Critic Reviews for The Last Heist

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Henry Rollins' performance as a philosophical L.A. serial killer is the only reason to see this slipshod indie bank-hostage thriller.

The film rarely comes to life because Rollins, the only compelling actor in the otherwise amateurish cast, is underutilized, and virtually everything else underdeveloped.

While it has a sharp hook - and is reasonably diverting - it never rises above the routine.

Your enjoyment of [the film] is contingent almost entirely upon the ability to forgive shoddy scripting... mediocre acting, fitful pacing, laughable effects and visuals that test the bounds of the word "cheap" under the guise of B-movie fare.

You've seen this heist movie a thousand times before, and not even an eye-snatching serial killer can liven up such archaic plotting.

There's not much drama, because the characters are so one-word thin [...] that it's hard to care what they do or what's done to them.

Audience Reviews for The Last Heist

½

With some more money, some better talent a little more forethought, The Last Heist could have been something truly miraculous. As it stands, it is instead just "Not bad". I like these flip-the-script type crime thrillers. Of course no one's done it quite as well as Dusk till Dawn, but I'm always willing to give them a chance (this year's "Don't Breathe" looks like it has potential in that category as well). Henry Rollins is outstanding, but otherwise the cast is pretty low quality. It's understandable, within the confines of a movie like this, but it still has a negative impact on the tale overall. Like when a machine gun is firing but has no recoil. It doesn't make or break the movie, but it does take you out of the moment, and all these little things add up. Also had a little bit of a Payday vibe, which I appreciate.
