    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    A triumph for the machines, more proof that we do indeed live in the Matrix. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    This is pure entertainment but smart entertainment, plotted and executed with invention and humor and acted by a winning cast radiating good-movie energy. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Do yourself a favor and resist The Italian Job, a lazy and in-name-only remake of 1969's G-rated Michael Caine heist pic. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The best car commercial ever, an absolute triumph of product placement, and great fun as a movie in the bargain. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Zooms along with confidence, smarts, and some of the coolest car chases this side of the Indy 500. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    A slicker, faster-paced, high-tech upgrade that lifts the sprightly spirit and the main action set piece from the original while developing its own twists and a new ending that, though a bit too pat and eager to please, is a vast improvement. show more

    Sheri Linden The Hollywood Reporter

    Less giddy and more cohesive than the original, the film doesn't waste time, plunging almost directly into a spectacular heist. show more

    This is just the movie for two hours of mindless escapism on a relatively skilled professional level. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    It's an entertaining picture, classy and well executed, but as much as any film I've seen recently, this lush new version of the 1969 Michael Caine thriller tends to prove that, where thrillers are concerned, "more" is often less. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Norton is unapologetic and unflappable in his part. Slimy and vaguely nerdy, he's become the thinking man's thug, even if this character's Armani-wear is better tailored than his psychology. show more
