Geary was good, but ...
Lucy and Tony are cops that try to stop what turns out to be a very violent convenience store robbery. Two years later, Lucy is an operator for Alert Guard Security who sends service people out to check alarms or other problems. Tony, who wants to date Lucy, ends up working for the same company. Ronald, the guard at the gate, flirts with Lucy, but he's not as serious. Still, despite all this attention, Lucy feels the need to dress like a hooker and go to a bar hoping to be picked up.

'The Heist' (the title of this movie when I saw it) refers to what happens on Easter Sunday when millions of dollars are being stored by Riggs Armored Transport in a vault on the company's premises. A group of robbers includes a man with a rabbit mask, a man with a pig mask, and a former Alert Guard employee. The room where Lucy and the other operators work has a broken thermostat, and the door has to be kept open even though that's not the usual procedure.

My main incentive for watching was Cynthia Geary, who was so cute on 'Northern Exposure'. She didn't disappoint here. Lucy could be quite pleasant under normal conditions, and she handled herself very well in a crisis, even making sarcastic comments and using her feminine charm. Andrew McCarthy alternated polite and nasty as the ringleader of the gang. Peter Hanlon gave an interesting performance as Lucy's apparently gay boss. Other than Geary, though, there wasn't anything really special here. The movie was not excessively violent, but it was violent enough. The ending was quite exciting. And if you like watching things blown up, there were a few really big and unnecessary explosions.
