The Last Heist is a 2022 British crime thriller about four thieves bounded by honour who meet back at the local boozer, the place where it all began. Beneath the banter lies a dark secret that tests the loyalty of these four friends to the limit to see if there really is honour among thieves.

In the UK, The Last Heist will be released in cinemas by Platinum Pictures on November 4, 2022, and will be available on Digital platforms on November 14, 2022.

“Primarily centred on the one location, director Coz Greenop has a job to lift the slightly overlong script from its theatrical origins and is a little run of the mill for the first two acts but then there’s a cracking plot twist in the third act which lifts the film in a wholly unexpected direction.” Any Good Films?

The Last Heist has some nice comedic and shocking moments, it’s not going to be for everyone but if you like this genre then it’s certainly worth checking out, the cast work well for their roles, and the movie isn’t a full-blown action movie but the style of the movie works for the format.” Blazing Minds

“Whilst the heist scenes are fun, well shot (no pun intended) and very entertaining The Last Heist takes a choice (and it’s a smart one) to focus not just on the aftermath of said heist (the present day scenes pick up six months are the robbery), but on the lives and the stories of its characters and their relationships to each other. This gives the much-needed third dimension to characters in this type of film and really works.” From Page 2 Screen

“It is overextended even at 86 minutes, and though fun, that cracker-barrel twist also propels director Greenop towards what instinctively feels like the wrong choice of ending. The Last Heist is not the worst try at this sort of material, but you can already hear it circling the bargain bin.” 2 out of 5, The Guardian

“For a movie clocking in at a reasonable 80-plus minutes, there’s no danger of The Last Heist outstaying its welcome. But if there was an 80-page script, I’m guessing every page had dialogue on it. Lots of dialogue, and here’s the thing: it didn’t need it, just like it didn’t need all the swearing, because this is a film, not a radio play, and wow there’s a lot of talking. Far too much.” 7.5 out of 10, On: Yorkshire Magazine

“While The Last Heist might not reinvent the genre entirely, those looking for something rewardingly familiar that features a genuine edge of innovation and intelligence should look no further: this is a work that entertains, provokes thought and grips from start to finish.” Southwark News

The Last Heist is a good first hour brought down by a final act that has a point to make but goes about it in a very misguided way. It’s a reminder that creativity can be a good thing, but it needs to be properly channeled to have the desired effect.” 2.5 stars out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
