Sometimes a high-stakes, thrilling movie about federal crimes can be fun, right? The nail-biting and gasps of excitement as that prized gem is stolen or a high-speed chase comes to a crashing end are proof of that.
Heist movies, despite the fact that they’ve been around since the dawn of feature films, are still always exciting. They establish the characters, what’s at stake, who’s against them, and how they eventually pulled off their plan. Here is a list of the best heist movies that you need to watch.
1. Ocean’s 8
Ocean’s 8 is a heist comedy film that is a spin-off of the Ocean’s trilogy and features an ensemble cast of absolute stars like Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and even Rihanna. The film’s premise centres around a group of women–led by Debbie Ocean (Danny Ocean’s sister)–that plans to steal $150 million worth of diamonds from the MET Museum.
2. Now You See Me
Now You See Me is a heist film starring Jesse Eisenburg as a magician who leads a group of illusionists called the Four Horsemen. The group of magicians mesmerises audiences with magic shows and takes money from the corrupt rich and gives it to audience members. When federal agents get involved, they turn to another friend to help them avoid a grim fate. Now You See Me is truly remarkable and such a unique concept for a heist film.
3. Tower Heist
Tower Heist is a heist comedy film starring Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, and more. The plot follows a group of employees from a high-end apartment complex who lose their pensions in the Ponzi scheme of a Wall Street businessman. So, they decide to take their revenge by breaking into his apartment and stealing their money back while simultaneously avoiding FBI agents.
4. National Treasure
Perhaps the most well-known of Nicolas Cage’s performances are in Disney’s heist film, National Treasure. National Treasure follows Ben Gates (Cage), a historian and code-breaker who embarks on a task to find a historic American treasure linked with the Declaration of Independence.
5. The Mask Of Zorro
The Mask of Zorro is one of the most well-known films, and the hero Zorro has become a household name. The movie follows Zorro, a man recently released from prison who hears that his old enemy is back. He trains a man to be his successor and fights against his enemy who is hatching a plot to rob California of all its gold. Glory, family, and lives are at stake in this film. The Mask of Zorro is one of those classic films that can be enjoyed at any time and has become a staple in the world of film.
6. Baby Driver
Baby Driver follows a character named Baby, a music-obsessed orphan who is a naturally-gifted genius in being the perfect getaway driver, as he assists a criminal mastermind named Doc. After a while, though, he desires a life away from crime and seeks freedom from the boss. When a heist that is doomed to fail is taken on, he fears the worst. Baby Driver is one of those films that has achieved unbelievable success, but still sometimes flies under the radar.
Heist is another film that is a bit rougher than the other films on this list. The film follows a thief named Joe who is caught on security camera footage. He owes men money and has a wife that may be betraying him—his life is quickly falling apart. With his partner Bobby, Joe must complete one last, huge heist.
8. Jackie Brown
Jackie Brown is another heist film that follows a flight attendant named Jackie Brown who is busted for smuggling money for her arms dealer. Two federal agents want to bring down her arms dealer, and she is forced to cooperate with them—or else they think. In the double-cross of a lifetime, she works to make off with money and ditch both the agents and the crime boss.
9. Going In Style
Going in Style follows lifelong friends Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine), and Albert (Alan Arkin) as they decide to leave retirement when their pension funds are cancelled. In order to still provide for their families, they decide to embark on a crime spree to rob the bank that took their pensions away.
10. Logan Lucky
Logan Lucky, another heist comedy film, follows a man named Jimmy Logan as he teams up with his one-armed brother and his sister to steal money from the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Some issues start to emerge, and now the team must pull off the heist during the popular NASCAR race while simultaneously trying to outrun the FBI.
11. The Italian Job
Michael Caine. The Mini Cooper. Sixties Rome and London. If ever a movie oozed cool in every scene, it’s this one. Caine plays a career criminal who takes on a simple job – except it’s not so simple. With the help of a few fellow criminals, a couple of Mini Coopers and a lot of chutzpah, they’ll steal 4 million euros worth of Chinese gold.
