7. The Town

The Town
If Gone Baby Gone introduced us to Ben Affleck the director, The Town was his announcement as a true filmmaker. He also stars, with Jeremy Renner, as a pair of Boston guys who go on a series of bank robberies in a certain section of Beantown and Jon Hamm's FBI Agent is hot on their tail. It is one thrilling ride.

8. Inception

Christopher Nolan gave us the most unusual and most awesome of heist movies with Inception. Talk about surreal!

9. Jackie Brown

Jackie Brown
Quentin Tarantino does it again and this time, with the help of Elmore Leonard's Rum Punch novel. It's a classic case of who's playing who and all along, our bets were on Pam Grier.

10. The Sting

The Sting
A classic heist movie if there ever was one, The Sting featured Robert Redford and Paul Newman with a ragtime soundtrack that still steals our hearts after all these decades.

11. Quick Change

Quick Change
Bill Murray stars as the leader of a trio of robbers (including Geena Davis and Randy Quaid), who rob a bank and can't seem to get out of New York City. Hilarity does ensue, and it is one of Murray's most subtly hysterical turns.

12. Inside Man

Inside Man
If you had told us that one of our favorite Spike Lee movies would be about a bank heist, we would have said you were nuts. But, that is exactly what we got with the Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster and Clive Owen-starring thriller about an Inside Man.
