$ (aka The Heist)

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Detailing in meticulous fashion a perfect bank robbery, committed by Beatty and Hawn after he, as a security expert, has installed an apparently impenetrable safe in a Hamburg bank. The comedy sits uneasily with the admittedly efficient action scenes, although at least here we have none of the usual Brooks sermonising to dilute the brew. It's all a bit flashy - lots of emphasis on technology, and shot in a mosaic of short, snappy scenes that seem to converge only after a while - but entertaining if you can stand the pace.
