Editorial Reviews

Inspired by a real bank robbery, this true crime drama follows a gang of thieves who think they devised the perfect plan, and the St. Louis police officers who uncovered their cunning operation. Steve McQueen stars as the getaway driver for a group of smart and meticulous criminals. After performing practice runs and going over every minute detail, they think their scheme is fail-safe. But as they enter the bank on that fateful day, their master plans quickly unravel. Witness the action and nerve-wracking excitement in this shoot em up thriller!

4.0 out of 5 stars How NOT to rob a bank June 9, 2010
Format:DVD
THE GREAT ST. LOUIS BANK ROBBERY is easily one of my favorite public domain films. It's a noirish 'B' unit semi-documentary headlined by an up-and-comer who already had star power.

Young Steve McQueen is featured in this taut little true story of a heist gone terribly wrong. Shot on-location where these events actually unfolded, a mostly unknown cast includes non-actors: bank personnel, citizens and law enforcement responders who were involved on the day this hold-up occurred. The first hour of the story includes (sometimes unnecessary) character development, the balance is the actual crime.

McQueen portrays an expelled college athlete who throws in as wheel man for three ex-cons planning a bank caper. Events however propel him inside Southwest Bank, as what should've been a fairly simple robbery becomes a frightening siege. Recommended for all classic era crime movie fans.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.
