There’s something interesting about heist films because, generally, you’re rooting for criminals to pull off a heist and criminals usually aren’t who you’d expect to be your protagonist. But watching Roger Donaldson’s 2008 heist film The Bank Job, based on the real Baker Street Robbery in London 1971, you can’t help but root for Terry Leather and his imperfect gang as they not only rob the bank and pull off one of the biggest scores in London’s history, but actually get away with it too. Maybe that’s because the people after them are all much worse, and maybe that’s because you can’t help but side with Terry played wonderfully by Jason Statham. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we start our Heist series with this great movie.
