Did you happen to notice how many films about Los Angeles use the same locations? Hollywood Homicide and S.W.A.T. both used several of the same as The Italian Job. I thought other heist movies were better – The Thomas Crown Affair (original and remake) for example, and Ocean’s Eleven (remake) was a hoot. Honor and dishonor among thieves. In The Italian Job it’s easy to note a new filmmaking technique – the gorgeous stars stop, pose and sparkle for the camera as if for a magazine. All in all, it was very entertaining. But don’t look to stay awake at 3:00 in the morning thinking about deep, important, meaningful things. Not while you could be driving your Mini Cooper down the train tracks… (In Ocean’s Eleven there’s no bad language, sex, or violence and it’s completely immoral. Now, that’s worth talking about!)
