THE BANK JOB
Movie Review
Directed by Roger Donaldson
Starring Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows
by Eli Manning





SYNOPSIS:

A car dealer with a dodgy past and new family, Terry has always avoided major-league scams. But when Martine, 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.

REVIEW:

All the right elements are in place for your typical bank heist film: the plan, the heist itself and the fallout; your typical cast of characters: the leader with an edge who takes chances, the romantic tension with the token attractive girl who's also in on the heist, the galley of odd-jobbers the leader recruits, and the genuine villains (the heist guys aren't your 'typical' villains even though they are committing a major crime) that must be outwitted to survive.

I don't mind seeing a film like this where I can just turn off my brain and enjoy the ride --- but I think this genre has gone too far and has fallen off the edge. We've seen these films time after time in the last few years and I've had enough.

This isn't a bad movie as I was attentive throughout, but I can't say I really liked this film. Perhaps because this plot and these characters have been done to death -- and that's the problem -- this film doesn't give me anything that I haven't seen before.

The director and his team are a talented group, as is the group of actors assembled for this film -- BUT where is the originality. Just give us something new please!

That and the first act is a little too on the nose, as we've been given so much information, we know exactly what's going to happen in the second and third act. And they use the flashback technique which really isn't needed at all.

I think Movie Producers and Screenwriters think the audience isn't as smart as they are these days. We are a seasoned bunch and the generation going to a film like this have been raised on these movies.

Without a major star or a high advertising budget - The Bank Job needs to give us something we've never seen before - and it doesn't do that which is disheartening.

2 stars out of 4!
