Great mash of Action and Thrill. Many twists and turns.

This was a great movie because it was a great cross between a action movie and a thriller and this movie had many twists and turns.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Netflix should have no trouble finding an international audience for this kinetic heist caper featuring a conspicuously global cast. But viewers might also walk away disappointed by the thin characterizations in Lift. Why bother bringing in actors from around the world only to shortchange them on any meaningful dialogues or character traits? Beyond Hart and Mbatha-Raw, who make a compelling couple, we learn little about any of the stylish gang of bandits except that they consider themselves heroic for stealing from the wealthy. Nothing in this slick actioner feels particularly new, but it's fast-paced and watchable, and the mid-air fight scenes (and nosedives) could get your heart pumping.
