The Italian Job

9:00pm Monday, September 13 on F4

Mark Wahlberg stars in this affectionate re-make of the British classic as Charlie Croker, who, after taking over from John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) as the leader of a gang of thieves, celebrates his new status with a multi-million-dollar job in Venice. But gang member Steve Frezelli (Edward Norton) double-crosses his friends, kills Bridger and leaves the rest for dead. The gang survive and Croker spends a year tracking the traitor, using the safecracking skills of Bridger’s daughter Stella (Charlize Theron) to rob Steve and avenge her father’s death. F Gary Gray’s all-action movie does, of course, include the famous Minis sequence, with several of the cast doing their own driving.
