Content:

(PaPa, B, Ho, LL, VVV, SSS, NN, D, A, MMM) A heavily pagan worldview in which immorality is rampant at all levels of society and, though there are a few honest police willing to oppose evil both in high and low society, many police and elected officials are corrupt, plus light homosexual elements; 16 strong obscenities but seems like more; violence is brief but very disturbing such as white landlord tortured by black racketeer, man is tortured and murdered to get him to talk, woman police informant is murdered with a machete, and some physical fighting; very strong sexual content includes opening scene of what appears to be lesbian sex involving royal family member, another scene features a vile house of prostitution in which major politicians engage in sadomasochism and are secretly filmed, and a third scene features a gangster reviewing a pornographic movie while trying to identify an actor; several prostitutes are shown naked or topless; some alcohol use; some smoking; and, miscellaneous immorality is extreme, including lying, kidnapping, blackmail, robbery, prostitution, police payoffs, torture, and murder.

Summary:

THE BANK JOB is a British crime drama in which the high and mighty secretly enlist the low and dirty to rob a bank hoping to retrieve some nasty photos from a safe deposit box. More nasty secrets than expected come to light and some are pornographically portrayed in movie, making it unsuitable for viewing by people with good moral values.

Review:

THE BANK JOB is a British crime drama in which the high and mighty secretly enlist the low and dirty to rob a bank hoping to retrieve some nasty photos from a safe deposit box. The caper gets out of control when more sleaze than was expected is found in the boxes. Everyone from royalty, to leading politicians, to policemen and gangsters go after the thieves to try to keep their nasty secrets quiet. Sadly, the nasty secrets are pornographically portrayed in the movie, making it unsuitable for viewing by people with good moral values.

On the bright side, the movie clearly shows that engaging in immorality has horrible consequences. Secret sinners, corrupt policemen, nasty thugs, and even the so-called petty thieves themselves all wind up fearing exposure, capture or even death. One thief, who wanted to pull off the job to better support his family, winds up being identified by his own young daughter when the police publically broadcast intercepted communication between the bank robbers.

If you think what you do in the privacy of your bedroom or office is secret, you’re wrong.

God sees all. In fact, He sees right into the heart of your soul. If you even lust, God knows. If you’re proud, greedy, or covetous, God knows. On judgment day we’ll be accountable, but the good news is that God has a plan to forgive us and renew our minds. If you’ll surrender your heart to Him, he can forgive your sins and clean up your desires.

Sadly, while THE BANK JOB shows that even a bank vault cannot hide sin from the world, the movie goes so far in exposing sin that it becomes a pornographic peep show in the process. A good cinematographer can film the story of David and Bathsheeba without making a porn flick. By being too graphic, THE BANK JOB will turn away audiences that might otherwise have been interested in the story.
