In 1971, the criminal Michael X (Peter De Jersey) blackmails the British government with compromising photos of members of the parliament practicing kinky sex with prostitutes. He keeps the photos in a safe deposit box in the Lloyds Bank in the Baker Street.<br/><br/>The ambitious MI-5 Federal Agent Tim Everett (Richard Lintern) plots a bold plan to retrieve the pictures using a heist of the bank. He arrests the former model Martine Love (Saffron Burrows) in the airport trafficking drugs and offers security information to her to facilitate to rob of the bank.In return, he requests the content of the safe box no. 118 that belongs to Michael X.<br/><br/>Martine goes to East London and meets her former lover, the car dealer Terry Leather (Jason Statham) that is married with two daughters but owes money to a dangerous loan shark, and tells him that the bank&#39;s alarm will be deactivated during a few days. Terry summons his friends and the team of amateurs succeeds in the heist. However, together with the money, the gang also steels the photos of Michael X; the book with the transactions with dirty cops of the Scotland Yard of the pornographer Lew Vogel (David Suchet); and photos of politicians in the Sonia Bern&#39;s brothel. Now different groups organize a manhunt to Terry and his friends with different objectives, where the stolen money is the less important. <br/><br/>&quot;The Bank Job&quot; was the great surprise of this week, with a good story based on true events. I bought this Blu Ray a long time ago but my expectations were very low. However this film is one of the best movies of bank heist that I have ever seen. In the end, the thieves are the most charismatic characters among such corruptors and unethical people. My vote is eight.<br/><br/>Title (Brazil): &quot;Efeito Dominó&quot; (&quot;Domino Effect&quot;)

Jason Statham is well on his way to becoming typecast. It seems like he&#39;s in a ton of these kind of action films lately, although this movie is a bit more subdued and complicated than some of them. At least in this heist flick, there are several twists and turns and you have to stay alert to follow who is exactly on the up-and-up and who isn&#39;t, and Statham isn&#39;t punching out 10 people at once.<br/><br/>This is another one of these modern-day films in which the crooks, the thieves, the bandits - whatever - are the &quot;good guys&quot; and the police and the government officials are the bad guys. This seems to be a big favorite of the anti-authority filmmakers world in the last 40 years whether it&#39;s in Hollywood or London. Regardless, it&#39;s a very entertaining film and Statham and company are fun to watch. That&#39;s also nothing new as the tough &quot;Transporter&quot; star has become a regular at playing these kind of nice guy/macho/thug roles.<br/><br/>Statham plays &quot;Terry Leather,&quot; a man recruited by a former hottie/model girlfriend &quot;Martine Love,&quot; (Saffron Burrows) to rob a bank. Statham is a family man but desperate for money and, obviously, not very honest. Thousands of pounds/dollars is in it for the thieves but valuable compromising sex photos are the real goal of the people who want the bank depository drawers robbed. Those want to be grabbed before the owner uses them and ruins some high uppity-ups in British government. Several people wants photos for other reasons. This whole thing isn&#39;t simple; there are number of sub-plots along the way regarding who wants what in the bank and for what reasons. <br/><br/>There is also a story involving a Malcolm X-wannabe kind of creep who is into extortion and murder. Actually, everyone is pretty much a creep in this film, just to varying degrees. They are all interesting, too, and several of the minor characters have a good sense of humor, too. In particular, I liked Daniel Mays as &quot;Dave Shilling.&quot; Add some very tense robbery scenes, some sex early on, some double-crosses later and you have a very serious Keystone Cops type story where you&#39;re never quite sure what crazy thing is going to happen next.<br/><br/>A fun two hours of diversion, supposedly based on a true-life account, but knowing filmmakers I suspect much of this is made up for dramatic purposes. That&#39;s okay, we just watch to be entertained, and this is entertaining.

Having been weaned on The Italian Job, Thomas Crown Affair and the Ocean&#39;s 11 series, The Bank Job is glaringly lacking. Set in the 70s and based on a true story of an extraordinary bank heist, it would be understandable if snazzy gizmos and high-tech effects are absent, but the execution could use a lot of help.<br/><br/>Martine (Saffron Burrows) is an ex-model who hires her ex Terry (Jason Statham) to rob a bank. Despite having already turned over a new leaf complete with a wife and kid, Terry accepts. He and his team push through with their plan, only they uncover not just material wealth but blackmail-worthy bits of damning evidence as well.<br/><br/>There is no charisma between the main characters, between the purported exes and within the thieving team. None of them are even likable so it&#39;s a stretch to get the audience to root for them. The end result is dry, when opportunities for a bit more cleverness and wit were rife.
