The title should tell you what this movie
is about. The thieves try to pull off the perfect robbery.
There are many twists and complex sets
of double-crosses, and at a certain point, you start believing
everything might be a scam.
What makes this movie fun is the characters,
their wit and wisecracks. The actors work so well together, it's
just fun to watch the way they try to outwit each other.
As caper flicks go, this is a good one--with
a fine ensemble cast, just to make sure.
But trying to keep track of the character
loyalties is tough; if you blink you may miss who is on who's
side. This movie has more twists than a Chubby Checker dancathon.
Is there honor among thieves? I think not.
The film Heist is complex at times
with its string of double and triple-crosses and more twists
than a bag of pretzels.
The characters and dialogue are sharp,
but the plot is confusing and keeps fooling everyone with so
many about-faces that the movie eventually becomes tiresome and
The problem I had with this muddled story
was that I left the flick not caring or even being put in a position
to care about Heist.
