This is their chance of a lifetime, but what they don't know is the true purpose of the robbery They quickly find themselves in a scheme involving MI-5, the Royal Family, corrupt detectives, a Black Power leader, and a local porn king. This pulse-pounding crime drama is based on the greatest heist in British history.Don't expect The Bank Job to have as much action as some of Statham's other movies like The Transporter, Crank and War. The movie has action moments, but the explosions and gunshots are few and far between, which is to be expected since the movie is based on a real event. My girlfriend and I both liked the movie, and the featurettes on the disc. The feature-length commentary with Director Roger Donaldson, Actress Saffron Burrows ("Martine Love") and Composer J. Peter Robinson is entertaining throughout, and provides insight into the movie, the real ba... read more
