The Bank Job is inspired by an extraordinary true event - a daring robbery that took place in the 70s, with a haul valued higher than that of the Great Train Robbery. Yet almost as soon as the 'Walkie Talkie Bank Job' happened, a gagging order was placed on the story and it disappeared completely from the media. Only now, over 30 years later, has the fascinating story come to light and the truth behind a right royal scandal been exposed. Director Roger Donaldson (The Recruit, Species), The Bank Job reveals an amazing backstory where for once the criminals were the most innocent ones involved. Starring Jason Statham (The Transporter, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Saffron Burrows (Deep Blue Sea) and David Suchet (TV's Poirot), this is a highly charged thriller and an immensely enjoyable Brit-flick in one.
