The Set Up (1995)



Reviews and Comments

The Set Up stars Billy Zane as a burglar who's caught, sent to prison, gets out, and gets a job designing security systems for banks. It's fun for those who like the heist movie genre, as I do, although this is hardly the best reworking of the formula. Cheap thrills replace intelligence, and the ending is not as satisfying as it should have been. But there are enough plot twists and double crosses to keep things moving.
