Top Ten Heist Movies


The Top Ten

1 Ocean's Eleven

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

V 2 Comments
2 Heat

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.

3 Inception

Awful movie with no plot line and too much cgi and 3 and half hours too long what a joke

My all time favorite movie whatever genre it may be.. Nolan rocks...


The inception of the cinema after so many years...

4 Reservoir 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

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

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

5 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 - Irina2932

6 The Usual Suspects
7 The Town

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

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

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

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

I love this movie. My all time favorite - Szonana
