Robert De Niro (The Intern) picks up his latest pay check in the 2015 action-filled crime thriller Heist.

Robert De Niro means business as a gangster who's casino is robbed in Heist.

Robert De Niro means business as a gangster who’s casino is robbed in Heist.

When their attempt to rob a casino owned by the feared gangster Pope (De Niro) goes awry and a shootout ensues, Vaughn (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Watchmen) and Cox (Dave Bautista, Riddick) are forced to flee on foot, leading them to hijack a city bus and take the passengers hostage.  Now, in a high-speed chase, Vaughn will not only have to outwit the police who are in hot pursuit, led by Officer Bajos (Gina Carano, Haywire), but he will have to contend with Pope’s maniacal right hand man, Dog (Morris Chestnut, Kick Ass 2), in order to make it through the day alive.  But, not surprisingly, things are not all what they seem to be…

Directed by Scott Man and also featuring Kate Bosworth (Still Alice) and D.B. Sweeney (Fire With Fire), the R-rated Heist didn’t receive much love from the critics when it was dumped onto 24 theaters in November. Ditto for its take at the box office ($50,000). That said, it’s currently available On Demand.

The Heist home entertainment release is abetted with bonus features including interviews with the cast and crew, “The Making of Heist” featurette, deleted/extended scenes, and audio commentary with director Mann, writer Max S. Adams, and actor Morgan.
