What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Paul Adrendt Another lump of flotsam from the ebbing tide of dodgy British gangster flicks.
Jason Anderson The Bank Job remains an unusually lively showcase of Brits behaving badly.
James Berardinelli The Bank Job is smart, well-paced, exciting entertainment for adults - something that is more of a rarity than it should be.
Peter Travers Dull title for a juicy, fact-based caper movie that's full of surprises.
Certainly not for the kids, the film is a decent, adult-oriented throwback to heist films of old, where viewers get caught up in the proceedings, watching the thieves ending up in over their heads and trying to squirm or manipulate their way out of that.
Tomatometer Well cast and crisply directed, The Bank Job is a thoroughly entertaining British heist thriller.
