Top 10 heist movies!

So ever since I completed Grand Theft Auto 5 I have been dying to watch a big heist/robbery style film, I have seen all the obvious ones so I thought I would do a top 5 of my personal favourites when it comes to the big job!

I thought about including "Inception" in the list, I just couldn't bring myself to include. While this
film is a great film, the heist is all in the mind, so for me it is not a true heist. However, this is definitely an honourable mention, more than likely even top of that list!
10 - The Bank Job
"Martine offers Terry a lead on a foolproof bank hit on London's Baker Street. She targets a roomful of safe deposit boxes worth millions in cash and jewelry. But Terry and his crew don't realize the boxes also contain a treasure trove of dirty secrets - secrets that will thrust them into a deadly web of corruption and illicit scandal." IMDB

9 - Three Kings
"In the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War, 4 soldiers set out to steal gold that was stolen from Kuwait, but they discover people who desperately need their help." IMDB

8 - The Italian Job 2003
"After being betrayed and left for dead in Italy, Charlie Croker and his team plan an elaborate gold heist against their former ally." IMDB

7 - Inside Man
"A police detective, a bank robber, and a high-power broker enter high-stakes negotiations after the criminal's brilliant heist spirals into a hostage situation." IMDB

6 - Point Break
"An FBI agent goes undercover to catch a gang of bank robbers who may be surfers." IMDB

5 - Ronin
"A freelancing former US intelligence agent tries to track down a mysterious package that is wanted by both the Irish and the Russians." IMDB

4 - The Town
"As he plans his next job, a longtime thief tries to balance his feelings for a bank manager connected to one of his earlier heists, as well as the FBI agent looking to bring him and his crew down." IMDB

3 - Heat
"A group of professional bank robbers start to feel the heat from police when they unknowingly leave a clue at their latest heist." IMDB

2 - The Italian Job 1969
"Comic caper movie about a plan to steal a gold shipment from the streets of Turin by creating a traffic jam." IMDB
