Former bank robber Cain Vincent Dyer looks at 11 bank-robbery scenes from popular TV shows and movies and rates them based on realism.
Dyer breaks down "Heat" (1995), "The Place Beyond the Pines" (2012), "The Dark Knight" (2008), "Cherry" (2021), "Den of Thieves" (2018), "Dog Day Afternoon" (1975), "Baby Driver" (2017), "Out of Sight" (1998), "Money Heist" (2017), "The Town" (2010), and "Inside Man" (2006).
Dyer served in the United States Marine Corps. He turned to bank robbery after threats to his family by a Mexican cartel. He was nicknamed the "kangaroo bandit," having been captured on CCTV stuffing cash into a backpack worn on his chest. He says he robbed over 100 banks across California between 1999 and 2001. He eventually turned himself in and served nine years in prison after pleading guilty to six robberies. He now works as a life coach and motivational speaker, helping newly released prisoners reintegrate into society. He's also a partner in two production companies.

  • EVEN DID YOU SEE the movie HEAT?? The whole hit was based on the fact they had previously disabled the Alarms, Camera's and silent alarms. Initially McCauley (De Niro) laughs when first offered the job, saying it sounds like horrible idea. But then the computer expert in the wheelchair explains he has all the codes to shut off all the security remotely. In mid 1990's this was totally possible. If someone can build an alarm someone can defeat it. Mc Cauley even says this computer guy knows everything about this bank, you could build a bank from the details he has. The tip to Robbery Homicide is called in via Waynegro seeking revenge for them trying to kill him at the dinner.

  • So I used to clean several banks years ago and every teller had a silent alarm. Also, the good majority of the money is in the safe and only the top managers have access to it. So it's stupid to try to rob a bank.

  • One huge movie on to where I thought was a perfect robbery. Ving rhames he’s the director of 911 dispatch he send his crew to break into a dispatcher home call her and tell her it’s her house years after she’s still dealing with issue he sets her up to not answer the 911 calls from her district so they can commit robbery’s all simultaneously in the same district.

  • Was I the only one shouting at the screen when he broke down 'Heat'? Neil McCauly (Deniro) paid a guy in a wheelchair $100 grand advance (on a 10% cut) for info on the bank, including custom circuit boards to be installed the day before that turned off the alarms and cameras 20 minutes before they walked in the door. As Pacino said, 'These guys are good'.

  • God bless anyone reading this! Hope you have an awesome day! Seek him while you can! Jesus is the way and the only way and he is returning soon! Whenever you think you aren't loved... Remember the ultimate sacrifice was for love! SUICIDE IS NEVER THE ANSWER! For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV The wages of sin is death (hell) but Jesus payed our wages on the cross, for our salvation! We must turn to God and away from our sinful ways, Confess Jesus is Lord and believe with our hearts that he was risen from the dead by God, and we must be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit and live by His word and Commandments! Trust that God will help with the rest! Seek God today before it's too late! Today could be your last day on earth! Have a blessed day!

  • I like when in the dark knight at the very start of movie they are going to pick up the Joker at corner of the street. He jumps in silent and as there headed to bank shows Heath Ledger the Joker rack the slide on his Glock with a extended mag in it. It locks to rear and he manually drops forward.. THIS MEANS HE IS HEADED TO A BANK TO ROB IT WITHOUT AMMO LOADED. Real pistol will load a live round when racked and only lock back on empty. Bad flaw in great movie
