The Italian Job (2003) — Though it bears little resemblance to the original 1969 thriller starring Michael Caine, the 2003 remake of The Italian Job stands on its own as a caper comedy that's well above average. The title's...  more »

Movie Reviews

THE ONLY QUESTION IS WHICH ONE I LIKE MORE.
11/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the right way to make a remake: fun, clever, and full of great stunts (as opposed to unbelievable CGI effects a la Charlie's Angels).
The old version is pretty good too, I bought it without having seeing it before and it didn't dissapoint. It doesn't always make sense (just what the heck did the Minis climb that huge roof for ?) but then again, who cares ?!?
Great movies which make your DVD player a great reason to exist!"
Just get the 1969 version...another remake "letdown"!

"All that hype?..not only has the story changed from the original, that itself not necessarily a bad thing, but there really are some slow and boring bits that modern technology doesn't make up for. The stars of this NOT ALL THAT BAD movie are the the cars themselves and the all too brief appearance of Donald Sutherland. Get the original 1969 Michael Caine version only to keep...you'll watch that much more than once for sure, storyline, the setting, the cast of actors AND all the classic cars put on a much better show. Five stars for 1969 movie!..subtract two for the "remake"."
Exceptional combo

"With a common deminator of Morris Minors these two movies reflect the entertainment of their day. The original, starring a ridiculously young Michael Caine, remains fresh despite its age. Filled with irepressible Cockney humor it moves between the comic moments to the final 'cliffhanger' leaving us all hanging. With appearance by Noel Coward, Benny Hill (in true form)
The new version is much more a thriller of today. superbly fast paced, a truly rotten villain (a great performace as always from Edward Norton) and some brilliant heist scenes this ranks up there with the Rock, Con Air and the like for excitement. Mark Whalberg shines and Charlize Theron is so much more than joyous eye candy here."
