Seeing majority reviews for this movie, there’s a common theme: “Wow, I was not expecting it to be this great!” I share those sentiments as well.
This seems to be a staple and blueprints of what modern heist movies were to become. I’m mostly referring to the differences of character between the bad guys. The leader being cool and meticulous while the audience is leery of that crazy guy who’s going to ruin the heist because he can’t keep it…
On my last day of “quarantine” (back to work tomorrow after 42 days), decided to make it worthwhile and finally watch Seven Samurai as it’s eyed me from my shelf for far too long.

I had low expectations for this one. Not sure why.. maybe Ridley Scott age, or trailer being mediocre… whatever. The movie exceeded my expectations.
