Coin Heist – JenEric Movie Review

How This WorksRead Other Reviews

Hello Cinephiles,

Today we’re talking about the 2017 film Coin Heist.

Story

The build-up and teen angst were forefront on this movie. Despite the name, there was very little heist. The film was disjointed with too many undeveloped threads. The heist was jumbled and not explained. Meaning we weren’t sure where the mistakes in the heist happened. It felt like it wanted to be a heist movie, a teen drama, and an independent art film all at once.

The ending set up a perfect revenge scenario that would have been a great pay off, but didn’t use it and that pisses me off.

Score: 0

Characters

The characters were boring, stereotypical, and angsty-er than a WB show from the early 2000’s. The acting was passable but it felt like they were as confused about what was going on as the audience.

Score: 0.5

Dialogue

The only thing more grating than the bad heist dialogue or the teen angst was the annoying trope that was the teacher.

Score: 0

Visuals and Music

The visuals were close in and pretty basic. There wasn’t anything that was particularly pretty or impressive but nothing terrible.

The music was okay, lots of angst-ridden heist-like music and a good song.

Score: 0.5

Fun

When they were in heist mode (maybe 20 minutes of the movie) it was fun and exciting. Beyond that it was a little boring.

Score: 0.5

Overall

I’m really angry at the ending. If they’d used the extra coins to flood the market and basically devalue them, they could have gotten back at the jackass that caused the entire thing. Instead they melt them down and add them to a statue… sigh.

Score: 1.5 stars out of 5

Hacked

Hello My Imaginary Friends,

I was planning a post about my burnout last year and checked out that post. In it, there was a section that used to say, “It’s really frustrating that I have to actively force myself to relax.” When I looked, it was changed to, “It’s really frustrating that I have to actively force myself to relax and I have to take CBD products for this like from this website.” and included a link.

This isn’t the first time that I’ve noticed some of my posts edited. I thought it was just the serial stories and tried to mitigate it by deleting. I had thought that it was from before we migrated to this host.

Long story short, some Nerf-Herder of unknown looks has been added crap to our site.

If you find that we’re inserting links to Cannabis, Porn, drugs, alcohol, drones, or anything that isn’t geeky; please let us know as soon as you can. Unless it’s marked as guest post, we don’t get paid for these links and don’t support them.

If you’ve been mislead by these, I’m very sorry.

Thank you,

Éric
