Cheesy, ridiculous, and a wild rollercoaster of action.
10 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

The Hurricane Heist (4 out of 5 stars).

Hurricane Heist is an example of cheesy stupid fun. If you are into those type of movies were you could leave any logic of realism out the window. Director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious, xXx) managed to deliver an exciting action thriller. It is loud, action packed, and has some decent visual effects. It is a bit of a combination of films like Hard Rain, Twister, and Mad Max.

A simple plot of paramilitary robbers trying to steal old dollar bills from the treasury during a hurricane. Which makes it the perfect cover during the storm. While Casey (Maggie Grace), Will (Toby Kebbell), and Breeze (Ryan Kwanten) will have to do whatever it takes to stop the bad guys from getting away with the money.

What I like about the film is it is action packed. If you are an action enthusiast and don't really care for a movie with no real story than this is the film for you. You have car chases, gun shoot outs, and more chases during an intense storm with cars and debris blowing at characters. You have car rims blowing around the air hitting people like razor blades. Characters escaping the bad guys when a storm breaks through the mall window. Than, there was a thrilling semi truck chase in the climax as they try to escape the eye of the storm. The film can be cheesy with its action and get ridiculous with any realism of this hurricane. But its all pure stupid fun that is suppose to entertain which is what it did.

Toby Kebbell and Ryan Kwanten were okay with their characters. Playing brothers that had a tragic past after their encounter with a hurricane left them distant. Maggie Grace was good as a character that is loyal to her job and will do whatever it takes to stop the bad guys.

What I did not like about the film is the dialogue. It is cheesy and horribly written. Not sure, if people talk like that in real life. But it was terribly written and the script written by two writers could have written out a better script.

Overall, The Hurricane Heist is a good action film. It is not meant to be taken seriously with ridiculous action and logic. It is stupid fun, loud, action packed, and a wild rollercoaster ride with the main characters going from one action set piece to another from fighting bad guys during an intense storm with strong winds ripping buildings apart, a flash flood hitting the streets, and a giant wall of clouds from the eye of the storm.

I recommend seeing it on the big screen if you are looking for a cheesy action film that's a wild ride with cheesy dialogue and no plot.
