American Heist

(2014) ★★½

Sky Movies Premiere: PREMIERE Friday 25 September, 10am and 11.50pm

Big Easy auto mechanic Hayden Christensen not best pleased to have big blacksheep brother Adrien Brody back in his life. “I’m gonna make things right,” says Brody, out of prison after serving 10 years. The bank heist goes about as smoothly as Al Pacino’s Dog Day Afternoon in a fatalistic crime pic remindful at times of Dead Presidents and Steven Soderbergh’s underrated thriller The Underneath (both of which are far superior to this).

“Open your eyes,” says the menacing but oddly charismatic gang leader Tory Kittles. “It’s the banks who are robbing you.” Brody for one doesn’t buy it: “He’s like Manson, man.” If he hadn’t already made Predators, this generic exercise might seem like slumming for Oscar winner Brody. For Christensen, it’s a big step up from Jumper and Takers.
