The Italian Job – 1969 – Peter Collinson

04m.jpgWhich to watch – original or remake? There is a time gap of 30 plus years. Turin versus LA. Michael Caine and a band of polo necked Cockney criminals. Mark Wahlberg and the usual Hollywood stereotypes. The original steals it and not just for the brilliant car chase in the Mini Coopers.

  1. The Original is by far the best.

    The “remake” isn’t a remake. It’s a completely different story. Different plot, different locations, different characters. Only one character name carried over. Croker. Still a fab move though!
