After being betrayed and left for dead in Italy, Charlie Croker and his team plan an elaborate gold heist against their former ally.
Did anyone else think it was strange that Mos Def played a guy who was deaf in one ear?
Well this is just fucking shit, isn't it?
I want to make something clear from the outset though. It's nothing to do with the fact that it's a remake. I couldn't give a toss about that and I wasn't judging it against the original. So I just wanted to clear that up from the start.
The thing is that I guess I should give this version some credit for trying to be its own film and really having very few similarities to the original at all. But maybe this was an occasion where they might actually have been better off just remaking the original as closely as they possibly could. Why? Because…
F. Gary Gray's "The Italian Job" is a blast. Built on jazzy energy, a pitch-perfect cast, and a sophisticated look, Gray's action-heist pops with an infectious spirit and sense of well-heeled fun. It is a colorful, quick-paced crowd pleaser that easily ranks as one of the '00's best action films.
Starring Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, Mos Def, Jason Statham, Donald Sutherland, and Edward Norton, "The Italian Job" revolves around a gang of thieves who attempt a vengeance-driven heist on a former one of their own. A remake of a 1969 film, the current action outing combines smart plotting with fast cars and a lively sense of adventure.
Gray takes the entertaining story and creates something electric and inviting. Elevated by…
Enjoyable in parts, but kind of drags in other.
The Italian Job seems like a less star studded (yet still almost full of them) version of Ocean's Eleven.
There are less stars in the cast, the heist is a little less clever, and mostly the director and script are not on the same level.
Still, it is an enjoyable caper film.
I do have to credit it where its due. The heist in the beginning, and especially the end are really fun to watch.
Watching Mini Coopers driving all over the city with gold in their trunks, while evading bikes and a chopper is an awesome sight to see.
My only problems with the film is that the script could…
F Gary Gray's The Italian Job is mindless entertainment and nothing more.
Set in Venice the first heist you get is on the water with a damn great boat chase.
The film then reaches a drag point that leaves you wanting more action although the performances are really good from the mix of great actors and we'll known ones it's the action that I craved through out.
The final heist was done with expertise that lead to a predictable ending.yet the action led to a entertaining film for most of the way through.
So silly, and over the top, but unabashedly so. There's nothing about "The Italian Job" to particularly call amazing, but there's so much charm to it whether it's the characters, or the wonderful back and forth between the fun cast, that makes it immensely fun and entertaining to watch. Gray's slick direction with the action set-pieces, and the fun cast makes it all the more entertaining. Plus Charlize Theron in tank tops.
There's nothing new or all that interesting here.
But F. Gary Gray keeps the pace moving and action clear and engaging even if his visual style is about as bland as can be.
We've seen it all a dozen times before, but this film's steady competence and good natured charm make it a fairly engaging and enjoyable heist flick.
I do find it ironic that Gray is directing the next Fast and Furious film since Fast Five ripped off quite a few elements of this one.
Mark Wahlberg is noticeably short. I find this hilarious. I don't know where the heist movie lay out began. Been trying to figure that while watching the movie. Anyways, Seth Green invented Napster apparently and it's a pretty fuckin cool flick. 5 stars
i thought the mini coopers were really exciting also charlize theron is the absolute love of my life
I thought this movie was OK, but it doesnt have the fun of the original movie. This movie is really lacking some Michael Caine. I just found this version really bland.
There was this Napster joke thru out the movie, which made it even more dated than the first movie.
Little disappointed here as I loved this movie when I was 13 but now I'm fairly indifferent towards it. But that makes sense, this is pretty watered down. This plays like MTV decided to make a gritty crime movie but for tweens. This movie should have gone the extra mile and thrown in some nu metal and Sum 41. My vote would be Noots!
It's fine though, really. Has it's moments.
Uma das melhores cosias na vida é conseguir realizar uma vingança em uma pessoa que lhe fez muito mal no passado. E se isso for associado a uma boa história de roubo, é ainda melhor para o espectador.
Depois de ter traído e tentado assassinar os companheiros em um roubo de uma grande fortuna, um ladrão é visitado por eles, os quais farão de tudo para recuperar a parte de cada um e se vingar do traidor.
Um filme de roubo razoável, The Italian Job é favorecido por um inteligente jogo de gato e rato onde cada parte tenta se superar a outra, gerando meios cada vez mais interessantes de se fugir e roubar. Ainda há boas perseguições, piadas efetivas…
Fun heist movie, nothing too complex but that doesn't stop it from being a good movie.
Here is what I hope will be an exhaustive list of film remakes.
If i have missed any, or make…
