A terrific heist story

For those who know my comments, they already know that I am a great heist stories lover. Armored truck heists in particular. This episode is a great one in this field. The modus operandi used by the gangsters is very similar as the ones you watched in LE PACHA, CRUEL GUN STORY, L'HOMME DE MARRAKECH, and WORLD IN MY POCKET: great armored truck heist tales. With of course, THEY CAME TO ROB LAS VEGAS, but with another way to hijack the truck loaded with the loot.

I crave for heists, that's the reason why I Watch the most of crime series, not speaking of the films, as you can guess.

Besides this, HAWAI FIVE 0 is a fabulous TV show that will remain one of best ever. When I was a kid, I only realize that I did not see so many of them. Now, I can...I have all of them. The whole batch.
