Inspired by the true story of a heist gone wrong. In September 1971, thieves tunnelled into the vault of a bank in London's Baker Street and looted safe deposit boxes of cash and jewellery worth millions of pounds. Nobody was ever arrested. The story made headlines for a few days and then disappeared - the result of a UK government 'D' notice.This film reveals what was hidden in those boxes - a story in which the thieves were the most innocent people involved.

Very enjoyable fact-based politically-motivated heist-flick, however romanticized the truth may have been. Princess Margaret you naughty rascal you...

I am sure there is a good story there. However, “The Bank Job” has too many players and subplots going on, which at times makes it difficult to follow.

A thoroughly enjoyable film. It would scarcely be believable if it was fiction. I especially liked the way a clever ploy by the police to find the bank was undone by a chance mistake. Statham is a full-blown action hero, and is fun to just watch. The violence in this film is especially wrenching because it wasn't gratuitous Hollywood fiction, but actually happened.

Non-stop action. Lots of violence. Not good for children to watch. Fairly strong story. Fairly strong characters. Well acted. Too much unnecessary nudity sexual scenes that had nothing to do with the plot. It will keep you guessing the end result all the way through.

I expected this to be terrible, but it was actually pretty well done. I was sufficiently intrigued to look into the fascinating true story that it is based upon. One thing that drove me nuts is that the robbers in the film left their fingerprints all over the vault -- duh!
