Former Bank Robber Breaks Down 11 Bank Heists In Movies | How Real Is It?


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.

    As a former driver/guard for an armored truck company. The money is wrapped because the bank ordered that amount, and every day we’d have to pick up money from the FED. It can be new bills or not, just depends really. Regardless of amount, the money is always delivered wrapped. Also, we had to scan and track shipments just like any other logistical courier.

    4:39 "Those rounds are probably exiting the perpetrator" If your the kind of bell-end that stuffs MAGNUM SLUGS instead of buckshot... yes. Enjoy the shotgun sliding out of your deathgrip and ripping your hands up in the process, even if you wrapped it in grip tape. Also RIP your wrists. Because Full heat 2 3/4 rounds are bad enough in a AOW like that, which is likely a Remington Tac-14 or a 870-WP... nevermind going for over-pressurized rounds.

    So nobody is the slightest bit concerned ? Our government is withholding ground breaking knowledge. As conscious beings living on this Earth we have the right to all information especially information of this magnitude that would quite literally change the way we live life. What our government is doing is disgusting. Even when the government talks about the existence of Aliens they censor information and only tell a half truth. The government has some sort plan or agenda and I can’t quite figure out what it is but whatever it is we have w right to know and people should demand to know. The government acknowledges the existence of UFOs but won’t acknowledge that they have UFO wreckage and have been studying it for decades. Whomever is withholding and filtering this information likely wants to frame these other worldly beings as a threat. The people who are with holding this information are likely some of the wealthiest most powerful people on this planet and they don’t want things to change. Things need to change! We are all living life wrong !
