Heist Movie Trailer Review: The Last Heist (2016)

The Last Heist (2016) is set to shake up the heist genre when it is released on June 16, 2016. The film centers on a heist with a twist. A serial killer named Bernard (Henry Rollins) kills bank robbers one by one as the police attempt to end a standoff. The film has the potential to add another layer to the heist genre, as the serial killer derails the plans. Director Mike Mendez is known for his work in the horror genre (Tales of Halloween (2015) and The Gravedancers (2006)).

While the movie is a genre cross-over, which may be interesting, from the trailer the film appears like it has limited potential. The sound effects will not be surprising for the genre with the average gun shots and pleas for mercy. Henry Rollins will either make or break the film, as his character separates the film from other heist and slasher films. The Last Heist has the potential to be scary with a serial killer on the loose, adding a different perspective to the heist genre.
