This week the DVD Club is taking a trip to Rio Bravo, and we're inviting you along for the ride.
To get you nice and warmed up for the Western classic, we thought we'd take a look at the ins and outs of the Heist movie, and how you might go about creating one of your very own.
So mount up then as we ride into the sunset of our latest in the series of how-to guides, and remember, if anybody out there actually makes a hack job film out of one of these instructionals, don't blame us when it all goes tit-shaped.

The Cliché: This isn't so much a cliché as a necessity; you can't hold a heist movie in an open field, for example.
Unless the protagonists want to heist /the field itself/. Wow, that'd be amazing. It'd be like Ocean's 11 meets Lord Of The Rings. We're digressing.
As we know from watching films, heists take place in grimy cities, in the middle of nowhere, in suburban homes or, occasionally, in shiny places like Las Vegas.

How To Recreate It: Head for Blackpool with a digital camera under your arm and ten of your smuggest mates.

Then do your level best to crack the lock on the fruit machines before the arcade security chucks you out.
