* ''Film/CityOfIndustry'': The heist of a jewelry store by a four-man operation occurs early on without a hitch. The actual fall-out results from the newest member of the group later betraying his associates so he doesn't have to share the loot with them. He kills two of them but the third guy gets away, and since one of the other two was the surviving party's [[YouKilledMyFather younger brother]] he spends the rest of the movie [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge gunning after his treacherous ex-partner]].

* In ''AntMan'', a genius millionaire gives master cat burglar [[TheHero Scott]] a superhero outfit that lets him shrink down to the size of an ant, all to steal exactly the same technology from an unscrupulous businessman [[CutLexLuthorACheck who plans to sell it]] to some very shady types. About half the plan is "use the suit" which justifies otherwise unrealistic tropes like AirVentPassageway, and the other half is the regular standard heist techniques that Scott and his fellow criminals do anyway.
