Critic Reviews for The Great Heist (El Robo del Siglo) Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The high-stakes bank job thriller is a heady watch that does an expert job of cranking the tension up and up until it leaves you sweating with anticipation.

Francella and Peretti bring charisma, empathy and a certain dose of pathos to their characters, but Pablo Rago and Rafael Ferro feel like they could be used better. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 18, 2020 | Full Review…

The show's good with quickly building and then puncturing dramatic tension with a neat rhythm that keeps the 40-ish-minute installments feeling pacey.

Aug 18, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Not that the performances on The Great Heist aren't good, but we just don't care enough about any of the characters to keep following their attempt to pull this massive heist off.

Aug 17, 2020 | Full Review…

A predictable plot. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for The Great Heist (El Robo del Siglo): Season 1

  • Aug 22, 2020
    (The Great Heist) La nueva serie colombiana de Netflix de 6 episodios, inspirada en el Asalto al Banco de la República en Valledupar de 1994, el robo bancario de dinero en efectivo más grande de la historia del país. Aunque los hechos reales fueron alterados significativamente, hay que reconocer el potencial narrativo de la serie y sus notables escenas de suspenso para fines dramáticos. Su capacidad para transportar al espectador a la década de los 90 es indiscutible y convincente, mediante su uso de material audiovisual, tecnología de la época, y una excelente selección musical que evoca nostalgia y hace las veces de una máquina del tiempo. Colombia tiene la capacidad de crear contenido de calidad como esta serie y debería seguir haciéndolo, a un nivel más internacional.
