stands the test of time surprisingly well. great cast, lots of great scenes. pretty exciting and fast paced. ed norton is a GOAT. well put together story and generally well made movie. (note: i was struggling to stay awake at the end because i started it late, i'm pretty sure about the 4.0 rating but might be a 3.5)

This is the movie I go to when I'm feeling nostalgic. Mark Wahlberg and Charleze Theron both bring a great chemistry to the film, and Seth Green's jokes throughout the movie make this a classic tale of comedy and revenge! This movie made me want to own a Mini Cooper!

The Italian Job isn't a masterpiece, but it gets the job done.

The Italian Job failed to make me care about its characters and turns into a standard heist film.

The Italian Job does exactly what it was made to do and that is entertain you. This is by no means going to win any Oscar's, but I can promise you will have tons of fun watching this movie. F. Gary Gray delivers on this action packed heist film. All the performances are great and have heart to them. Lots of laughs to be had with this film. Italian Job is a perfect movie to sit back and relax after a long day. I definitely recommend this film.

This one is a flick that I have enjoyed quite a bit, but have only seen twice now, and I have to say, it's a good bit of fun for some early 2000s action fare. Featuring a diverse group of leads, we get to see some criminals go after payback on their former partner who betrayed them, and it's a helluva ride.

It was ok. It had a great cast and a fun plot. Was very predictable and the twists at the beginning was obvious. Still a enjoyable movie but nothing immensely unique.

Great heist film. Uneven in some parts, but still excellent nonetheless. The cast is top notch, the location is gorgeous and the action is thrilling. Ed Norton gives a one of a kind performance, similar to Steve Buscemi. In some ways, this is a lot like other action and heist films, but it has a one of a kind cast, and therefore, a one of a kind story.

The Italian job is a 2003 remake of the original film from 1969 that starred Michael caine. Set in LA Mark Wahlberg stars as Charlie Croker the leader of a crew that includes Handsome rob, Lyle, Left ear, Steve and John Bridger the main head of the crew. After a successful Italian job Steve betrays the group taking the gold they stole and presummingly killing the whole crew. The crew survives and decides to lay low until the time is right. A year later Charlie puts into action a plan he has been working and enlists the help of John's daughter stella to help them steal back what was taken from then.
very smooth and slick. F Gary Grey provides a really fun atmosphere and style of movie here with his directing this is like one of the standards in todays heist pictures. Its so well crafted. The opening scene was excellently designed and well directed. the mini coopers are like an extra set of characters. the usage of them was perfect and the choregraphy with the races was great.
Great acting here from the cast. we sort of see the origins of the cool, smooth brotha that Mark Wahlberg began to play around this time and sometimes does to this day. He gave a pretty great performance. Even here Charlize Theron can always hold her own in male dominated world in movies and she has great chemistry with all the guys especially Wahlberg. I liked Edward Norton in here he played a pretty by the book villain who's motivation was pure jealousy. Kind of throwback and cool to see compared to the villians of today. Mos def and seth green were great as the comedic characters in this film. Mos def's hit on a lot of jokes in here but he also has a real calmness and poise when acting and it oozes off camera so well. this is rare to see Statham in a role where he has to rely more on his swagger and smoothness than his physical prowesses. he does very well here nonetheless
I quite enjoyed the Italian Job! check it out when you can

Really good heist movie with a great cast as well. It's exactly what you'd expect but you can still smile while seeing it unfold.
