Based upon a true story wherein a gang of friends managed to infiltrate one of the biggest credit card companies and pull off the biggest and most audacious diamond heists ever committed.Written by
Plastic is a heist movie with such obnoxious characters. You actually root for the heavies to give these young men their comeuppance.
Four British university students. Sam (Ed Speleers) Fordy (Will Poulter) Yatesey (Alfie Allen) and Rafa (Sebastian De Souza) scam dirty rich old men by camcording them having sex and taking their credit card details which they go on a spending spree with.
However one victim was an accountant working for a gangster called Marcel (Thomas Kretschmann) who does not take kindly being hit by them. In order to live the boys must pay interest to Marcel in weekly installments of £250,000 with their credit card scams.
Alternatively Marcel would wipe the debt clean if they pay him £2 million in two weeks.
Given how violent Marcel's men are. The boys go to Miami and screw up as they go to a strip bar where their first sting on a mark unravels as they get caught using a stolen credit card. They then think of another plan by stealing some jewellery by pretending to be acting for a rich sultan to a jeweller.
This is a dumb film with unlikeable characters who you have no sympathy with. Especially as some of them then try to double cross each other. Rather stupid given that all of them are in real peril with Marcel. The directors also display a misogynistic streak in this film. The women are just adornments, mainly strippers or prostitutes or airheads who are mainly there to bare their breasts.
