Pat M. J. from GRANTS PASS, OR
Reviewed on 8/17/2011...
Fast moving story about thefts, and betrayal among thieves, not least of which is betrayed thief Brosnan who lost his beautiful girlfriend at the same time that he lost the loot. Then, he gets released from prison and goes for the betrayers. Good cast of character actors who give it their all, playing accomplices to the "revenge" theft Brosnan is determined to enact at the racetrack which is "where the money is", which is where Tom Skerrit, the betrayer has the security guard business. Lots of clever footwork
and dastardly deeds throughout.

A Great Heist Movie
SMS | United States | 08/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Where can one start with a review of The Heist. It is a well crafted movie from begining to end. All the colorful characters are well defined and exciting to watch. There is a scene in the middle of the movie where the bad guys are attempting to figure out how Neil "Pierce" is going to rob the track and are able to predict a great many thing and still Neil is able to outwit them all and the cop who is trying to put him back in jail. The Gipsy Kings version of "My Way" at the end is great. Pierce Brosnan loved this story so much and the whole making of a caper movie in general and that this is one of the reasons he went on to develop and star in the remake of "The Thomas Crown Affair", but thats another movie review.
Sexy & Sophisticated

"While I do not rate Pierce Brosnan as one of the all-time great actors, I must say that for an action movie, tthis is one of my favorites. Pierce possesses wit and charm that you would not see again until 1999's Thomas Crown Affair." The plot is defined and the action is top-notch. Recommended for all, especially those of you who adore Pierce brosnan."
A good preview of Thomas Crown Affair
DIANA L HERNANDEZ | 01/12/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A well-crafted movie with an intricate plot, good characters, and a sense of humor. Brosnan is a bit more base as a rougher rogue than his 007 or Thomas Crown characters, but equally charming and with a similar sense of honor. When you see the heist itself, you can't help drawing a comparison with the remade Thomas Crown Affair -- shirts for bowlers. The movie will leave you satisfied, and possibly with a burning desire to cleverly avenge some past wrong. The supporting cast is also very good. Well worth an evening's viewing."
