Let's Rob Fort Knox
"Mission-Impossible" meets "The Usual Suspects" in this action comedy about the heist of all heists.
A criminal mastermind who specializes in intricately planned, non-lethal robberies plots the biggest score of all, but when the local crime syndicate gets word of it our heroes must not only steal the nation's gold supply, but outwit the mob to keep it.
Have you ever watched a super-criminal's plot unfold in a film like "Die Hard" and secretly wished the bad guys would get away with it? That's the premise behind "Let's Rob Fort Knox".
A band of reluctant thieves is gathered together by "Mr. Grey," a criminal mastermind who specializes in non-lethal bank robberies. In fact, he never has used a gun. So his gang is a little surprised when he wants to tackle the biggest bank of them all.
He not only plans to pull off the heist of the Century, he promises his gang that he will do it with, "No bullets, no car chases and absolutely no exploding helicopters."
The plan is diabolically clever, of course, but when the local crime syndicate gets word of it they muscle in on the plan. Our heroes must not only steal the gold, but outwit the mob to keep it.
Piece of cake, right? But not every plan goes off without a hitch. And our hitch is a rogue Army Captain loose on the base. He will stop at nothing to defeat our heroes, but unlike the "Die Hard" movies being spoofed, he hasn't got a chance! In fact, he is actually an unwilling accomplice in the robbery. As our mastermind is fond of saying, "Things will go wrong. The trick is to get them to go wrong in the right ways."
And, in the grand tradition of caper films, there is a twist at the end -- a clever turn of events that leaves our heroes laughing all the way to the bank.
