movie review by David Blackwell

PLOT: Martine offers Terry a lead on a foolproof bank hit on London's Baker Street. She 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.

ANALAYSIS:
THE BANK JOB is a fun heist film. It mixes great characters with history. Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows shine in this film. The team of likeable crooks lead Statham are a likeable bunch. Jason Staham shows he can act and Saffron Burrows is always a pleasure to see in any film. It is interetsing to watch this true story about the theft of incrimating photos of a British princess being made. The character development pays off. The robebry leads to a very engrossing chain of events. The theft of material from the safety desposit boxes at the Llyods Of London bank uncovers more than one thing (including incriminating photos of government types in a brothel and a ledger kept by a porn producer who lists all of the police pay offs). THE BANK JOB is sure to rent well on DVD and yhave a long life as it is discovered by more and more people.
