut well above the average crime job.

Es como una película de Guy Ritchie pero sin toda esa parafernalia y sobre estetización que son su marca de fábrica.

It isn't bad, but it can't find a rhythm between being based on a true, ugly story and trying to be a fun bank heist film.

Despite the name of the movie, this is not the typical mindless action b-movie that Jason Statham specializes in. It is much more an exploration of British corruption, sexual and otherwise, at the highest levels of 1960s British society. Not a great movie

Jason Statham sports enough stubble to scrape the metal off a gun. Not that he'd want to do so in this slight, silly heist movie, which turns out to be plenty of fun.

... by turns funny and suspenseful, and just a tad trashy in its speculations.

Blazing with the ring of truth, The Bank Job is a tense and involving caper movie with more than the usual layers: a genuine Royal scandal.

The best thing about this caper whose elements include a royal scandal, exotic locations, MI5 involvement, a brothel with a clientele from high places, corrupt cops, romance and a heist by a bunch of small-time crooks, is that it is based on fact.

THE BANK JOB is like a good movie trapped under ice. You can see it wants to be good on the surface, but just can't seem bust through.

A real, honest-to-goodness throwback to the golden age of caper flicks.

Statham é um ator carismático e a história, baseada em incidentes reais e mergulhada em clima conspiratório, prende a atenção. Ainda assim, a resolução é frouxa e maniqueísta demais, sabotando o projeto.

Donaldson spins an intricate web of toxic layers of elaborate subterfuge and deceit that keeps both the thieves and audience on their collective toes.

When the (supposedly) true story that this film is based upon was finally revealed, it isn't hard to imagine waiting over 30 years to make it...
