An average movie

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast, I thought I might as well check it out. By now, I have seen more than half of the movies directed by David Mamet and even though the guy as quite a reputation (he has won the Pulitzer prize and was nominated for 2 Academy awards), I never really became a big fan of his work and this movie is a per... read more

David Mamet takes this story of thieves along many twists and turns, some of which work and some of which don't. Gene Hackman plays the brilliant leader of a gang (Delroy Lindo, Ricky Jay & Rebecca Pigeon as Hackman's youngish wife), which pulls off complex heists for a despicable fence (Danny DeVito). After stiffing the gang on a jewelry robbery, DeVito forces the gang to go after a Swiss gold shipment and to use his nephew (Sam Rockwell) in the crime. No one trusts anyone and every step is shaded with the unexpected.

"A caper film, filled with snappy dialogue, that reveals the importance of always having a backup plan and being loyal to your friends."

"Yllättävän kivuttomasti katsottava moderni heist-filmi jossa kusetetaan kusettajaa. Danny Deviton näkökulma kaikkia muita puolet lyhyemmästä vitun kovasta mafiapomosta on itseironiaa parhaimmillaan"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2019 (36 movies items)

" Crackle- 1hr. 48min. First Viewing Heist is, essentially, a perfect distillation of David Mamet's directorial efforts; the dialogue and craft elude for a while, but eventually you realize that it's just a typical genre film. An excellent cast, lead by a typically taciturn effort by Gene Hackman, chews into Mamet's verbose dialogue (Ricky Jay gets an all-timer: "My motherfucker's so cool, when he goes to bed, sheep count him") and give each scene a down-to-earth, lived-in weariness that adds som"
