It’s no secret that Breaking Bad is beloved for its gripping storyline, but it’s equally beloved for its compelling protagonist, Walter White, a regular guy who becomes a drug lord.

Throughout the film, Gerard Butler gets to show off both his dramatic and action-actor skills, and fans of Money Heistwill no doubt enjoy the film’s final twist, which will make them go back and look for details they missed the first time.
12. Dirty Money (2018– )
This anthology series, like Evil Genius, is based on true stories, but it examines something new every time. There are a lot of stories out there about how easy it is for money to get dirty; whether it’s through fraud or corruption, each one shows just how easy it is.

16. Prison Break (2005–2017)

You’ve now been made aware of my existence.

20. Ocean’s Eleven (2001)
Rat Pack classic The Big Lebowski was not just a cheap cash-in, it was the definitive version that quickly overtook and became the yardstick by which all modern heist movies are measured.
