Storyline

Neil Skinner, once a San Diego racetrack-security consultant, is now an ex-con who was framed by his ex-partner, Ebbet. Ebbet now controls track security as well as Neil's ex-girlfriend, Sheila. Neil now wants to revenge himself by stealing the day's take, and he enlists the help of several track regulars, including a janitor, a security guard, an and an ambulance driver. The money switches hands, cars chase each other over the Mexican border and back, and it's a struggle to see who will out-con whom. Written by Kathy Li

Hapless heist
21 January 2004 | by (ny) – See all my reviews

I'm really not much of a Brosnan fan, but I was impressed with his early work in Fourth Protocol with M. Caine...so I thought I'd take a chance and buy The Heist...thinking it must be a FAIRLY decent movie.WRONG!!! The opening scene with Brosnan spitting out on the prison yard was an IMMEDIATE turn-off. A thoroughly substandard production almost totally lacking in anything that would make you want to pay to see. Unimaginative and insipid at worst...boring and predictable at best...and where did they find his love interest? Short, fat, ugly and old.What was up with that!? I though ole Pierce was supposed to be a "ladies man". The supporting characters only succeeded in bringing what little of a movie there might have been down in flames.Even Skerrit was horrendous! All in all a thorough disaster to be avoided at ALL costs!!!Poor music score as well.
