Synopsis


American Heist
A New Orleans mechanic's struggle to turn his back on crime is compromised by the unexpected return of his ex-con brother, who quickly gets him involved in a dangerous heist. James and Frankie were just teenagers when Frankie was convicted for shooting a cop, and sent to prison. Ten years later, James (Hayden Christensen) has finally put his life back in order. He's seeking the financing to open his own garage when he starts to rekindle a romance with his ex-flame Emily (Jordana Brewster). Their future together is looking bright until Frankie (Adrien Brody) reappears without warning, entangling his brother in a dangerous bank-robbery plot hatched by Sugar (Akon) and Ray (Tory Kittles), two enterprising criminals who make it clear that Frankie and Emily will suffer if James doesn't go along with their plans. Later, with the bank vault open and everything going as planned, an unexpected complication puts James' devotion to his troubled brother to the ultimate test. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Nothing really different about this "heist" movie than any other, it is all right but nothing spectacular. What was is more proof that Hayden Christensen can really act, I have been saying it forever and he can. That whole Star Wars thing was a fluke. Watch him in anything else and he is wonderful. The plot? His brother, Adrien Brody, gets out of jail and brings his baby brother into the thick of a heist. He tricked him into it (nice brother) The gang is typical, no type of different character. Things go south real quick, most of these crooks are pretty inept. Except for Christian, you pretty much hate the rest even his brother for being a moron.

    Another movie I trusted based on the cover and description. I wish I could go back in time and read my own review and know to NOT BUY THIS MOVIE. The bones for a decent movie were there and there were a few decent scenes, but in the end all I got out of this was a serious level of mistrust in my taste for movies.

    American Heist - I'm giving this a generous 2-stars. I didn't think the writing was that strong (dialog or plot), nor the characters very compelling. I would wait for this one to be in the bargain bin before picking it up or you may think that your wallet was a victim of the "American Heist."

    The story line was tired. The acting was either over done or WAYYYY under done. The characters were not believable. This is one movie I will probably never watch again.

    A fan of most action and horror movies. A Brody made the movie interesting, started out simple then went to war on the streets . The whole cast played the roles according.
