The Italian Job 4K Ultra HD
Peter Collinson’s timeless classic about a crime gang that plan a huge gold heist in Turin, Italy. Michael Cane’s portrayal of the eminently quotable gang leader, Charlie Croker, endures as one of the all-time iconic British performances. The Italian Job has an intricate plot, comedic one-liners, and very cool 1960s Mini Coopers performing some impressive stunts.


In this furiously fast-paced action-comedy, Charlie Croker (Michael Caine) is out of jail and on the make with an ingenious plan for the heist of the century. Aided and abetted by top criminal mastermind Mr. Bridger (Nol Coward), Charlie sets off with an ace team and three very special cars to lift a major stash from under the noses of the Turin Polizei. Featuring one of the most incredible car chase sequences in movie history, and a true cliffhanger of a finale.


There isn’t much new left to say about a 55 year old film but to put it simply - The Italian Job is a perfect crime caper movie. Often imitated - never bettered. Michael Caine is at the top of his game, and who doesn’t want to see Nol Coward as a criminal mastermind? The Mini Coopers are so fun and even half a century later you’ll want to go out and drive one!


What is most important here is to discuss the fact that you can now experience The Italian Job in Ultra High Definition. The 4K UHD print of this movie fantastic. I’ve watched the DVD and the Blu-ray and I can report that the 4K version the print have been cleaned up beautifully - even better than with the Blu-ray. It’s clear that the negatives have been meticulously worked on, cleaned up and digitally enhanced, to create the very best image possible in Ultra High Definition.


If you’ve bought this beautiful 55th anniversary boxset then I’m certain that you’ve seen The Italian Job before. But you’ve not seen it in 4KUHD. It’s certainly worth the upgrade. At the very least from DVD. It offers a beautifully clean print of the film, the image is sharp, the colours are rich, and the sound quality is also very high.


This could easily be the best Father’s Day present of 2024. Buy it now, and if you haven’t seen it before, do yourself a favour and watch this timeless classic with your Dad!
