REVIEW: Finding Steve McQueen - Heist Comedy Starring Travis Fimmel, William Fichtner, Rachael Taylor & Forest Whitaker

Review by Jon Donnis
Finding Steve McQueen is a Heist comedy starring Travis Fimmel, Travis plays the character of Harry Barber, as he tells his girlfriend Molly (Rachael Taylor) the story of how years earlier he was involved in a heist to steal $30m from President Richard Nixon.

As crazy as this sounds, this is actually based on a true story.

Also featuring Forest Whitaker as the detective investigating the case, you swap between the present and the past as the story is told.

This is a fun film, a comedy, a heist movie, but ultimately a love story, whereby telling the truth becomes the ultimate price you pay.

Although a relatively short film with a run time of about 90 minutes, you never feel like it should be any longer or any shorter, it really its it bang on the nail.
A special mention needs to be made about the soundtrack, this really stood out to me, and I almost found myself singing along to some of the classic songs, everything from T-Rex to Marvin Gaye.

A fun film that I highly recommend. - 8/10
