If you love Heist movies, then you’ll love this one!
The Rocky of crime thrillers, but instead of feeling uplifted, the movie leaves you feeling empty (which is the point).
Fantastic crime thriller with great cinematography and unforgettable performances, score is wonderful, no real surprises but it still works
can't help but nod furiously at the accuracy of these people. they all feel like real people in helpless uncontrollable real life moments.
Incredibly electric and so real with its crime world specifics
The film goes for realism which leads to a bit of boredom here and there but its a well done character study and heist film
Heist movie with more emphasis on the individual doing the stealing instead of the whole gang. Enjoyed it, cool 80s synth soundtrack too.
This is a excellent crime thriller by Michael Mann
Utterly spectacular soundtrack, really grounded acting, and incredibly tense and well shot. I enjoyed almost every second
Nobody knows how to get the anxiety flowing with a cheesy 80’s synth like Michael Mann. The opening heist alone is a cinematic masterpiece.
