Description
In this wholly refreshing remake of the 1969 crime classic starring Michael Caine and Noel Coward, Mark Wahlberg stars as Charlie Croker, a smooth thief who orchestrates a flawless heist in Venice with the help of his mentor, safecracker John Bridger (Donald Sutherland). Together with his cronies--explosives expert Left-Ear (Mos Def), tech whiz kid Lyle (Seth Green), adrenaline junky Handsome Rob (Jason Statham), and the shady Steve (Edward Norton)--Charlie walks away with thirty-five million dollars worth of precious gold bars. But just when the gang appears to be headed to freedom, Steve performs a heist of his own, killing John and running off with the gold, thinking that Charlie and his mates are all deceased. A year later, Charlie has located Steve, who is gradually selling off the gold bars in Los Angeles. With the help of John's beautiful daughter Stella (Charlize Theron), a brilliant safecracker in her own right--as well as those adorable Mini Cooper sports cars--Charlie orchestrates a revenge heist that will teach Steve a valuable lesson about loyalty once and for all. F. Gary Gray's thoroughly entertaining caper film doesn't merely imitate the original, and that is what makes it such a pleasant surprise.

I loved the original so much I just had to buy this. I was not dissapointed.

A great film bringing the story bang up to date. A believable story line follows all the way through with characters you care about.

Plenty of extra features if that's what you are interested in, including Making of, driving school, the mighty mini stunt scenes,deleted scenes, out takes and a trailer.

The Italian Job (2003)

Created: 27/10/05
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Donald Sutherland, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron
Director: F. Gary Gray

I groaned at the prospect of an Italian Job remake. I envisioned a bunch of Hollywood geeks with dollar signs for eyes trying to steal some of the original film’s thunder. Thankfully though, all that connect the two films are monikers and Minis.

Charlie Croker (Wahlberg) and John Bridger (Sutherland) lead a motley bunch of expert thieves into Venice and steal $35 million in gold bars. But, the gang are quickly double-crossed by one of their own, the devious Steve (Norton). One year later, Charlie has tracked him down and is out for revenge, enlisting the help of John’s daughter, Stella (Theron). What follows is a satisfying rush of retribution and action.

I’m very happy to say this film delivers the goods, thanks mostly to its cast. The Italian Job features a charismatic ensemble with some great dialogue and funny moments between them.

And of course, the film doesn’t skimp on the element which made the original such a cult classic – the antics of the new Mini Cooper. Well choreographed and skillful driving grace the thrilling high octane sequences.

The end result is an entertaining, excellently paced flick combining a likeable cast with some clever and meticulous scripting. This is Gone In Sixty Seconds (but better) meets Oceans Eleven. With a damn cool car.

I bought this DVD because I loved the original version of The Italian Job with Michael Caine, and this updated version is just as good, I am so glad I now have both versions of this great film and would definately recommend this DVD to film lovers of this type of movie

The Italian Job (DVD 2004)

Created: 21/04/11
Slick, high octane thriller about a gang of gold thieves plotting to get even with a guy who ripped them off. Although this is not a remake of the classic Michael Caine movie of the same name, the real stars here are, once again, a bunch of pedal-to-the-metal Mini Coopers. The other stars include Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron and Edward Norton. The film opens, spectacularly, in Venice but once the action moves to Los Angeles the story gets sillier and sillier and turns from being a great crime thriller into a noisy, frantic, unbelievable comedy.
