Amazing car chase scenes and Seth Green at his hysterical best. Forget The Matrix Reloaded - the Italian Job is the action-adventure movie you have to see in the summer of 2003!

This movie is a remake of a 1969 film starring an old dude named Michael Caine. But, that doesn't mean there is anything old or stuffy about this flick. The Italian Job is about a bunch of thieves who pull off a multi-million dollar gold heist. Everything seems perfect until one of their own turns on them and takes off with the gold. The punk'd thieves (who are presumed dead,) want revenge. That's where the real fun starts!

The Italian Job - The Good

Seth Green. The ex-Oz from Buffy, plays Lyle, a computer genius who invented Napster but had it stolen from him by Shawn Fanning. Lyle is a laugh-riot throughout the whole flick. Handsome Rob (played by Jason Statham,) is also a funny character. The chase scenes with three super-specialized Austin Minis are amazing! So is the soundtrack, which features Boomkat's first single, The Wreckoning. (Check out the video right here.)

The Italian Job - The Bad

There really isn't any bad. Surprisingly enough, though, the two most boring actors to watch in The Italian Job, are the stars - Charlize Theron (as Stella Bridger,) and Mark Wahlberg (as Charlie Croker.) Still, they aren't boring or bland enough to affect the film's overall coolness. Even Edward Norton's annoying voice suits his backstabbing character perfectly.

The Italian Job - The Bottom Line

This flick has got enough action and chase scenes to thrill any adventure-lover and enough funny lines and jokes to satisfy any comedy-lover. It's a definite must-see and better than most of the overhyped sequels that are out this summer.

The Italian Job Rating: 5

    I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.

    Well I'm not a really big fan of Taylor Swift but if I had to choose I love both because 'shake it off' is for the older teens as well. So its great as she is growing up so is her music
