Critic Reviews for Heist
I couldn't believe any of it on any level, though it could be described as 'fun.'
It's one of Mamet's best. It's also one of Hackman's best, most mercurial performances.
[Mamet] is a giant in several areas, but I'm not sure moviemaking is one of them.
Structured as a trick within a trick within a trick, Mamet's latest contribution to film noir is a mildly entertaining crimer that nonetheless exposes his strenuous efforts to outsmart the audience.
This is a world not unlike superhero comics, only in this world the heroes have the superhuman ability to knock down buildings with a split-second comeback line.
Audience Reviews for Heist
A watchable Heist film, but not a particularly exciting one. The plot was full of little twists, but most of them predictable and for me this film brought nothing new to films sharing this theme.
It's pure dynamite. Sizzeling and exhilerating. A razor-sharp crime thriller. One of the best and smartest heist films ever made. Snaps and crackels with great suspense and action. awsome twist and turns all the way to the end. Terifficly written and well-crafted. A brilliant cast of actors. Gene Hackman has never been better. A cool, captivating and fantastic performance. Delroy Lindo is teriffic. Danny DeVito is explosive.
This was okay.
