The Bank Job. 2008.

Friends from CO had this from NetFlix while we were visiting, and I had not heard of it before then.  The “visuals” were a bit surprising early on — but later they made more sense when we learned that it was a kind of brothel for a porn king.   I did find the story a bit hard to follow early on, but as the movie progressed, the pieces fell together.

The story is based on a true heist that “went wrong in all the right ways” according to the tag line.  Wikipedia has this line: 

According to the producers, this movie is intended to reveal the truth for the first time, although it includes significant elements of fiction and the extent to which it represents historical fact is difficult to determine.

The movie was ok, but not as good as The Italian Job.
