Netflix heist comedy directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Daniel Kunka. Lift (2024) centers on an international heist crew, led by Cyrus Whitaker (Kevin Hart), as they race to lift $500 million in gold from a passenger plane at forty thousand feet to prevent a terrorist attack.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Cyrus Whitaker: Can I get you a drink, Abby?
Abby Gladwell: Agent Gladwell.
Cyrus Whitaker: Am I in trouble?
Abby Gladwell: [to Cyrus] You and your friends are looking at identity fraud, money laundering, and transportation of stolen property. But I’m here to offer you a deal. We need you to steal something.
Cyrus Whitaker: Okay, guys. Listen up. Our next score is going to be our biggest yet.
Cyrus Whitaker: Half a billion in gold is on its way to a terrorist cell.
Abby Gladwell: And the gold needs to disappear.
Denton: What’s your plan?
Cyrus Whitaker: We got to steal it mid-flight, forty thousand feet in the air.
Camila: We are taking the plane?
Crew Member: The whole plane?
Cyrus Whitaker: It’s kind of hard to take half a plane.
Camila: It’s impossible.
Crew Member: It just hasn’t been done before.
Cyrus Whitaker: If we don’t do this, we go to jail.
Abby Gladwell: Plus, it’s about saving lives.
Camila: I don’t appreciate the emotional blackmail.
Cyrus Whitaker: This is not emotional blackmail. This is blackmail blackmail.
Cyrus Whitaker: Just treat it like any other lift.
Cyrus Whitaker: We need to blend in.
Denton: [referring to the fake beard] Too much?
Cyrus Whitaker: Are you going for Gandalf the Grey?
Cyrus Whitaker: Find a weakness.
Cyrus Whitaker: You think you can fly it?
Camila: I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
Magnus: [offers a fist pump] Go!
Cyrus Whitaker: No.
Magnus: If it was in a movie, it would go like, “Hey, let’s steal a plane!” And then you’d put your hand in, and people would be like, “Ah!”
Camila: Oh, my God!
Cyrus Whitaker: Alright, then. Let’s show them what true artistry looks like.
Cyrus Whitaker: Is everybody in position?
Crew Member: You’re good to go.
Magnus: Showtime. Showtime? Come on!
Camila: They’re going to shoot us down.
Cyrus Whitaker: We got to get to the cockpit!
