Story


The plan was flawless ... the job was executed prefectly ... the escape was clean. The only threat mastermind thief Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg) never saw coming was from a member of his own crew. After pulling off an amazing gold bullion heist from a heavily guarded palazzo in Venice, Italy, Charlie and his gang -- inside man Steve (Edward Norton), computer genius Lyle (Seth Green), wheelman Handsome Rob (Jason Statham), explosive expert Left-Ear (Mos Def) and veteran safecracker John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) -- can't believe it when one of them turns out to be a double-crosser. Now the job isn't about the payoff, it's about payback! Enter Stella (Charlize Theron), a beautiful nerves-of-steel safecracker, who joins Charlie and hos former gang when they follow the backstabber to California, when they plan to re-steal the gold by tapping into Los Angeles' traffic control system, manipulating signals and creating one of the biggest traffic jams in L.A history!

A contemporary update of Paramount's 1969 classic, "The Italian Job" features the ever-popular MINI Cooper in state-of-the-art chase scenes down Hollywood's Walk of Fame, through the Metro Rail tunnels and down narrow escape routes only the MINI can go. Full of twists, turns and exciting stunts with armored cars, motorcycles and helicopters, this action-packed thrill-ride takes audiences on wild curves they'll never see coming.
