Movie: The Bank Job

Another Jason Statham picture; as you’d expect with a bank heist film set in London, there aren’t a lot of guns in the picture, but it makes up its MA15+ rating with more nudity than the trailer would suggest. Most of the violence is off-screen (or over quickly), but there are more than a few scenes with a sense of menace to them. Somehow, towards the end, we have a scene where Statham seems to take on more of his “Transporter” persona than the rest of the film would suggest.

Is it worth a watch? Perhaps as a one-off. If you like character-driven heist movies, it’s a good example of this: the plot is not completely straightforward, and there are enough players involved in the conspiracy that it becomes interesting to watch them all play out.
