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.

I really like good natured caper movies. This was a great example. Pierce Brosnan's character had four years to plot and plan the perfect heist, knock off a race track and make sure his ex-partner pays for framing him. And he walks away laughing.
The story goes that Brosnan had so much fun with this movie he went on to do the Thomas Crown Affair.
