Film Quizzes: Bank Robberies

Yesterday I watched Baby Driver, about a getaway driver who listens to music all the time to drown out his severe tinnitus. It got me thinking about bank robberies conveyed in film. The dangers, carefully planning, adrenalin rush and huge rewards on offer has long appealed to Hollywood. This one might be tougher than usual, but I’m still curious as to how you do.

  1. 12/15. I generally like these kind of films, but I hardly ever watch them. I guess I started to like them when I saw a bank robbery in Get Away (1994) with Alec Baldwin – I thought that sequence was particularly tense, but then again I was relatively young and didn’t know many movies lol.

    • Until seeing Baby Driver, I’d never really thought about them. Bank robberies usually get thrown in with heist movies. There’s far more than I realised, as shown by your mention of Get Away. Good score btw.

  2. Bank robberies/ heist films is a genre I love. I really ought to watch more of these as there are some like The Ladykillers that I have heard nothing but good things about, but haven’t watched yet!

    I got 8!

  3. Hey Alex! I didn’t get ’em all but funny I was talking about Point Break just last night on a podcast as we were discussing female directors and that’s the first movie from Kathryn Bigelow that I ever saw.

  4. Shit I’m getting old. Took a few seconds to recall some of the titles. I knew it was LadyKillers but couldn’t remember the exact title, didn’t know The Bank Job. 13/15.
