Movie Info

When their attempt to rob a casino owned by the feared gangster Pope (Robert De Niro) goes awry and a shootout ensues, Vaughn (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Cox (Dave Bautista) are forced to flee on foot and hijack city Bus 657 and take the passengers hostage. Now, in a high speed chase, Vaughn will not only have to outwit the police, led by Officer Bajos (Gina Carano) who are in hot pursuit, but he will have to contend with Pope's maniacal right hand man, Dog (Morris Chestnut), in order to make it through the day alive. But we quickly learn that things are not what they seem, and Vaughn has more than one card up his sleeve.

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (20)

  • The heist in Heist is pretty pedestrian, and the film turns into Die Hard-on-a-bus with a couple of so-so twists and serviceable spasms of action. If that's what you're looking for, rent Speed instead.

  • Everything is dully routine, with characters much too composed in volatile situations to be believed.

    Nov 13, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • As throwbacks go, it's more bearable than shoulder pads.

    Nov 13, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • As vapidly generic as its title, British director Scott Mann's "Heist" is a by-the-numbers crime thriller that squanders a decent cast, including Robert De Niro, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Dave Bautista.

    Nov 13, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Whatever its flaws, "Heist" is to be commended for repeatedly finding ways to distract us from them.

    Nov 12, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Caught between genre potboiler and would-be human drama, "Heist" doesn't have a mark to hit. But it leaves some good impressions.

Audience Reviews for Heist

    If you paid money to see "Heist", there's little doubt you do feel ripped off. This is one of the least intelligent crime films of the year -- dependent entirely upon chance and the inability to see anything other than what's squarely in front of the characters' faces. Although there was some mildly entertaining acting at times, "Heist" is dumb and just doesn't play. Skip it.

    Entertaining and full of suspense, Heist is an adrenaline packed thriller. After losing his job a father who's desperate for money to pay for his daughter's medical treatments joins a crew that knocks over a dirty casino, but when the job goes bad they end up hijacking a bus and are pursued by gangsters and police. Starring Jeffery Dean Morgan, Robert De Niro, Gina Carano, and Dave Bautista, the cast is fairly solid. And the director does a great job at making the bus standoff intense and exciting. The writing however, is rather weak; as it relies on a lot of tropes and has trouble bringing together the various plot threads. A little formulaic, Heist may want for originality, but it still delivers plenty of thrills.

    Formulaic and cliched and it tries so much to be up there with the big guns but, ultimately, fails. Robert De Niro cannot save this, sadly. It showed promise but failed to ultimately deliver.
