Synopsis

Inspired by an extraordinary true event, a daring, unsolved robbery, which took place more than 35 years ago in London, THE BANK JOB, interweaves a heady combination of intrigue, political scandal and danger.

In September 1971, thieves tunnelled into bank vaults in London's Baker Street and looted safety deposit boxes containing cash and jewellery worth hundreds of millions of pounds. This heist was bigger than The Great Train Robbery. Yet none of the goods have ever been recovered and nobody has ever been arrested, as the UK Government quickly gagged the press with a 'D' Notice to cover up a royal scandal. THE BANK JOB lets us in the dark secrets hidden deep inside the boxes...

British action man Jason Statham plays a small-time thief, Terry, who with mounting debts and a trail of gangsters on his tail lucks out with the arrival of old flame, Martine Love (Burrows), who offers what appears to be an irresistible and simple solution to his sizable financial problems.

With a specialist team of crooks on-board, one of the biggest heists in UK history takes place. But unknown to the gang members there's an ulterior motive to the robbery, as MI5 have the responsibility of stealing seedy photos of a Royal Princess from a safety deposit box, which are currently being used to blackmail the British government.
