A crack team of specialists. An invaluable prize. All with a plan that just can’t fail. Welcome to twists and turns of heist films, a genre near and dear to our hearts that just begs for more bags of popcorn.

Join Matt, Erik, Steve, and Hawk as they take a look at some of the best heist films – “The Sting,” “Inception,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” and “Heat.” What makes a good heist film? What makes each of these films unique? What are our favourite moments? And what films missed our lists?
