Henry’s Crime tells the story of Henry (Keanu Reeves) who finds himself dragged unwillingly into a bank robbery. The robbery goes wrong, Henry takes the fall, goes to jail, and then works out his own heist after he gets out in order to rob the bank. “I’ve done the time,” he says, “I might as well do the crime.”
Someone has not quite explained the concept of Double Jeopardy to Henry. Going to prison for trying to do a crime does not give you free rein to do the crime properly once you get out. It actually just means that the clues are worth twice as many dollars.
James Caan joins Keanu on the heist as they must infiltrate the theater next door to the bank because of some tunnel hand waving or some such. Really it happens so that Keanu can fall in love with Vera Farminga while wearing a terrible fake goatee. Also it gives us the great meta humor that Keanu Reeves plays a character forced to act. That’s gold.
