The Top 10 Robberies In Movies
The American film industry took a giant leap forward in 1903, with the release of The Great Train Robbery, a thrilling 11-minute movie about a Wild West holdup. The silent picture was the first “heist” film ever made and it has since inspired a legion of imitators who have gone on to tell bigger and better tales of cunning criminal capers and impossibly big scores. We’ve decided to pay tribute to this exhilarating genre by presenting a list of the top 10 most electrifying criminal schemes ever executed on film. Our selections are based upon the size of the score, the bravado of the criminals and the complexity of the job. We’ve also included corresponding movie clips for each of the highlighted films to allow you to watch the thievery unfold.
