A car dealer with a dodgy past and new family, Terry (Statham) has always avoided major-league scams. But when Martine (Burrows), a beautiful model from his old neighborhood, offers him a lead on a foolproof bank hit on London's Baker Street, Terry recognizes the opportunity of a lifetime. Martine 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 that spans London's criminal underworld, the highest echelons of the British government, and the Royal Family itself...

I get that I am not the natural audience for this film. I watched it because it has around twenty different names and faces that I recognize, among them David Suchet and Daniel Mays. It was written by two men who are old school television writers from the early 70s. So it was interesting as an artifact.

Loaded with misogyny and some nasty, sadistic violence. Not for the sensitive or enlightened, or lovers of good drama. Not even good as a heist film. For that see Sexy Beast.

Very enjoyable fact-based politically-motivated heist-flick, however romanticized the truth may have been. Princess Margaret you naughty rascal you...

I expected this to be terrible, but it was actually pretty well done. I was sufficiently intrigued to look into the fascinating true story that it is based upon. One thing that drove me nuts is that the robbers in the film left their fingerprints all over the vault -- duh!

Watchable (Fair) - Bank Job, The (2008) **½ 111 min. starring Jason Stratham – Well-meaning bank heist film never really takes off. The story is based on the true to life Baker Street bank robbery of 1971. Terry Leather (Jason Stratham) is called to lead a team in an intricate bank robbery focusing on the safety deposit boxes, where unbeknownst to him, dirty secrets about the royal family lie. The film is ho-hum for most of the way until the last 20 minutes when the action gets going. The problem with this film is that though the characters were based on real people, not many of them had any real personality either.
