The Italian Job 2003 August 22, 2006

Posted by Shujath in English, Movies, Reviews.

This is a remake of a very old movie with the same name….Starring Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton, Jason Statham, Seth Green and Charlize Theron, this is a very entertaining con movie about a group of people trying to extract revenge from their former partner who betrayed them. I really found the character played by Seth Green – who calls himself Napster – very hilarious.

Cool action sequences (especially toward the climax involving the traffic signals), good humor sprinkled in between and a dependable cast make this an enjoyable joyride. Check this out if you are looking for two hours of fun


1. Sai - August 22, 2006

I enjoyed this film thoroughly. The primary ingredient for a successful heist movie is exciting and ingenious heist sequences. This one totally delivers in that area. Though there aren’t too many, the ones that are present are excellent in terms of thought as well as execution. It follows the formula and follows it well. This one has the interesting characters, quick pace, enthralling action and humor that are expected in this genre. The basic revenge theme is kind of cliched but this is not a movie where you want to engage your brain too much. This is one where you sit back, munch on the popcorn, sip on your Coke and enjoy. Gary Gray delivers a really stylish flick that entertains throughout its running time of 111 minutes (not too long, not too short). If you enjoy heist movies, don’t miss this one. A sequel called The Brazilian Job is in the offing and I am eagerly waiting.
