"Stunts put Italian Job to shame"[edit]

I've just seen "Goodbye Pork Pie" (GPP) for the first time - and after reading the above comment in the article was moved to re-watch The Italian Job (TIJ - the original with Micheal Caine). Whilst GPP arguably has a better plot, more credible characters and so forth - it's stunts don't come close to being as good as those on TIJ. Both movies have Minis driving through buildings, doing handbrake turns, sliding through corners and such. The jump into the moving railway car in GPP is clearly easier than getting into the back of a moving bus up two steep and narrow ramps (especially in a front-wheel drive car). Aside from those direct comparisons, I don't see stunts that rival the jump from one building to the next, driving up the sides of sewer pipes, driving across a fast-flowing weir or over the roof of a football stadium. In both movies a police car ends up in a river - but the stunt in TIJ is much more complex and elegant.

Add to that the fact that each TIJ stunt had to be performed three times simultaneously or in quick succession by three different cars.

GPP is a great movie - but it doesn't touch TIJ for it's stunts.

Hence, I believe that (at best), the above comment is not NPOV and should be removed. At worst, it's flat out wrong - and demonstrably so.

Fate of the Minis[edit]

The Trivia section states that "After the film two of the Minis that were undamaged were returned to The New Zealand Motor Corporation". However I know Geoff Murphy keep one of the undamaged ones and was still using it around 1981. I guess they could have been returned after that time or he come to some arrangement after return them? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ukoda (talkcontribs) 03:27, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

"The film is really made by a series of non-CGI car chase sequences"

This is a bit like saying that the Titanic was a non-computerised passenger ship, or that the Roman Empire was a pre-space travel civilisation! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.169.18.86 (talk) 11:51, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Tech Specs[edit]

The article need some more tech specs. Was it filmed with video?, 35mm?, anamorphic?, etc. The DVD is 4:3, but that's maybe just an older production copy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.244.237.29 (talk) 11:22, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
