Movie Review – The Hurricane Heist (2018)

The Hurricane Heist, 2018.

Directed by Rob Cohen.

Starring Maggie Grace, Toby Kebbell, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Randy Couture, Melissa Bolona, and Jamie Andrew Cutler.

Synopsis:

Thieves attempt a massive heist against the U.S. Treasury as a Category 5 hurricane approaches one of its Mint facilities.

The Hurricane Heist is only a film through technicality. It’s a series of narrative images that when placed next to one another create an illusion of movement. It’s a film much in the same way Geostorm is a film, or Independence Day: Resurgence. For the sake of this review, it is a film, it isn’t, but for the sake of semantics, it is.

Certain “films” have a pre-destined end point: bargain bins in your local Tesco, the untouched shelves of DVDs that litter Poundland, stuffed between a D-list celebrity’s workout and a Steven Seagal euro-action flick.

Top 10 Movies Inspired by Games

Hollywood’s fascination with the gaming industry is pervasive. One only has to consider the top 10 movies inspired by games to understand just how much of an influence games have on our cultural zeitgeist. Consider the following movies that drew their inspiration from top-tier games:

Assassins Creed Released on December 21, 2016

It had an estimated budget of $125 million and grossed $240,697,856 worldwide. The game takes place in Spain in 1492 with the Knights of the Templar Order are searching for the Apple of Eden. The action fast forwards to the 20th century, and that’s where Hollywood takes over in none other than Texas. Enter Callum Lynch who escapes death by lethal injection and is called upon to destroy the Templar organization. Gripping stuff!

The Hurricane Heist review – breezily over-the-top weather thriller

Toby Kebbell keeps the pedal to the metal as a storm expert trying to warn the authorities in this daft but enjoyable thriller

Nothing more than straight-to-iTunes dross was expected of this heist thriller. Actually, it offers up some pretty robust entertainment, with enjoyable performances. Director Rob Cohen – a veteran of Fast & Furious and The Mummy franchises – keeps his pedal in close contact with the metal throughout.

Brit Toby Kebbell showcases a serviceable American accent as the handsome young Alabama storm expert, Will, who tries in vain to warn the authorities that a terrifying hurricane is about to hit the state. He has reason enough to fear and hate freak weather conditions: his tempestuous backstory is laid out in the pre-credit sequence. But, however complacent the authorities are, a gang of desperate robbers does appreciate the danger and is fixing to use the meteorological crisis – with its inevitable suspension

‘The Hurricane Heist’ Review

Stars: Toby Kebbell, Maggie Grace, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Melissa Bolona, Christian Contreras, James Cutler, Ben Cross, Ed Birch | Written by Scott Windhauser, Jeff Dixon | Directed by Rob Cohen

It appears to be the season for ridiculously dumb, yet surprisingly entertaining popcorn movies. Hot on the heels of Pacific Rim: Uprising comes The Hurricane Heist, in which, yes, a heist takes place during a hurricane. It’s difficult to imagine a sillier plot outside of Snakes on a Plane, but, like that film, The Hurricane Heist takes its ridiculous premise and runs with it, delivering about as much fun as it’s possible to have with a film this stupid.

Every action hero needs a tragic backstory, so here we get two for the price of one, as young brothers Will and Breeze (yep, there’s a character called Breeze in a hurricane movie) witness their father getting crushed by

The Hurricane Heist movie review: ’tis an ill wind that blows no minds

MaryAnn’s quick take… A peanut-butter-in-my-chocolate movie, this Die Hard meets Twister monster is so ludicrous it comes all the way back around to being awesome and hilarious. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(learn more about this)

T he Hurricane Heist! It’s Twister meets Die Hard! And even though, through some negative Hollywood magic, the end result is much less than the sum of its parts, those parts are such perfect films that, even mashed up into something greatly diminished, that end result is still pretty good. Or, rather, so bad it’s good. That’s positive Hollywood magic! Why are some bad movies just plain bad, and other bad movies somehow awesome and hilarious? It’s a mystery.

This is a peanut-butter-in-my-chocolate movie, with both action-movie

The Hurricane Heist Review

The Hurricane Heist is a curiously bland film. When one opts for a title as knowingly ludicrous as The Hurricane Heist, you expect something trashy and splashy, but in a fun, silly way. Nobody goes into The Hurricane Heist expecting high art. Nor should you. It’s called The Hurricane Heist after all. Delusions of grandeur are strictly void. And there are certainly moments of over-the-top ridiculousness to be found in the newest film from Rob Cohen, the director behind the original The Fast and the Furious and other less-than-noteworthy titles like xXx, Stealth, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and Alex Cross. Sitting at otherwise-agreeable 103 minutes, however, Cohen’s latest film is an amusingly absurd action-thriller that’s stretched out at least an hour longer than it has any right to be. Suffice to say, it doesn’t blow you away.

Do I need to explain the plot of The Hurricane Heist?

Doctor Doom Movie Will Be A Genre Mashup Inspired By The Winter Soldier

After season 1 of Legion blew my mind, I’m ready to saddle up with whatever Noah Hawley decides to make next. So, it’s with a huge sense of anticipation that we’re learning more about his Doctor Doom movie. The project is still very much in the planning stages and hasn’t been greenlit yet, but Hawley is talking a big game of mixed genres and political tension.

In an interview with Observer, he set out his pitch by explaining:

“As with Legion, my thought was that the [superhero] genre has a certain kind of movie covered, but what else can the genre do. What’s interesting to me about Doom’s character is he’s the king of an Eastern European country and is there a version of this that is more of a political thriller that mixes genre?”
