      Brad Wheeler Globe and Mail American Heist, I want my 94 minutes back. Rated: 1/4 Jul 24, 2015 Full Review Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times Despite a few strong emotional beats, the crime drama "American Heist" proves as undistinguished as its generic title. Jul 24, 2015 Full Review Jim Slotek Toronto Sun American Heist has straight-to-video written all over it. Once there, I recommend you skip directly to the last act if you decide to watch it at all. Rated: 2/5 Jul 23, 2015 Full Review Matt Hudson What I Watched Tonight The movie suffers from underdeveloped characters, a lack of originality and an unnecessary social commentary. Half good, half bad. Rated: 5/10 Oct 20, 2018 Full Review Lisa Twang The New Paper (Singapore) Just play Grand Theft Auto 5 instead. Rated: 2/5 Sep 20, 2017 Full Review Mike Scott Times-Picayune Hayden Christensen and Adrien Brody turn in solid performances, but this by-the-numbers exercise does little to distinguish itself from any number of better crime thrillers. Rated: 2/5 Sep 8, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

      Mike T This entire movie was amazing, great cast, great acting, awesome story. 👍🏻👍🏻 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/25/23 Full Review fargo n Bad, bad script. Stupid story. Bad chase scenes, bad acting. Foolish dialogue, etc, etc. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member While this film would very much like to be a comedy about a jazz-loving car mechanic whose petty crim brother comes out of prison and keeps trying to drag him into ineptly criminal schemes, sadly it isn't. Gratuitous tonal shifts, cliche, and dubious racial stereotyping make it a cringe to watch. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member There is decent production value and better acting then expected, but not enough to make this film stand out. However, Adrien Brody is terribly miscast...again. An average and passable heist thriller which will be forgotten shortly after the credits roll. 5/10 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Nick E Great performances by Christensen and Brody. I'm only giving it five Stars because they both deserve it. But what the fuck are either of them doing in this movie. Especially hayden who has the fit for big budget films. Christensen really needs to better films and start getting cast more because there is a lot of potential there. Same goes for Oscar winning Brody who has no business being in a movie like this. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/27/20 Full Review Audience Member Cheesy at the best. Lazy script, bad acting. Don't waste your time watching this movie.
