Top Ten Heist Movies


The Top TenXW

1Ocean's Eleven

This movie deserves the first position... brad pitt action was superb...

No doubt the best heist film...

Movie was good but not one of the best of heist movies


This is the creme de la creme of heist movies. What Michael Mann crafted with the likes of "Thief", he perfected with "Heat". This movie has everything from top to bottom: an intricate story that has many layers, top tier acting from the lead actors as well as the supporting cast, style and beautiful cinematography, and a level of realism not often seen in this genre of movie.

I can not believe that I am sitting here today, even as a young teenager, and I don't see this as number one this is michael manns masterpiece other than his reacent movie public enemies.. but I mean common people what are five year olds voting this is the hiest of a life time - paynterboyy335

Ocean's Eleven was crap. Why is it number one? And where is Reservoir Dogs on the list? I only chose this because it's close to being as good as Reservoir Dogs, but no quite.

Movie was great! The story is what made it so great. I kinda wish there was some more heists in it but it was great.

4Reservoir Dogs

This was the best damn good film I had ever seen at all...
I liked it because I thought this was described how the criminal ways of life actually and how their daily activities in gang... Laugh out loud

WHat is resevoir dogs doing at 11? An absolute MASTERPIECE. The the cinematography the screenwriting the actors.. And who can forget the ear scene.

Why the hell is ENTRAPMENT on this list? Reservoir Dogs is wayy better.

5The Real McCoy

A bit unrealistic but still my favorite Heist movie ever. Kim Basinger was gorgeous in it. I love the storyline and the acting was decent - Irina2932

6The Usual Suspects

Funny and very entertaining. Sigourney Weaver's performance was fantastic but the whole cast did a great job! - AtlasUniverse

God, I love this movie! Sad I dind't find it many genres but at least here and then it's #5, great! Watch it! It's funny and simply awesome! - toptenaccount

8The Town

This movie was really good and I enjoyed every second it.

Definitely one of my favorite films

This should be at least in the top 3

It is funny in a way too - lazypants

10The Italian Job

Really A Worth watchable Heist Movie. I have seen it around 5 times so far. The way they plan to rob the place and the tactics they use there are really most awesome scenes in the movie.

Heist Lovers. Check it out yourselves

The original and the best

The Contenders


Such a great cast of characters, cinematography, and some great plot twists.

One of my favorites 😊

14The Thomas Crown Affair

Tight plot, superb camera work, excellent acting. A shoddy script begets a shoddy heist and shoddy this is not. Extra point for soundtrack.
