Romantic heist movie
11 January 2019 | by sinful-2See all my reviews

This movie starts out pretty good and I found it quite interesting with the plan to rob a lot of gold. Unfortunately I found that as the movie progressed it became to much focused on the the two leads romance instead of details in the robbery. I find that is a pity and thought some of the romantic scenes just dragged on.

Midas Run was okay acted but nothing in directing or acting to write books about. Would I recommend this movie? Well if it is on the television then it is an okay time killer, but it is not a movie I would spend long time searching for. There are both better and worse movies in this category and this comes out as pretty average.
