The Italian Job by F. Gary Gray, 2003 (PG-13)

with Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter, Contraband), Charlize Theron (Young Adult), Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games), Jason Statham (Killer Elite), Seth Green, Mos Def, Edward Norton (The Bourne Legacy), Julie Costello, Franky G.

Mark Wahlberg stars as Charlie Croker, a clever thief who masterminds a major heist amid the waterways of Venice, Italy -- but a betrayal by one of his own spells disaster, and Croker returns to Los Angeles without the stash, plotting revenge. With an eye on recovering his riches, Croker rounds up his crew -- adding an ace safecracker (Charlize Theron) to the mix. Donald Sutherland, Seth Green and Mos Def also star in this elaborate crime caper.

Interesting, this movie is shaped in the same way Ocean Eleven was, with the same sort of team (including a girl in an important role) and with a badder guy, less classy in a way. The cast in impeccable, the idea of the robbing very inspired with the use of the city commute as a way out, it flows very well, and at the same time, it was the second time I was watching it and couldn't remember how the story would go. It was smooth, smart but not memorable for some reason. Any different opinion on it?
