Product Description

The plan was flawless... the job was executed perfectly... the escape was clean. The only threat mastermind thief Charlie Croker nev er saw coming was from a member of his own crew. After pulling off a gold bullion heist from a heavily guarded palazzo in Venice, It aly, Charlie and his gang can't believe it when one of them turns out to be a double-crosser. Enter Stella, a beautiful safecracker, who joins Charlie and his former gang when they follow the backstabber to California, where they plan to re-steal the gold by tappi ng into Los Angeles' traffic control system and creating the biggest traffic jam in L.A. history. During which, they will use tiny Mini Cooper autos, to get away on the the LA sidewalks!

From Amazon.co.uk

Though it bears little resemblance to the celebrated 1969 original starring Michael Caine, this 2003 remake of The Italian Job stands on its own as a caper comedy that's well above average. The title's a misnomer--this time it's actually a Los Angeles job--but the action's just as exciting as it propels a breezy tale of honour and dishonour among competing thieves. Inheriting Caine's role as ace heist-planner Charlie Croker, Mark Wahlberg plays straight-man to a well-cast team of accomplices, including Mos Def, Jason Statham and scene-stealer Seth Green in a variation of the role originally played by Noel Coward. As the daughter of Croker's ill-fated mentor (Donald Sutherland), Charlise Theron is recruited to double-cross a double-crosser (Edward Norton in oily villain mode), and once again, speedily versatile Mini Coopers (this time, the modern BMW versions) play a pivotal role in director F Gary Gray's exhilarating car-chase climax. It's perhaps the greatest product placement in movie history, and just as fun the second time around. --Jeff Shannon

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.

A lot of films are described (or describe themselves) as slick, stylish and cool, but this one is the blueprint.
The Italian Job is a lively crime caper, which is great to look at from start to finish. The engaging plot has a few twists and spanks along at a fair pace, with a pumping soundtrack to keep the tempo up. There is, of course, very little relation to the original film, but that is no great loss in my opinion.
The only real acting is done by Charlize Theron, who is terrific as usual, and adds true class to the proceedings. Otherwise there is plenty of posing, which is pleasing enough. Mark Wahlberg is a very watchable lead who oozes cool. But the real stars, as in the original film, are the Minis. The driving sequences are superb.

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!

I love the original italian job movie and so was wondering how they would approach a modern remake. Well i have to say that this is NOT the italian job. that is to say it is not a remake of the original film, it is simply inspired by the original in as much as minis are used and it copies the idea of a great plot and lots of action. Other than that, there is no similarity. The plots of both movies are entirely different, the charactors are completely different and this movie stands on its own two feet as a great family action movie.

I would urge you to buy this at the great price ive seen it for sale at, before the shops realise what a great movie this is and put their prices up! Seriously, get some pop corn, some friends or the whole family, pull up a sofa and settle in for the ride. Action, Laughs and a great story, what more could you want?

This film is supposedly a remake of the Michael Caine film of the same name. It is not, it uses the title of the original, some of the big set pieces, the gold heist, the armoured car, the getaway and let us not forget the Mini Coopers.
It does not however have the charm of the original, Mark Wahlberg does not have the same cheeky chappy persona that Michael Caine gave his Charlie Croker, but he gives a good performance nonetheless, as do all the other actors. Donald Sutherland steals every scene he is in, which is not many unfortunately.
This is an entertaining, glossy, well scripted, well acted romp. I do not think that it is really a remake though, the entire ethos of this film is different from the original. The original was a celebration of all things English (English not British, there is a difference)Noel Coward after all was the quintessential Englishman.
Even the ending is different, in the original the thieves lost the gold and were left hanging over a precipice, and all the gold was scattered down a mountain, never did crime pay less. In this new and revised version they do, eventually, get away with it, should crime pay just because we like the criminals?
That all said, this is worth watching, there is very little violence and no bad language, which makes a refreshing change, watch and enjoy, just do not expect a modern updating of the original, you will not find it here.
