It is a heist movie with car chases, but when the film kill off the best actor and character after only a few minutes and have bored-faced Mark Wahlberg as the lead it is hard to care. Too little of Italy is actually shown too and Edward Norton seem totally without any motivation as he is only there to collect his pay and finish his contract.
I would say that - THE ITALIAN JOB is a very good remake. Wait, I think it's not a remake. This movie is a re-imagining, I suppose. THE ITALIAN JOB is an entertaining blockbuster movie. It also has an excellent cast. Such as Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, and Edward Norton. I feel Edward Norton's talent seems underused. Rather than a villain, he looks like an idiot in here. No offense. Still, THE ITALIAN JOB is fun!
