Format: DVD
Lacking the style and heart that made the original such a firm favorite among film fans and also without the talents of Noel Coward - who gave such a nicely humorous touch to the classic - was this weak 2003 remake.
In truth this movie is more of a sequel than a remake. As most film fans will know the original movie concluded with the gang of bullion thieves stuck in a rather precarious situation atop one of the Italian Alps. The remake however includes the actual "Italian Job" of the title at the beginning of its movie and then weaves a tale of betrayal and payback that has one of the thieves double-crossing his partners and taking off with the gold himself.
In this respect the movie probably would have been better off not adopting the name of its illustrious predecessor. In fact, in talks with the director to promote this movie, it was revealed that Italian authorities were less than happy to hear that Hollywood planned to remake a movie - that is such a "national treasure" in the hearts of Italy - that they almost refused the team to film in Venice. Only when they were able to convince the Italians that it was a homage and that they intended no disrespect to the original that they were allowed to continue.
Fans of another remake (Ocean's Eleven) will no doubt lap this movie up. This production has another hip cast and the same slick method of storytelling. It was pleasing to see the return of the Morris Minor car as one of the holdovers from the original movie and I thought Charlize Theron was a welcome addition to the cast as the beautiful daughter of one of the original thieves.

Nothing like the original. It lacks a lot. Michael Cain is much better in the original. This one doesn't match up at all. The music is totally different and doesn't come at the right time. I don't like Charlene Theron being in it. There wasn't a female in the first one, so I don't know why they have changed that. Mark Whalberg as Croker is ridiculous.

Format: DVD
John Bridger's gang of thieves are double crossed and left for dead after a daring gold raid in Venice. The surviving members regroup and convene in L.A. to enact revenge and recapture their gold.......the job is on!

This could have been a complete disaster, I'm British and the wave of revulsion that boomed in my homeland upon hearing of this remake was explosive; "how dare they remake a British institution" was the cry. Things were not helped in the run up to the film's release by it's main star {and drawing card} Edward Norton, proclaiming that the film was a contractual obligation and that fans of his work would be better advised to give The Italian Job a miss!

Had to be a stinker then surely? Actually no it isn't. Director F. Gary Gray hasn't remade the Italian Job of 1969, in fact he hasn't even re-imaged it, the minis are in there, the gold is in there, but all the stand out moments so beloved by many in the 69 film of the same name are not to be seen at all. So what we get is a very cool heist-come revenge movie-that's maybe a tad too glossy at times, but it's got a pretty sharp script, tight action sequences and a group of actors working very well as a team. Mark Wahlberg, Mos Def, Jason Statham, Seth Green and the delectably delicious Charlize Theron all come out smelling of roses, whilst Edward Norton really had no cause for concern because his portrayal as Steve is a smarmy delight.

I have jokingly titled this film Ocean's 5, but that is in no way detrimental to The Italian Job, it lacks the jazzy coolness of Soderbergh's Ocean's 11, but its a fun and enjoyable picture all in its own right, its rating of just under 7 here on IMDb is actually spot on. 7/10

This film is a rubbish yanks version of a British iconic film, for me this film was a disgrace and should never have been made, why do they have to make it so over the top? it's as if they have to do this to make the American public watch, the only positive thing I can say is, I downloaded it from sky, and had great pleasure in deleting it.

So, a job set in Italy? Hence The Italian Job? No. Utterly charmless, set in the USA, no humour etc etc. everyone remembers "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off". Cannot remember anything from this rubbish. Only called The Italian Job to trick us into going to see it.

Not much more to say really. Lacks all the charm of the original and near unwatchable for me! I wouldn't recommend at all.

For all the fans of the original Italian job who think that this isn't going to be very good. I assure you that you are wrong. When i first saw this version i was skeptical because i believed that it was just a re-run of the original, but when you watch it, it is a completely different film. The main links between the old and new version is that they both have mini's and in the new one it makes a reference it 'do it like the italian job'.
I now love both films because you can't make a straight comparison between them both and say one is better than the other. If you are debating whether to buy this or not i would say it is totally worth it!
