They really don't make movies like The Bank Job anymore. In fact, it almost feels like a relic from another age with its focus on plot and character development instead of...well, lingering takes on movie stars (see Hancock). After a surprisingly strong theatrical run, The Bank Job is hands-down the movie you should be renting/buying today. If it has nothing else (and it probably doesn't). Step Up 2 the Streets at least has a few great scenes of Briana Evigan sex-dancing. Shutter is another remake of a better Asian original. Do the world a favor and skip it. Help end this awful trend! Any movie with "College" in the title should be rated R.
