One just got released from prison, the other just "accidentally" killed a prostitute, so what's a couple of down on their luck career criminals to do? Rob a bank and head to Brazil of course! What could possibly go wrong? Gunshot wounds, terrorists, crazed gang-bangers, crazy women, heart-stopping car chases and of course the law make "The Bank Job" the most explosive action title for April, hot on the heels of "Miami Vice" and "Crank"!
Too many films these days strive to be something they're not. Especially independent movies. With "The Bank Job" first time director Brad Jurjens succeeds in making a film that comes straight from the gut. This is a movie you go to see to have a good time. A movie that gets you fired up. A movie that makes you want to jump in the screen and go for the ride. Sure it's a bit silly at times but due to the film's shoestring budget the comedy aspect is it's saving grace. A very smart move. But still for being a micro budget movie it manages to pull off a string of car chases that look like a million bucks. This is the movie that the disappointing "Smokin' Aces" should've been. A no holds barred blast of an action comedy that doesn't bail out in the end to try and become a serious drama. It knows what it is and what it is is a good time. Highly Recommended.
