The Italian Job

The Italian Job
starring Michael Caine

This movie is so close to greatness, it hurts. Michael Caine is as cool as they come as the master thief planning a multi-million dollar heist, and the mid-60s fashion is top notch. The plan is ingenious. So what's the problem?

The problem is that there is hardly a moment of tension in the film ... hardly a point where Caine's success doesn't seem certain. They devise their plan, have a tiny little bump with the Mafia that is barely resolved, and then the execute their plan ... ta da! Then, at the end ... a (literal) cliffhanger! Certainly worth watching, The Italian Job violates many of the central rules of the heist film. Rules aren't always meant to be broken.
