We watched the David Mamet scripted movie Heist. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The film stars Gene Hackman as the leader of a loosely affiliated group of professional thieves, who is looking to retire. Others are trying to rope him into at least one more big job.

The film has most of the pluses and minuses of a Mamet script. The dialogue is readily recognizable as his style. The movie is also well within the traditional plot of this sort of film with surprising changes of direction and potential and real double-crosses. A good cast does a fine job throughout.

If you are looking for a good movie and like either Mamet or the genre, I am sure you would like this movie. I doubt you will love it however. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 78.
