Where can one start with a review of The Heist. It is a well crafted movie from begining to end. All the colorful characters are well defined and exciting to watch. There is a scene in the middle of the movie where the bad guys are attempting to figure out how Neil "Pierce" is going to rob the track and are able to predict a great many thing and still Neil is able to outwit them all and the cop who is trying to put him back in jail. The Gipsy Kings version of "My Way" at the end is great. Pierce Brosnan loved this story so much and the whole making of a caper movie in general and that this is one of the reasons he went on to develop and star in the remake of "The Thomas Crown Affair", but thats another movie review.

A fun flick, with beautiful Brosnan growing into his bones

as he hit age 35. An elegant man playing a small-time hood

is a nice contrast. Note the hair slicked back. Audrey

Wood plays the bubble-headed moll who divides her favors

between Brosnan and Skerrit, showing little emotion for either

guy. Nice seedy race track atmosphere, pretty hot love scenes,

and a light hearted adio accompanied by the Spanish version

of "My Way". Recommended.

While I do not rate Pierce Brosnan as one of the all-time great actors, I must say that for an action movie, tthis is one of my favorites. Pierce possesses wit and charm that you would not see again until 1999's Thomas Crown Affair." The plot is defined and the action is top-notch. Recommended for all, especially those of you who adore Pierce brosnan.

This is a really fun movie, and amazingly similar in plot to the remake of *Ocean's 11*, which came many years later.

Brosnan's character is like Danny Ocean, having spent his jail time plotting to get back his girl and get even with the guy who sent him to jail and walked away with the beauty. A cat-and-mouse game follows leading to the finale, where Brosnan's big plan is enacted.

Definitely worth watching.

I am so glad that I bought this movie -- Pierce Brosnan really knows his way around women and horses. I enjoyed the story.

The Heist (Not To Be Confused With Heist), is nothing more than an average "heist" movie. Is it better than The Score or the aforementioned Heist? No, it is not. Is it on par with Loophole, The Friends of Eddie Coyle, Straight Time or Blood & Wine? No, it is not. It is nowhere even close to The Bank Job or Parker, either.

This is nothing but a lighthearted caper mpovie that's plot is totally unrealistic. Skinner is a man who was framed for a crime he did not commit. He plans to get even with the former business partner that set him up (Tom Skeritt). None of the characters in this movie are sympathetic and I really did not care for any of them. Not even the suave debonair Brosnan. This movie is not horrible, it's just not good.

I give it Three Stars for trying to be a good movie. The day before I'd seen Layer Cake and (Ironically Another Similar Genre Film With An Actor That Would Go On To Play James Bond) it was so much better. Another thing I did not like about this movie was the female lead was not that attractive. To me this has got to be of import to a movie like this. The late great actors Noble Willingham and Robert Prosky were good, but other than that this movie fell far short of its goal.

On top of which, the plot was difficult to understand. He returns the money he went through all the trouble to steal? Prosky's character, Dancer (A Stupid Name If Ever There Was One), wins a big haul at the races but we don't know for how much. I get the idea that he wins the money that Skinner returns to the race track. But this is never made clear. This was a major flaw in the plot.

There were some nice shots of San Diego, however. This is the 20th review overall for this movie and the third Three-Star review.
