Hollywood hunk Mark Wahlberg has declared his upcoming movie THE ITALIAN JOB the best film he's ever made.

Wahlberg says the high-speed heist flick, which also stars Charlize Theron and Edward Norton, far outstrips any of his other flicks, including PLANET OF THE APES and Rock Star.

He explains, "It just works on every level. First of all, it's surrounded by the best young actors in the business and they all brought their own personalities to the roles. We made a character-driven piece with well-rounded characters.

"There's no computer-generated effects in this movie. It's kind of back to the basics, but it works as a whole. It has the best stunt sequences and action sequences I've ever seen."
