Feels both absolutely of the 1970s and absolutely fresh.

Imagine a blend of "Snatch," "Ocean's 11" and "The Italian Job." Then juxtapose the staples of the caper genre with real events involving national security and high-level corruption, and the result is The Bank Job.

The movie doesn't hang together as a thriller, and the characters don't hang together as interesting people.
