Storyline

Led by John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) and Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg) a team is assembled for one last heist to steal $35 million in gold bars from a heavily guarded safe in Venice, Italy. After successfully pulling off the heist, a team member, Steve (Edward Norton), driven by greed and jealousy, arranges to take the gold for himself and eliminate the remaining members of the group. Thinking the team dead, he returns to Los Angeles with the gold. Charlie and the survivors of this betrayal follow Steve to L.A. to exact revenge against the traitor. Charlie enlists the help of John Bridger's daughter, Stella (Charlize Theron) - a professional safe cracker - to get revenge. With Stella and the hacking skills of Lyle (Seth Green), the explosives skills of "Left Ear" (Yasiin Bey), and the driving skills of "Handsome" Rob (Jason Statham) this new team plans and executes a daring heist that weaves through the freeways and subways of L.A.

Trivia

The white MINI used in the film was custom painted "Pepper White" (off white) with a matching roof, which was not a color combination available for the car at the time. From 2001-04, you could only buy MINIs with white roofs. It wasn't until 2005 that you could get a white, black or body-colored roof. See more »

Goofs

Positioning and damage to the MINIs changes in the street chase after the tunnel scene. See more »

Alternate Versions

For the US television version, Steve's line "What the fuck happened to my truck?" has been replaced with alternate footage of him saying "What happened to my truck?". It is not an overdub; it is a complete replacement. See more »

User Reviews

 
A good heist film with a respectable nod to the original.
18 April 2020 | by Andu007See all my reviews

Loved the original and a bit tired of all these remakes. Is the film industry lacking creativity, talent and ideas, that they now have to do this? I watched this not long after it came out and it passed the time and I found it a lot better than I'd thought it would be. After watching it again recently, it is a good heist film in its own right. It's not a complete remake of the original, though the minis speeding through the streets, gold bars, traffic chaos is a respectable nod to it. Plenty of action, stunts and twists and a great all star line up, who carry their characters off well. The film starts in Italy but it's mainly in the US which makes the title a bit non existent. It hasn't got the wonderful cliffhanger ending either, unfortunately!
