Download The Hurricane Heist
a5c7b9f00b Thieves attempt a massive heist against the U.S. Treasury as a Category 5 hurricane approaches one of its Mint facilities.
A passable plot is obliterated from the very start by terrible writing and abysmal acting. It's set in the USA but clearly filmed in England, with English actors whose American accents range from awful to even worse. I used to play Starsky & Hutch with my friends as kids, and I'm confident our accents and dialogue would stand up to what's on offer here.
It's telling that producer and provider Sky has set the film up so that, unlike every other offering on its platform, you can't fast forward or rewind, and that, when you press pause, there is no information on how far through the film you are or (this is what I wanted to know) how long is left.
I can't categorically say this is the worst film I've ever seen, because I've seen Spawn, and whilst I've entirely forgotten the content of that effort, I do recall it was very, very poor indeed. But really, just don't. In brief, I cannot believe how bad this film was. I haven't seen acting this bad for a long time. The special effects were it's only saving grace, so, kudos for those. It's a shame that the acting was so dreadful else it could have been a pretty decent film. Not up there with 'Twister' but it tried it's best. In many ways, The Hurricane Heist’s lack of self-awareness regarding just how dated it feels plays to its advantage. If you’re looking for that 1997 big-budget CG showcase experience without the wink-win
