Top 5 Most Clever Movie Bank Robberies

5. Out of Sight

If not for being caught right after, this stick up might have been the most cleaver of all. Not even 5 minutes into the film, George Clooney walks into a bank and attempts to rob it. He walks up to the woman teller who has a large grin on her face and replicates her large smile with one of his own. He then precedes to tell her that the man sitting down and talking to her manager is his partner in crime and if she doesn’t fill up a bag with large unmarked bills, the manager will be shot between the eyes. She fills up the bag and as Clooney walks out of the bank he makes a comment to his partner who then asks the manager who that man was. Without a gun, without yelling or tripping any alarm, Clooney makes it out of the bank with a large bag full of money. It would have been perfect too, if his car could start….

4. Bonnie and Clyde

Out of all the most traditional bank robberies, Bonnie and Clyde pulled them off with the most class. With every robbery they became more and more infamous, their photos on the covers of newspapers and magazines. No tricks and no conniving, In and out of banks before the people even knew what hit them. Comparing to all the other bank robberies featured on the silver screen, Bonnie and Clyde’s adapted characters were vivid and felt very real. Their large life was followed by an even larger death.

3. The Dark Knight

Now unmistakably one of the greatest opening sequences of a superhero movie, is the Joker’s robbery of a Gotham City, mafia owned bank. A six man operation involves all the criminals covering their faces with clown masks, zip-lining from building to building, an expert volt opener, a school bus, and oh yeah…each of them killing off the one they just worked with until, the Joker is the only one left.

2. Bandits

Fresh from one of the coolest prison breakouts in any movie, the characters Joe Blake and Terry Collins played by Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thorton, knock off a local bank with a highlighter. After the two of them casually walk into the bank, Joe Blake presses a yellow highlighter marker to the back of the neck of the security officer, who proceeds to hand them his pistol which allows them to proceed with the then traditional bank robbery. Bandits is also #2 for the Sleep over robbery which entails the two criminals kidnapping the bank manager the night before the robbery, ensuring low risks of police involvement and little to no surprises.

1. Inside Man

“Spolier Alert” Out of all these five robberies, this is the only one where the awesomely clever part is revealed at the very end. This entire movie like Dog Day Afternoon is the bank robbery itself. (By the way I absolutely love Dog Day, but it is by no means, clever at all, they have no experience, no plan, it gets way out of control and they lose in the end, terrible robbery). Inside Man is an extremely simple story of a criminal played by Clive Owen being pursued by a Detective played by Denzel Washington. They both try to outwit each other with plans and manpower and in the end, the criminal and the money is no where to be found with absolutely no trail left behind. The Detective is left baffled and confused even after its revealed to the audience that Owen actually never escaped, but hung out inside a wall of the bank for weeks, until the case was forgotten about, then he casually walked out the front door….Amazing ending.
