The Bank Job
We all enjoy a good heist, particularly at the expense of the "rich", don't we? This is a terrific Bank Job based on an early '70's robbery. This robbery involved safe deposit boxes, and some of the secrets contained within. Pretty a propos considering that Spitzer cat in NY, n'est-ce pas?
Highly entertaining, well shot, briskly paced. Did I mention based on a true story? It is the Stander of 2008. Go ahead, enjoy the show that "Fun with Dick and Jane" should have been the second time around!
Some may argue that my love of "Crank" (the film kids) has distorted my judgement in re Jason Stratham -- far from the case, let me be the first to reassure thee..
