Lift Storyline – What’s the plot?

According to the official synopsis, Lift centers around a team of highly skilled criminals, led by Kevin Hart’s character Cyrus Whitaker, who boldly attempt to pull off a mid-flight heist of $500 million in gold from a passenger plane flying at 40,000 feet. F. Gary Gray, the director who is famous for the 2003 remake of Italian Job, has expressed his passion for the heist genre. He believes that this genre provides a platform for unleashing creativity with the help of advanced technology, drawing inspiration from various cultures, and enjoying the process of working with a diverse cast.

In recent times, several heist stories have appeared on streaming platforms, making it a sub-genre of sorts. The storyline usually encapsulates planning, plotting, and the coming together of somewhat problematic individuals with separate motivations.  Moreover, because the job requires people to be sensitive about time – the narrative always seems to be well-paced. Therefore, we can expect a fun movie, full of thrills and power-packed performances!
