We gave it a C

As generic as its title, Scott Mann’s instantly forgettable thriller stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a desperate blackjack dealer whose sick daughter will die unless he can come up with 300 grand to pay for her treatments. The solution? Ripping off his crooked boss at the casino (Robert De Niro in paycheck mode). The heist in Heist is pretty pedestrian, and the film turns into Die Hard-on-a-bus with a couple of so-so twists and serviceable spasms of action. If that’s what you’re looking for, rent Speed instead. C
