Bandits stars Billy Bob Thornton and Bruce Willis as two unlikely partners in crime who simplify the process of robbing banks by confronting the bank managers in their homes, spend the night at their homes, and arrive at the bank the following morning with their targets. The film is inspired by the real-life crimes of bank robbers Terry Lee Connor and Joseph Daugherty. Bandits is one of the best bank robbery movies because of the amazing chemistry and comedic timing of the three lead characters.
A crew of childhood friends makes their living by robbing banks in The Town. During a job, the masked bank robbers take assistant manager Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall) hostage, but release her unharmed. Things get complicated when one of the masked thieves Doug (Ben Affleck) begins courting her secretly. On top of that, they are being pursued by hard-nosed FBI Agent Adam Frawley (Jon Hamm). In typical heist movie fashion, the expert crew plans one last job that is going to set them up for life, in this case, robbing Fenway Park.
Career criminal Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro) plans his last big score while simultaneously trying to straighten out one of his crew who has stepped out of line. Meanwhile, he is being hunted by LAPD detective Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino) who is dealing with personal problems of his own. Despite being on opposite sides of the law, the two men share a mutual respect. What makes Heat great is the level of authenticity the film has. Director Michael Mann filmed the movie on location wherever possible rather than on studio sets, and the actors were also given extensive weapons training which pays off in the iconic shoot-out scene. Moreover, it was dubbed the best bank robbery movie ever by real-life bank robber Shon Hopwood. Who can argue with that 1e1e36bf2d
