A notice for enthusiasts of punk rocker-turned-performing artist Henry Rollins: Black Flag’s previous lead vocalist doesn’t have much screen time in “The Last Heist,” a dinky bank heist frightfulness thriller half and half. Rollins (“Sons of Anarchy,” “He Never Died”) plays Bernard, a dreadful religious extremist who we soon learn is an eye-grabbing serial executioner. Bernard is the wellspring of the film’s high idea preface: a bank heist that turns out badly once the eventual cheats find that one of their prisoners is a heartless executioner. The film once in a while becomes animated in light of the fact that Rollins, the main convincing on-screen character in the generally unprofessional cast, is underutilized, and practically everything else immature.
As I watched and sat tight for Rollins to unavoidably dispatch his co-stars, I considered the early films of John Carpenter, especially “Attack on Precinct 13” and “Halloween.” “The Last Heist” is more similar to “Ambush on Precinct 13” in that it takes after characters as they specifically partner themselves against commonly undermining powers.
