The bad guy who will not die. The villain here does it all. He murders innocent people for no real reason. He takes a hostage in front of a cop, then kills her for no good reason again, and still escapes the cop chasing him. Finally it end in on one of the most unrealistic scenes in film, thoroughly unsatisfying end.

Gene Hackman heads up an otherwise lacklustre cast in a heist movie about an ageing thief who is blackmailed into performing one last job. As hackneyed as that synopsis sounds, it doesn't quite sum up just HOW uninspired this all is. The dialogue is cliched and occasionally embarrassing, the plot implausible and lacking in humour, and all of it's so-called twists can be seen lumbering over the horizon from a mile away. Not completely awful, but in the end it's nothing more than 90 minutes of "So what?"

Probably one of the best heist movies I've ever seen, which I guess, is why they named it Heist.

Occasionally entertaining, but only just. For a David Mamet film there are some terrible lines of dialogue. 'He's so cool, when he goes to bed, sheep count him'. Being just one of them. And while the actors are good, they don't have the chops to speak his best lines. Its messy, and complicates itself to the point of stupidity, but the heists themselves are quite fun.

"Where's the GOLD?!?!?!?" (Repeat 10x)

Heist is an interesting example of a movie that is in retrospect a surprisingly unoriginal one in terms of storytelling. But it's so enthusiastically carried out as far as the acting and screenplay go that in the moment, it convinces the audience they're watching something new. The characters are a collage of cliches: the veteran thief (Hackman), the femme fatale (Rebecca Pidgeon), the black sidekick (Delroy Lindo), the quirky redshirt (Ricky Jay), the impulsive upstart (Sam Rockwell), and the big bad (Danny DeVito). The plot itself is just another "one last job" kind of storyline but again the script is often clever and the witty dialogue revels in its hardboiled pessimism. Most of the acting is good enough though Sam Rockwell's character is (as many characters point out) a pre...

Brillant cast, great story, purely entertaining.

'Heist' is a heist movie that is more original then most others. It is about a couple of thieves who have to do one last job. The thieves are Joe Moore (Gene Hackman) and his wife Fran (Rebecca Pidgeon), Bobby Blane (Delroy Lindo) and Pinky (Ricky Jay). They are forced to do the job by Mickey Bergman (Danny De Vito), and for this last job he has sent his nephew Jimmy Silk (Sam Rockwell) with them. Joe was recorded by a surveillance camera last time so he must be extra careful.
The movie starts with the first job where Joe was recorded, which is a lot of fun to watch. Then we have the last job, which is pretty clever as well, and of course it can't end there. After a lot of plot twists we think the movie is finally over but there is one last twist. It doesn't matter really because most of...
