My Thoughts

I give The Hurricane Heist Blu-ray a C.

This film had action and adventure but there was something missing. Maybe some excitement?  Was the storyline lacking?  Could I relate to the characters?  No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t get into this film. But don’t let my review discourage you from seeing this film, you may see something that I didn’t and totally enjoy it.

Though I couldn’t get into this film, there were a few things I did like about it.  I liked the opening scene. *Spoiler Warning*  This film opens up with a Dad and his two sons trying to outrun a hurricane.  They get stuck in a field and the dad takes his two sons to a nearby house thinking it would be safe but the hurricane begins to engulf it. Watching this powerful hurricane lifting this house from its foundation was crazy.  To think that a natural disaster could be powerful enough to lift a house is mindblowing. Not to mention, super scary at the same time! I felt the main villain in this movie was not the bad guys trying to rob a U.S. Mint facility but the hurricane itself in many ways.
