It's not the best heist flick, but it's fast, gritty, tense and includes a toffee-nosed British politician with a poncy accent putting on pink undies and an S&M collar while being beaten by hookers.

A tall tale like this one needed to be sprightlier and cheekier; what we get is boring competence.

Unlike the many heist movies obsessed with high-tech gadgetry and beyond-human stunts, The Bank Job, in more ways than one, gets down and dirty.

There may not be much to take home from The Bank Job, but it's a solid evening's entertainment, which is not so common these days.

This film is full of action and actual suspense. The wit of the story is not always obvious when watching the film, but does come out in retrospect.

The sagging heist section so smacks of the ordinary that the overall film never achieves the greatness its individual components promise.
