This list of examples in film is endless: Baby Driver, The Town, Oceans Eleven, Heat, The Usual Suspects, Reservoir Dogs, Point Break, The Italian Job, all the Fast & Furious films. So on and so forth.
Basically, the premise is you have this crew of criminals pulling off bank heists. Their legendary status in the criminal underworld is almost matched by their ability to evade law enforcement. They are cool, stylish, well-funded, often well armed. Their MO may range from violent smash and grabs in matching masks and automatic weapons to elaborate plans so complex, you aren’t even sure they were ever there.
Often they may employ a “wheel man” (often an independent) with an almost supernatural command of his vehicle.
Does this have any basis in real life? Sure, you had Bonney & Clyde and various outlaw bands from the Old West and Prohibition eras. You had a few one-offs like D.B. Cooper that were never solved. But in modern times, with helicopters, cameras, forensics, DNA, has there ever been such a thing as a “hot shot crew” running sophisticated serial heists who evaded law enforcement for a significant amount of time?
