Movie Info

As helmed by Laurent Tuel, this visceral French crime saga follows the doings of the Malakian clan, a family of mobsters who rule the criminal underground with an iron fist. Spearheading it all is don Milo Malakian (Jean Reno); poised to assume control after Milo retires is his son, Anton (Gaspard Ulliel). Anton longs to break free and build his own life, but to do so, he must bring down his father's nemesis via one final heist job that will prove Anton's mettle once and for all. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Ultimate Heist (Le premier cercle)

Good French film...This is a rather slow moving drama, with a common plot that is told in a different perspective. The acting is very solid, ie Jean Reno. The cinematography is very good. The story has subtle ironic events that are not predictable, and the overall feel of the movie is life-like..not hype. All in all, it has a really good feel, a good moral, a great connection between characters, and an outstanding cast. I believe any patient person who appreciates attention to detail would like this movie.

Fairly run-of-the-mill French caper movie. Reno is mostly subdued here; he really doesn't have much to do except brood. The heist is too hastily planned so of course something goes wrong. On the plus side, it introduced me to the lovely Vahina Giocante, whom I'm going to have to get more familiar. As for the movie, meh.

"Le Premier Cercle" is a rather slow-paced French action drama. Unpredictable story line, but still does not result in a suspense-filled 95 mins watch. Could have been done better. Jean Reno and Gaspard Ulliel have solid acting though.
