News & Interviews for The Italian Job
Critic Reviews for The Italian Job
This one offers some agreeably mindless fun in which the villains (including Norton) are truly villainous, the payback is satisfying in a purely infantile way, and the familiarity of everything is oddly comforting.
Itresembles a film made up on the fly. The cast, too, are strictly cut from comic books. Don't expect any unconventional endings either.
This unglamorous approach has the odd effect of making them seem more glamorous -- we're free to soak up their star quality because there's no hard sell to fight off.
A tricked-out remake of a heist flick that was already flat and formulaic in 1969.
Wide-open absurdity would've helped; instead, there's a clotting of musical interludes and a general air of stoic grit.
Audience Reviews for The Italian Job
This exhilarating action-packed movie is quite satisfying for what it intends to be: an exciting, fast-paced fun ride that benefits from a great dose of humor, a fine cast and the beauty of its locations, especially Venice.
Cool and slick, with a decent cast to deliver the goods, this heist caper is less about the steal than about the tension between the characters working the grab. The audience I saw it with audibly gasped when the twist showed up early on.
Fun and enjoyable.
