Some of the most dramatic movie scenes come from cracking the case. All throughout the movie, the mystery remains, until everything comes together. Some of the most intense of these scenes come from safe crackers who are trying to break into a safe. Various movies have tried different ways to show breaking into safes. Some force entry by determining the combination, or finding the key somewhere convenient. In these methods, usually a listening device is used to hear the clicks of the rotary combination on the lock. Other films show well thought through plans that involve defacing the vault to enter, sometimes using explosives to reach the contents.

Ocean’s Eleven

Ocean’s Eleven is one of the best heist movies today. The 2001 remake depicts some of the same elements as the original produced in 1960. With a full cast of criminals ready to break into whatever they can, there is no shortage of attempts to break into safes in this movie, and the two following it. The recruits that Danny Ocean brings to his group after being released from prison work together to commit crime. Through social engineering and physically sabotaging security systems in the film, they are able to break into the safe.
