4.5 out of 10 Surprisingly fab! What a cracker!
Deirdre from Dublin, 16 Jul 2009
Just watched the Bank Job and it has been a while since a movie has made me feel completly, starter, main course, dessert satisfied at the end of almost two hours of viewing. Can't recommend this enough. What a cracker! Again, hadn't heard anything about this movie so didn't know what to expect but really enjoyed every minute of it. Acting terrific, loved how it depicts the times that were and the story based on true facts makes the icing on the cake. Loved it Loved it Loved it!

4.5 out of 10 Top Movie
Mark from Dublin, 22 Jul 2009
Really really loved this it was a great story and kept me captivated for the duration, not a bug Jason Statham fan but he was pretty good in this. Cant see why this seemed to bypass the cinema but you wont be disappointed with the bank job made all the better as it is based on a true story just makes you wonder about the who was in the alleged photoshoot!!

4 out of 10 'The Bank Job'
Donal from Waterford, 14 Oct 2008
Enjoyable crime caper film that seemed to be passed over in the cinema. A group of small time retired hoods are hired to rob the vault of a London bank, taking not only money, but incriminating photographs that some people will kill to have. Set in the 1971 it captures the atmosphere of the times very well.

3.5 out of 10 not bad
wendy from Cavan, 30 Jul 2008
this is an entertaining enough movie.it's no epic but it's pretty enjoyable.it moves at a fast enough pace to prevent you getting bored.david suchet is as good as always and jason stratham is the usual eye-candy for the girls.i'd say rent and watch it when you don't want anything too heavy.

3.5 out of 10 The Bank Job
James from Limerick, 13 Nov 2008
Absorbing drama about bunch of bank-robbers who get more than they bargained for when they steal from a London safety deposit vault. Period detail convincing, very good cast all on their game, and a nice come-uppance story-arc. Based on a true story apparently. If you liked "Life on Mars"...

What's it about....
In September 1971, thieves tunnelled into the vault of a bank in London‘s Baker Street and looted safe deposit boxes of cash and jewellery worth millions and millions of pounds. None of it was recovered. Nobody was ever arrested. The robbery made headlines for a few days and then disappeared – the result of a UK Government ‘D‘ Notice, gagging the press. This film reveals what was hidden in those boxes. The story involves murder, corruption and a sex scandal with links to...
