SYNOPSIS
Based on a true story, Masterminds follows the riotous misadventures of unlikely anti-hero David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) as he pulls off one of the largest robberies in U.S. history. The trouble begins when David, a trusted armored-truck driver for Loomis Fargo, falls for beautiful guard Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig). After she quits her job, Kelly, egged on by local petty thief Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson), persuades David to clean out the companys vault in Charlotte, North Carolina.
After stuffing a van with more than $17 million of stolen cash, David delivers the money to Chambers gang and flees to Mexico to lie low while the FBI searches for the culprits. Steve and his wife Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) buy a mansion with their ill-gotten wealth and dispatch overzealous hit man Mike McKinney (Jason Sudeikis) to Mexico to kill David. Once David discovers the betrayal, he returns to North Carolina on a mission to rescue his true love and expose Steve as the heists real mastermind.

The combination of Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon didnt create a furore in Ghostbusters earlier this year. But theyve come together again in Masterminds.

A middling cops-and-robbers comedy, Jared Hess` Masterminds falls short of the potential of its premise, which takes loose inspiration from a real crime. This was the 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery, when a group of crooks took more than $US17 million ($A22.6 million) from a vault in North Carolina. At the time, it was one of the largest cash robberies committed on US soil. ...Read full review
Though based on a true story, Masterminds is pure, insipid, popcorn fare that makes the tale seem totally fabricated. The true story, we are told is, the largest cash robbery in the history of US crime, committed by a bunch of dumb, goofy characters who stole $17.3 million from the vault of a cash handling company. ...Read full review
