I completed This is a Robbery, and I received’t spoil the ending however in the event you’re considering there might be an enormous reveal at the finish, properly, you is likely to be dissatisfied. What I discovered attention-grabbing all through the four-part sequence was how the storyline relied on the voices of newspaper reporters who’ve lined the heist —and its aftermath —over the years. Considering the filmmakers are Colin and Nick Barnicle, sons of longtime Boston Globe columnist and present MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle, it is smart they’d heart journalists in the story. Go watch it, Boston seems completely stunning and the Boston accents are more genuine than the rest you’ll watch this yr. Plus, in the event you can determine the central thriller of the sequence there’s a $10 million reward in it for you.
