The Bank Job (2008)
Directed by Roger Donaldson
Roger Donaldson's bank heist/conspiracy thriller hybrid - scripted by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais - stars Jason Statham as the leader of a gang of thieves who bite off more than they can chew. When car dealer and one-time crook Terry Leather is approached by his old flame Martine Love with a proposition that would put his money worries behind him for good, he jumps at the chance. Leather quickly assembles a team which digs a tunnel directly into a London bank's vault. But what he hasn't been told is that, in addition to the money, he'll also be stealing a safety box containing material that would be extremely damaging to the royal family if it saw the light of day.
Another box they take holds further dramatic revelations concerning establishment figures. So it's not long before Leather and the gang are pursued by the police, MI5 and various thugs, all keen to get their hands on the incendiary information..
