GRINGO, a dark comedy mixed with white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, explores the battle of survival for businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) when he finds himself crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal.
Award winning novel "Storm Crashers" by Richard Wickliffe was optioned by one of the "big-six" studios, after his unique concept of a high-tech heist during a hurricane was shopped all over Los Angeles. This movie and at least two other similar projects were planned shortly thereafter. See more »
The storm surge which floods New Hope capsizes a large cargo ship, the size of the storm surge was taller than the ship itself. No hurricane has the power to create a storm surge that high and that powerful. See more »
Let me be clear, The Hurricane Heist is one of the worst-made theatrical films I have ever seen. It's plot jumps all over the place, it has too many underdeveloped characters, its incredibly implausible, and has terrible acting and special effects. HOWEVER... I highly recommend viewing it if you love so-bad-it's-good films like The Room and Troll 2. Me and my girlfriend could not stop laughing during the entire movie (as was another group in our screening). Unintentional hilarity is constant, whether it's the main character's horrific Southern accent, cringey product placement, or hilariously overblown action scenes. I love that The Hurricane Heist came out in 2018, in a year filled with darkness and depression, sometimes we need a good old-fashioned terrible action movie to laugh out asses off to!
