Zonder dat ze het van elkaar weten, zijn drie medewerkers van hetzelfde museum al jaren gefascineerd door hetzelfde schilderij: The Maiden. Roger (Christopher Walken), hoofd beveiliging oostvleugel, Charles (Morgan Freeman), gids, en George (William H. Macy), nachtwaker, leren elkaar voor het eerst echt kennen wanneer de nieuwe curator hun favoriete kunstwerk dreigt te laten vervangen. De drie radeloze mannen nemen een gewaagd besluit: Als insiders zijn ze perfect geplaatst om te verhinderen dat The Maiden hen ontstolen wordt door... The Maiden te stelen! Geen koud kunstje, want je kunt de drie toch echt geen criminele meesterbreinen noemen... Wat volgt is een van de sympathiekste en meest gedurfde kunstroven aller tijden... Een hilarische, hartverwarmende misdaadcomedy met drie Hollywoodreuzen die zich met zichtbaar plezier van hun luchtigste kant laten zien.

Reviews
  • Blueprintreview.co.uk: The Heist is charming and fun with a to-die-for cast that will keep you entertained.If not a lad's night in movie, it certainly fits the bill as a date movie, especially for the more mature film fans out there!
  • EyeForFilm.co.uk: It's a light-hearted caper that makes for undemanding viewing.
  • FilmCriticsUnited.com: The heist sequence itself was done so well and was so much fun to watch.
  • Filmstalker.co.uk: With strong direction, good scripting for the most part, and some excellent casting, The Heist does turn out to be an enjoyable light hearted film.
  • FlickeringMyth.com: The main cast are really great to watch as they seem to be having a lot of fun; it's a quirky film and they each bring that to their roles.
  • ReelFilm.com: A gentle, easygoing comedy that benefits substantially from the efforts of its three leads - with Walken's refreshingly down-to-earth work anchoring the film on an impressively consistent basis. Freeman and Macy are predictably stellar in their respective roles, with the latter's scene-stealing turn standing as an ongoing highlight.
  • Poffysmoviemania.com: A quaint little heist comedy, with a nifty romantic resolution.
  • Altass.blogspot.nl: The Heist does a lot to distinguish itself from the crowd by focusing a lot more on the characters and their relationships to the art rather than the heist itself. A lot of audiences should enjoy it.
  • Watchtingthedetectives.blogspot.nl: presents three of the most talented actors working today in a gentle, well-mannered comedy that's populated with believable characters.
