A Netflix Original That Just Doesn't Work
"Coin Heist" has so much potential given the premise. Four students endeavor to save their school financially by breaking into a US government mint and producing "error" coins that can be sold for millions. As it turns out, the father of one of these students embezzled $10M from the school's endowment fund, necessitating the operation.

Given the interesting and promising premise, this film could have been so much better. Instead, it is bogged down with horrible and banal dialogue that takes the audience nowhere. Also, there are scenes that are downright silly--the US government mint's only security seems to be two inept guards at the front desk and nothing else. Four teens can wander around the mint in this post 9/11 world without being questioned or even noticed. There doesn't even appear to be any cameras in place. How convenient, if you're a teen wanting to rob the place. There are also overly done stereotypes, the black kid from the wrong side of the tracks who is harassed by the rich white kid and the angst-ridden computer nerd.

Overall, the cast does a pretty good job with the material they are given; they are believable in their roles. Unfortunately, they are mired in a movie that just doesn't work.

Great Setup/Acting, But Fizzles As It Comes To Finish Line
There are enough things inherent in "Coin Heist" that it really shouldn't work. The plot is outlandish, the ending descends into schmaltz, and (at heart) it's a teen coming-of-age drama (not like there are any of those floating around these days). However, despite all the unevenness and clichés, "Coin Heist" still manages to at least be entertaining due to the great acting and slickness of the setup.

For a basic plot summary (no spoilers), "Coin Heist" sees Jason (Alex Saxon) struggling with the reality that his father has been stealing from his high school's endowment, leaving the father in prison and the school in danger of shutting down. After a field trip to the U.S. mint, however, Jason's friend Alice (Alexis G. Zall), a hacker at heart and in skill, devises a plan to infiltrate the mint and print some rare coins that can be sold to save the school. The plan will only work, however, if they can also rope in organization queen Dakota (Sasha Pieterse) and outsider Benny (Jay Walker).

For the first half or so of "Coin Heist", I was invested in the characters and their mission. The producers do a great job of setting up the backgrounds of each character, and I really felt like they could be real high-schoolers. Sure, their mission is highly improbable, but that's what cinema is all about, right?!

The problem, however, is that after that roughly half-way point my investment really started to wane for two reasons:

1. The build-up to the caper was much more interesting than the caper itself; and 2. I felt that the ending descending into a bit too much hijinx and corniness for my liking. I realize this is a film directed at teens, so perhaps it plays a bit better to that demographic, but for an older viewer it seemed like a bit of a letdown to build up these great characters and then have them, in most cases, succumb to the tropes of the genre I was afraid would happen from the get-go.

So, while I can easily give "Coin Heist" a slightly-better-than-average 6 out of 10 stars here, I feel that it failed to take that "next step" into the greatness range due to its "running out of steam" in the latter portion. The target audience (teens) may disagree with me here, of course.

Not too sure about the future kiddies
Coin Heist is a teener movie with an attempt at being a bit of a thriller. Certainly no Breakfast Club or Ferris Bueller but we once again have the mandatory group of schoolyard antagonists coming together for the common good. In this case the CG is apparently to save their school. Not too sure why it's left to these 4 to save the school but awaaaaaay we go. This is where suspension of disbelief is to be called upon by the viewer in great chunks. Apparently the answer is to combine together, electronically hack into and physically break into the Government Mint and produce a heap of "collector edition coins" for resale and then donate the funds to the school! Luckily for the young inexperienced perpetrators of crime it seems that no-one is ever working at the Mint, or, if they are, they don't seem to mind a coupla 16 year olds walking around and fiddling with the machinery, camera surveillance is very limited and guards are very dumb. Also, you may well ask, why not keep the $10million & just quit school? The mandatory romance between bad boy and nerdy but pretty hacker student is here as well. Also as a sideline we join the current crop of "controversial" interracial relationships just to prove that we're "with it". Fairly fast pacing sucked me in. Many times I was tempted to cut it short because of the very(x4) far fetched fallacy that could never happen but I persevered to view the, as usual, happy ending. Incredibly unbelievable fantasy scenario, sort of like a soapie inspired, TV series that runs for 95 minutes if this is the future of filmmaking and viewing with the young kids I weep for that future.

Not what it could have been
Browsing the streaming options I happened along this film, being a fan of "Who's minding the mint" (1967) i decided to give "Coin Heist" a try, while it started out good the film lacks direction, it tries to be too much, a comedy, a heist film and a teen romance movie all in one package and falls short on all three counts, while the actors played their rolls well, Sasha Pieterse as Dakota was miscast and out of place as a high school aged character, her performance was good but she was just not the right person to fill the role. The film took time to develop the characters and the plot but at the end everything was rushed and just pushed out to fit the running time, could have used 10 or 15 more minutes to provide a more satisfactory ending. The story had potential but falls short in the end.

A refreshingly youthful viewpoint!
Female writer/director, Emily Hagins, is very apparently still young, and that comes across in the film.

However, contrary to previous productions of young film makers that have gone before, the young perspectives of Emily Hagins, combined with the very capable and professional approach of herself and her crew are both freshening and unique in the movie world. I give this movie a solid 8 out of 10 because the virtually unique combination of youth and professionalism will rarely if ever make it to the big screen.

The plot is interesting enough but, and without giving too much away, I have to say failing slightly on the believe-ability scale in terms of how the main characters where able to exploit certain security flaws at the plant.

All said, Coin Heist is well worth a watch for any movie buff.

Ruined family night
Decided to watch this with the family, and in turn I got nothing but a wasted night. Took time out of my busy day to sit down, get popcorn to watch a movie that failed in every aspect. Thanks for a ruined night, Coin Heist. I don't appreciate it.

The actors themselves were horrible, as well as the writing, which was more than terrible. Next time I'll watch a movie worth 1 hour and 39 minutes of my time - this one, although, was not!

Netflix misses the mark for once
The moment I see the words "Netflix Original" in the title of a movie, I am immediately interested. This movie misses the mark in almost every category. Surprising because Netlox Original movies and shows have been some of the best programs I have ever seen. This movie is horrible. I thought it to be such a clever idea, a heist movie for younger viewers, but I can't imagine any young viewer getting past the first couple minutes, there is absolutely nothing in this movie that will interest anyone of any age. It's a shame because I thought it to be such a fresh, New idea. So many important aspects of the movie are left out, probably due to it being low budget, but it expects you to take too many things for granted. The actors are not believable, the scenes are not believable. The movie only gives you several minutes of the heist. I am so surprised that Netflix allowed this movie to make it through. Too bad.

Ocean's 4
Four high school teens discover the mint has lax security. Their private school needs $10 million dollars and they take it upon themselves to print error coins to sell as collector's items.

The whole premise is ridiculous. It is a story of teens coping with life by uniting in a criminal project. Fair acting, but nothing great. Ending was a bit messed up.

Some kind of cute movie
It makes some emotion on my heart but I wait a breaking point in the film. It is a cute movie. If there is a unexpected scenes, may receive much more ratings. Playings and artists quite enough. Anyway, I enjoy while watching it. Sasha is very beautiful and Alex is very handsome. Maybe the film finished with they are together.
