Jason Statham stars in the 2008 British crime film The Bank Job, directed by Roger Donaldson and co-starring James Faulkner and Saffron Burrows. Terry Leather (Statham) is a reformed criminal. When the movie begins, he is operating a failing used car garage. Martine Love (Burrows), ex-girlfriend of Terry's photographer buddy, Kevin (Stephen Campbell Moore), makes Terry a proposition. She suggests they rob a bank located on Baker Street. Martine has inside info to aid their heist and ensure it will be a success. Terry takes the bait. He and Martine comprise the leaders of a motley, impromptu bank-robbing crew, which also includes Guy, a con-man (Faulkner); Barnabus, a mechanic (Alki David); a porn star, Dave (Daniel Mays); and Kevin.

Two doors down from the bank, the robbers open a leather store, and they attempt to connect to its interior via an underground tunnel. One of Terry's employees, Eddie (Michael Jibson), plays the lookout atop a neighborhood roof, communicating by walkie-talkie. The crew sets to work, digging away. Unbeknownst to them, Martine is working with MI5 to recover a safety deposit box. The box contains photos of high ranking figures and even a member of the Royal Family. In exchange for her cooperation, Martine will avoid future jail time.

A local radio jockey accidentally intercepts the crew's conversation over walkie-talkie. Deducing that a robbery is taking place, he alerts the authorities. Meanwhile, the crew penetrates the bank vault and they begin looting. Terry and Martine open the safety deposit box, and Martine's cover is all but blown. The crew escapes, eluding MI5, and the police commence an independent investigation into the whereabouts of the robbers. Martine subsequently unbossoms herself to Terry.

Vogel, an underworld figure, discovers that his private ledger detailing successful bribes he made to police has also been stolen from the same bank, and he launches his own search for Terry's crew. The action jumps between London and Trinidad, rushing toward a bloody conclusion.
