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

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!

Watchable (Fair) - Bank Job, The (2008) **½ 111 min. starring Jason Stratham – Well-meaning bank heist film never really takes off. The story is based on the true to life Baker Street bank robbery of 1971. Terry Leather (Jason Stratham) is called to lead a team in an intricate bank robbery focusing on the safety deposit boxes, where unbeknownst to him, dirty secrets about the royal family lie. The film is ho-hum for most of the way until the last 20 minutes when the action gets going. The problem with this film is that though the characters were based on real people, not many of them had any real personality either.
