Well Worth Watching!!!
1 June 2016 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

The Pineville Heist begins with an aerial shot over the pristine forested land which sets the mood for the entire movie. The music was well chosen and immediately gives you a local feel pulling you right into the story. The story picks up right after a bank heist where a local teenager innocently stumbles into the robbers camp and from there all goes from bad to worse.

The cast chosen for this film complement each other enhancing genuine credibility to the story. Included with the intense suspense, the story involves intertwined evolving relationships and interactions amongst a father and son, a boy and his friends, a school teacher, a janitor, principal, sheriff, cops, good guys and bad guys.

I would have liked to have seen the story delve deeper into some of the characters personalities. This would have created more intensity identifying with them.

You quickly become engrossed into the movie as you follow the trail of the stolen money. Be ready for exciting plot twists and turns. This movie is a must see if you like a gripping story and thrilling suspense.

Kudos to the director Lee Chambers on his first feature film. . Is there a sequel in the works?...PH II ?
