“The Hurricane Heist” looks like one of the most outrageous movies ever made.
I was in the office this morning when I saw a trailer for this movie on ESPN. It was stunning. There I sat in my chair in utter shock as a preview for the movie played. I had no idea what to think.
The plot of the movie, according to the YouTube description, is, “Thieves attempt a massive heist against the U.S. Treasury as a Category 5 hurricane approaches one of its Mint facilities.”
This movie honestly looks like it was written, produced and directed by a bunch of drunk teenage boys who are action movie enthusiasts. I imagine the conversation went something like this:
Guy 1: What would make a cool movie?
Guy 2: I’m not sure. What about robbing the U.S. Treasury?
Guy 1: I like that. What could spice it up.
Guy 3 (the drunkest one): What if they do it during a massive hurricane and the lead character is really hot?
Guy 2: Gentlemen, pass me another beer because we have a hit on our hands. The Oscar will be ours in no time.
This movie looks utterly ridiculous and so implausible that I almost have to respect the premise. Will I see it in theaters when it’s released March 9? Almost certainly not, but I might have to grab it once it’s out of theaters.
It’s just so absurd that I have to know how it plays out.
