First-rate thriller with a troubled star.
3 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This rare French-Canadian heist thriller stars Jan-Michael Vincent as a top-notch art thief with dreams of retirement with his five year old daughter. When she is kidnapped by an unknown party, he has 48 hours to steal a Van Gogh for her ransom.

During this time, Jan-Michael Vincent's career and personal life were just beginning to crumble. Having done B grade films like Hit List and Xtro 2, his drunken performances, though amusing and funny, killed what could have been great films....at least for Hit List. Nothing could save Xtro 2. His performance is The Final Heist was terrific.

His wasted talent in the late 80s and early 90s is revived here. He looked youthful and was energetic. His scenes with Gabrielle Lazure were great and they play well off each other. The Final Heist is a very stylish thriller beautifully shot with rich use of color. Everything and everyone looks great. Even the feel of the movie. It didn't feel like it was made-for-TV.

You won't find this movie on DVD and is almost just as hard to find on VHS. However, if you look on youtube, you'll get lucky. If you're a JMV fan. Check this one out. You won't be disappointed!
