The Italian Job 2003

Unknown-2

For anyone British, the 1969 version of The Italian Job is a cultural cornerstone, a cinematic testament to the idea of the UK conquering all. Not surprisingly, F Gary Gray’s 2003 version takes a different tack, with Charlie Croker now played by Mark Wahlberg and the use of Minis in a heist setting the only specific callback. As generic thrillers go, the new Italian Job has plenty to offer, with Donald Sutherland, Jason Stratham and Charlize Theron all on board, making up from Edward Norton’s disinterested villain. It may not be have the same daft patriotism as its predecessor, but The Italian Job makes for a smooth ride, and is one of the few films that were worth a sequel that didn’t get one.
