Former bank robber Cain Vincent Dyer looks at 11 bank-robbery scenes from popular TV shows and movies and rates them based on realism.
Dyer breaks down "Heat" (1995), "The Place Beyond the Pines" (2012), "The Dark Knight" (2008), "Cherry" (2021), "Den of Thieves" (2018), "Dog Day Afternoon" (1975), "Baby Driver" (2017), "Out of Sight" (1998), "Money Heist" (2017), "The Town" (2010), and "Inside Man" (2006).

Dyer served in the United States Marine Corps. He turned to bank robbery after threats to his family by a Mexican cartel. He was nicknamed the "kangaroo bandit," having been captured on CCTV stuffing cash into a backpack worn on his chest. He says he robbed over 100 banks across California between 1999 and 2001. He eventually turned himself in and served nine years in prison after pleading guilty to six robberies. He now works as a life coach and motivational speaker, helping newly released prisoners reintegrate into society. He's also a partner in two production companies.

I feel like most robberies are overexxagerated in movies and TV. If you are going to rob something I'd imagine going in all over the top is a terrible idea, even in small convenience stores.

Actually this guy is saying that during his robbery days he was afraid of "buddies" that could be violent, but according at L.A. Times article it seems totally false "The Kangaroo Bandit was brazenly aggressive, however. Flashing his gun and shouting obscenities, he struck fear into customers and tellers alike."

Maybe made some kind of deal with them, maybe he helped them learn how to catch other bank robbers or something. And being former military and very pro cop/military probably didn't hurt. Definitely really unusual.

It would be amazing if he’d watch La Casa De Papel and then make a longer detailed commentary about it. In general tho, he seems like a super cool guy and it was really interesting to hear it all from an actual professional (ex) bank robber.

I love Mrs Tracy Walker so much. I was on track to be federally indicted for smuggling three hundred pounds of pure Colombian snow over international borders, alongside numerous armed assault charges, until Mrs Tracy Walker showed up in my life. She promised me that if I dedicated my life to her, my mind, body, and soul, she would protect me from all punitive actions taken against me. So far it has worked out splendidly. My life has completely turned around, and I no longer run a life of easily prosecutable crime! I stick to trying to scam people out of bitcoin! And I have made shitloads. I beg anyone who is interested in joining me in my scamming operations with Mrs Tracy Walker to reply to this message.

I don't know whether to be impressed with the fact that he got away with it over 100 times, or to laugh at the fact that after 100 robberies he still didn't have enough money to stop doing it. Was he stealing like 50 bucks each time? lol

In Heat, there was no silent alarm. They actually disabled it the night before. The only reason the cops were onto them was from a tip from one of Van Zant's men after he beat the info out of someone on the crew. I would have been interested to see his take on how they took out the silent alarm.

My brother and I robbed banks in the early 80s (actually only savings and loans) . We were busted by a scorn woman. After Prison I went straight , but my brother continued. He did a total of 30 yrs flat in and out of prison. Once he was busted because he was in a convenance store and somebody recognized his voice from the bank robbery. Real bank robbing and movies have little in common with reality. My brother got out of prison in sept 2018 and completely went straight. Went to work in the oil fields, didn't drink, didn't do drugs (we never did drugs anyway, believe it or not they scared us both) just worked hard, and was doing everything right. July 23 2020 he dropped dead from a heart attack age 59.
