Everyone Wants to be a Critic *** SOME SPOILERS ***
Being a critic doesn’t mean you have to bash every movie you see. This movie received lots of bad reviews from the critics. It seems they don’t like drama, action or comedy. I found The Italian Job to be quite entertaining and I think that’s what counts! Ed Norton played an excellent villain who said in the movie, “right or wrong, I don’t care, it’s about what I want”. His character had no morals which explained why he was able to turn on his follow thieves. The director left no stone unturned. Every word and action was accounted for and in my opinion, that’s a huge contribution to what makes a good flick. While nothing new was introduced, the movie had some of the best car chases I’ve seen in a while. The plot was good and the actors were excellent. I thought The Italian job was well cast and the story was well acted and well told.
The action was endless and I had such satisfaction because the ending was soooo… sweet. It’s okay to just sit back and be entertained by a movie. You don’t have to pick it apart for every little thing. The Italian Job has good intellect and good special effects. I guarantee anyone who sees this movie will walk away satisfied.
