Poor Man's "GoodFellas"
8 September 2001 | by (Tainan, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

This movie takes the Lufthansa heist, which was a part of "Goodfellas", and expands it into a whole movie. While this is not a criticism in itself (and it's interesting to see how different screenwriters, actors, and directors handle the same factual material), "The Big Heist" can't hold a stylistic candle to G-F although it does contain much more detailed information; G-Fs, as far as I can remember, never mentioned the existence of Jimmy's (DeNiro's) children, one of whom plays a major role in "Heist".
