Top Ten Heist Movies

The Top Ten
1 Ocean's Eleven
2 Heat

This is the crème de la crème 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 fell off my chair when I saw Ocean's Eleven at number one. It has a very commercial feel to it and has no class.

Heat, on the other hand, is a masterpiece.

3 Inception

Though I think Inception is the best movie of all time (and coming from a professional movie critic that's saying a lot), even if I liked other movies more like Heat (which is good though nowhere near Inception), I would have to grudgingly admit that Inception is better.

The team Cobb assembles is so amazing and interesting. The job itself is the hardest but so cool to see them try to pull off.

It isn't just a heist movie, where most of the other movies on here have no depth or other attributes that make them more interesting than the boring plot that is: Assemble team, team pull off heist, the end. Inception is so much more than that, so of course it gets my vote for number one.

4 Reservoir Dogs

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

What is Reservoir Dogs doing at 11? An absolute masterpiece. The cinematography, the screenwriting, the actors. And who can forget the ear scene.

5 The Usual Suspects
6 The 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.

7 Heartbreakers

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

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

Hilarious, especially Sigourney Weaver as the Russian woman and the scene in the Russian restaurant was absolutely worth the watch.

8 The Town

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

This is my second favorite heist film, with Firestorm and Avenged in first and third place.

9 Dog Day Afternoon
10 The 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 the soundtrack.

Rene Russo and Pierce Brosnan have great chemistry, and the heist scene is really good.

I love this movie. My all-time favorite.

The Contenders
11 The Italian Job

Really a worth watching heist movie. I have seen it around five times so far. The way they plan to rob the place and the tactics they use there are really the most awesome scenes in the movie.

Heist lovers. Check it out yourselves.

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