The Italian Job (2003)

While I remembered the overall plot, I had forgotten all of the details.

Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg)

Unfortunately for the film, what I had remembered as being a clever heist film with some good action which included a cool Mini Cooper escape scene degenerated into a partially failed heist film with minimal action and a Mini Cooper exercise scene.

Stella Bridger (Charlize Theron)

Consequently, although I had the movie rated at four out of five stars on Netflix, today I decided to lower it to three stars; it simply wasn't as great as I remembered.

John Bridger (Donald Sutherland)

[I mistook Mos Def (Yasiin Bey), the actor who played Left Ear, with Taye Diggs from Equilibrium (2002)]
Hmm... what movie did I see the old man in recently? [Oh, I guess not recently. He is, however, President Snow in The Hunger Games]

Left Ear (Yasiin Bey as Mos Def) and Handsome Rob (Jason Statham)

"I like what you said, I'll take one of each of yours."
Invented Napster.

Lyle (Seth Green)

"It's the devil inside them I don't trust."
Hmm... I'll assume he can only stop the train (and not start it). Cause if he could stop it and start it, he could have just stopped it, let his teammates pass, and then start it again until it got into position.

They're pretty happy for having only recovered 27 out of 35 million.
"You know this was never about the gold." "Whatever helps you sleep at night sweetheart."
