    Synopsis


    The Bank Job
    Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows star in director Roger Donaldson's cinematic account of the true-life 1971 London bank robbery that baffled the authorities and fascinated the public. Terry Leather (Statham) was a small-time car dealer who was trying to leave his shady past behind and start a family. Though he'd never been involved in any major crimes, he wasn't exactly on the straight and narrow his whole life either. Martine Love (Burrows) is a beautiful model from Terry's old neighborhood who knows that her former neighbor is no angel. When Martine proposes a foolproof plan to rob a Baker Street bank, Terry recognizes the danger but realizes this may be the opportunity of a lifetime. As the operation gets underway, the resourceful band of thieves burrows its way into a safe-deposit vault at the Lloyds Bank in Marylebone, quickly hitting a literal treasure trove of cash and priceless gems. But while the crew did know that the safe-deposit boxes contained millions in riches, they didn't realize that they also contained secrets that implicated everyone from London's most notorious underworld gangsters to powerful government figures, and even the Royal Family. Though the crime would make headlines all across Britain for several days after the fact, a government gag order eventually brought all reporting on the case to an immediate halt. Could it be that the most notorious bank robbers in recent memory were actually the most innocent people involved in this scandalous crime? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      The Back job is a good movie starring Jason Statham about a group of people robbing a bank. Its cool how the movei is based of a true story back in the 80's and how its sort of keeping you in making you want to know whats coming next. The first half of the movie isnt the most exciting but it really gets heated toward the end. Overall its smart thrilling film that i would recommmend to anyone that is old enough to watch the movie.

      This is a very good movie about a bank robbery that really happened. Jason Statham is good, as always, and I recommend this movie to anybody that enjoys action movies, as well as anybody who is a fan of Jason Statham, as this is a very good and exciting movie. The only downside is that it can get kind of confusing because of all the storylines.

      I really like true stories and knowing this one really happened. It had twists to it that surprised me. I thought Jason Statham was excellent. What they did in that bank robbery was bold and gutsy to pull off. I never thought it would end the way it did, excellent!

      Saw this on the big screen - I haven't seen Jason Statham in anything that I disliked. The movie has something to appeal to most audiances: how far would someone go for a friend, introduction of an 'old flame', drama, 'dirty' police officers, political scandal.

      Some variety for Jason S.

      Jason S. once again plays somewhat of a "bad" guy with a good heart as in the Transporter movies. But the storyline (which is based on actual events) is quite different from the Transporter flicks and I really enjoyed it.

      Let's be honest, Jason Statham stars in a lot of bad movies. The Bank Job, thankfully, isn't one of them. It's clever and full of twists and turns. I picked it up as a blind buy and really liked it.

      decent film

      Statham does another typical B movie performance. This movie anything special, but it's worth the watch if you have some free time. The plot is mildly engaging once you get past the English accents.
