The Italian Job is a heist/revenge film with little to recommend it. Mark Wahlberg somehow thinks he's George Clooney, but isn't. Charlize Theron is trapped in a boring role. The costars are amusing only when they're not being annoying. And I like Seth Green and Jason Statham... it's just that I don't like to see them in a movie like this.
There is a halfway decent chase scene at the end of the film, but certainly not good enough to sit through the 130 minutes which preceed it.
Skip this job - watching a movie shouldn't be as boring as work.
