Have you ever watched a solid heist movie, but felt like there was something lacking? Sure, Danny Ocean may have his s**t together, but think about how much better it would be if he pulled it off during a hurricane.
Thank God, because The Fast and the Furious and xXx director Rob Cohen is here to answer our prayers with his latest film, Hurricane Heist. This Oscar-worthy gem just had a trailer drop, and damn, does it look like a great drunken night at home. Check out the trailer above.
Below is the official synopsis to Hurricane Heist:
“Under the threat of a hurricane, opportunistic criminals infiltrate a US Mint facility to steal $600 million for the ultimate heist. When the hurricane blows up into a lethal CATEGORY 5 storm and their well-made plans go awry, they find themselves needing a vault code known only by one Treasury Agent (Maggie Grace), a need that turns murderous. But the Treasury agent has picked up an unlikely ally, a meteorologist (Toby Kebbell) terrified of hurricanes but determined to save his estranged brother kidnapped by the thieves. He uses his knowledge of the storm as a weapon to win in this non-stop action thriller ride charged with adrenaline throughout.”
Seriously, how has this genius idea taken so long to get realized on the big screen? Fans of San Andreas and Geostorm (like me) will likely eat their hearts out with this one.
