Donaldson’s heist

Director Roger Donaldson’s The Bank Job is the latest flick from the film-maker who began his career in New Zealand with Sleeping Dogs in 1977. Bank Job is “solid entertainment”, according to Los Angeles City Beat, achieving “just the right blend of plot mechanics.” City Beat says “it’s the suspense elements that seem to bring out the best in Donaldson, and The Bank Job, despite a fair amount of humour, is pretty much a straight-out thriller.” Donaldson’s other material includes Smash Palace (1981), Dante’s Peak (1997) and The World’s Fastest Indian (2005).
