  • 'Reservoir Dogs' (1992) gave Quentin Tarantino a solid footing in Hollywood. The film was a very different take on the theme of robbery. In fact, it started the era of gritty and violent scenes where style was more important than the actors.

  • Leonardo DiCaprio and his profound eyes were put to a better use by director Steven Spielberg in 'Catch Me If You Can' (2002). Even the ultimate police officer Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) couldn't resist himself from falling into Frank Abagnale Jr's (DiCaprio) trap.

  • 'The Usual Suspects' (1995) have been copied around the world in several languages. Vivek Agnihotri made it in Hindi with the name 'Chocolate'. Kevin Spacey surprised everyone with his performance in the film.

  • Peter Collinson's 1969 film 'The Italian Job' will remain one of the original heist films made in Hollywood. Michael Caine and Noel Coward collaborate on an almost impossible task. Needles to say that they emerged victorious. Since then, filmmakers across the world are imitating them.

  • Guy Ritchie is the other name of style. Watch 'Snatch' (2000) to believe it. The film was a perfect blend of dark humour and thrill. Also, you don't usually get a chance to see Brad Pitt in such a vulnerable character.

  • Steven Soderbergh's 'Ocean's 11' released in 2001 and changed the rules of the game for heist films. It was subtle, funny and extremely thrilling to watch eleven motivated crooks joining hands for a perfect crime.

  • Dominic Sena's 'Swordfish' released some months before 'Ocean's 11' in 2001. The film starred John Travolta, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry in lead roles. The film kept the promise made in its opening sequence where John Travolta and Hugh Jackman discuss 'Dog Day Afternoon' despite being trapped by SWAT officials.

  • The beautiful can be dangerous too. Super flexible Catherine Zeta-Jones helps the master planner Sean Connery in hatching a plan and implementing it to perfection in 'Entrapment' (1999). Later, the idea of dodging laser lines was used in many more films.

  • Probably you won't see Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie again in a similar role. Of course, they don't belong to the same age group that they portrayed in Dominic Sena's 'Gone In Sixty Seconds' (2000), but this film brought out an entirely new side of the actors which hasn't been seen in their other films.
