Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is not the action=heavy type of film that fans of star Jason Statham are used to but a smart, suspenseful heist thriller. As such, the target audience is a little older and more sophisticated than his traditional following.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good When this movie ends, the viewer feels as if he has seen an entire tale unfold rather than merely having been granted the chance to peer through a window at the inner workings of an infamous historical crime. The Bank Job is smart, well-paced, exciting entertainment for adults - something that is more of a rarity than it should be.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average A serviceable B-grade British heist movie, "The Bank Job” is no worse than its generic title. And no better. It front-loads the naughty sex and back-loads the plot twists (the titular crime takes place in the middle), but apart from the prominence of Princess Margaret in the subterfuge, it's a pretty routine job, as the use of the hackneyed phrase "plot twists” earlier in this sentence should indicate.

USA Today Full Review
Good Imagine a blend of Snatch, Ocean's 11 and The Italian Job. Then juxtapose the staples of the caper genre with real events involving national security and high-level corruption, and the result is The Bank Job. Well-paced, smartly told and unpretentious, this solid British heist thriller also has moments of invention and imagination.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 80 moviegoers:
TEENS: The males loved it. The two females weren't impressed.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Over half of the males rated it very high and the rest rated it average and below average. Recommended. The two ladies didn't enjoy "The Bank Job" very much.
ADULTS: The male reviews are very good but not quite great. The problem is that there are too few very high reviews and too many mediocre reviews. Still, I believe most men will certainly enjoy "The Bank Job" so I have no problem recommending it. The female reviews are even higher. Just a small percentage of them were somewhat disappointed so I also recommend it for the ladies.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A car dealer with a dodgy past and new family, Terry (Statham) has always avoided major-league scams. But when Martine (Burrows), a beautiful model from his old neighborhood, offers him a lead on a foolproof bank hit on London's Baker Street, Terry recognizes the opportunity of a lifetime. Martine targets a roomful of safe deposit boxes worth millions in cash and jewelry. But Terry and his crew don't realize the boxes also contain a treasure trove of dirty secrets - secrets that will thrust them into a deadly web of corruption and illicit scandal that spans London's criminal underworld, the highest echelons of the British government, and the Royal Family itself...the true story of a heist gone wrong...in all the right ways.
