After our recent run of duff DVDs (Drive and Black Swan), we decided to watch this latest acquisition – The Bank Job – not really knowing much about it. Set in London in the 70s and starring Jason Statham plus a host of other well known Brit actors including Keeley Hawes and David Suchet, it’s about a bank job that goes a bit ‘Pete Tong’.
Jason did what he does best – acted and looked menacingly at everything and everybody, whilst keeping his language ‘fruity’. The best way to describe the feel of the film? A world of dodgy geezers and bent coppers – a sort of Only Fools and Horses but with serious violence and no laughs!
All-in-all a it was a good film with plenty of action and a plot-line that kept us guessing. I also liked the meticulous attention to detail in re-creating 70s London (telephones, cars, British Rail signs etc etc). A satisfying ending too!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
