The Bank Job ★★★

A blokey tall tale from the pens of Dick Clement and Ian Le Frenais, competently directed by Roger Donaldson. Notable for a different type of performance from Jason Statham, albeit one which shows the promise he'd focus over time, and for being a little bit more ambitious than other British films. However, there's little suspense in its true story and the Princess Margaret pics are a saucy and unimaginative MacGuffin, which doesn't distract from the more monstrous possibilities that are conjured up by its shady plot.
