Product Description

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 --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.

Having seen the first famous version I was wondering what this would be like. However it would really be wrong to compare them as the storyline is different although they are some references made to the first film (gold and mini coopers!) It has a great leading cast and Mark Wharlberg gives a nice slightly understated performance alongside Charlize Theron. It starts off in Venice so straightaway I loved it! Later it moves to USA where more clever planning takes place. Lots of action with great car chases and amazing driving techniques. The minis still look cool.

I would recommend this film

This film is a rubbish yanks version of the original 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, I downloaded this from sky, and had great pleasure in deleting it.

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.

Like most viewers, I'm not a big fan of remakes as most second versions are a pointless and inferior modern re-telling of a period piece classic. The makers of The Italian Job were clearly aware of the pitfalls and handled them much better than most in that there are very few similarities between their film and the classic Michael Caine / Noel Coward romp. There is a thrilling climactic escape in Mini's and similar names to the lead characters but that's about all. What we have instead is an excellent slick modern heist thriller.

Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg) and his gang pull off an intricate robbery only for one of the gang Steve (Edward Norton) to turn traitor and hold up the others for the loot. Charlie's spiritual father, the veteran safecracker John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) is killed in the melee. Cue forward a year and Charlie and the others reconvene to plan their revenge. To help them, they have recruited Bridger's real daughter Stella (Charlize Theron), who has inherited her father's talents, though has previously used them for non-criminal means.

The viewer finds him/herself routing for these likeable "moral criminals" as they hatch a complex heist to rob the treacherous Steve who is deliciously played by Norton. The characters are well defined and played excellently in this superb film which proves that remakes can be remodelled successfully whilst staying true to the original picture.

This is not remake....
It is entirely its own film, the makers however pay homage to the "original" in all the best ways. The minis are still the stars of the show as the getaway vehicles and the Lead character, is Charlie croker as before.The cast has some big names as well as unknowns but is so well balanced and acted that all performances are top rate.
It is a fast paced monster of a movie centred around a heist following a double cross of the worst kind.
Don't miss it.

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

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.
