The Hurricane Heist

A 500 Million dollar robbery in the midst of a hurricane.


The Hurricane Heist
Under the threat of a hurricane, opportunistic criminals infiltrate a US Mint facility with plans to steal $600 million. When the hurricane morphs 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, a need that turns murderous. But the Treasury agent has picked up an unlikely ally, a meteorologist terrified of hurricanes but determined to save his estranged brother kidnapped by the thieves. He uses his insider knowledge of the storm as a weapon against the crooks.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconIt's probably lazy to just write the Hurricane Heist off as Fast and Furious meets Twister but it's pretty unavoidable. That's almost exactly what it is.

Tomatometer quote iconhe Hurricane Heist is a throwback to the overblown action thrillers of yesteryear -- and a thoroughly middling example of why they don’t make ’em like this anymore.
