Hollywood movies based on robbery tend to begin with an ambitious individual who has an intelligent plan to take the ultimate shortcut – work really hard for one night and be set for life. We’ve all had those moments where we daydreamed about what it would be like to do just that. These six films helped us live out those wild fantasies paired with intense action and tons of drama to make the perfect form of entertainment:
Bonnie & Clyde (1967)
The deliriously stylish and unnaturally confident Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway) and Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) took our fantasies of not giving a care in the world to a whole new level.
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Part of Tarantino’s classics, this one has a special place as the iconic director’s breakthrough debut. With a unique style and brilliant performances it set the path for the next decade of American cinema.
Die Hard (1988)
One of the most memorable action films of all time and one of Bruce Willis’ best performances, John McTiernan’s Die Hard is a classic that cannot me missed.
The Ocean’s Franchise (2001 – 2018)
The Ocean’s series, edited, directed, and produced by Steven Soderbergh, can rightfully be considered the most successful and event the best American heist film franchise.
Now You See Me (2013)
In Louis Leterrier’s directorial, a group of exceptionally talented street magicians called The Horsemen pull of an impeccable heist with just their tricks and sleight of hand.
