U potpunosti mi je jasno koja je to vrsta filma, ali imamo li mi hrvatski termin za taj žanr?

heist/caper
pljačkaški film


Explanation:
Sumnjam da imamo neku inačicu. Mislim da je bolje opisno to objasniti, ubaci frazu tipa "velika pljačka" ili "elaborirana pljačka". Pa sad iskombiniraj nešto. Ili samo napiši "pljačkaški film", iako je to malo širi pojam.

neutral  Darko Kolega: kad bi ja bio tako mršav poput vašeg ponuđenog odgovora (k tome još i malčice nerazumljiv)...Prozdrav!!; no prob for me; anyway, there is no movie genre "pljačka" - rather "film o pljački", "pljačkaški" ...

Reference: zabavni krimić / krimi komedija

Reference information:
-pljačkaški film je film koji pljačka (naše džepove); radije film o pljački (to mi zvuči malčice nesuvislo); mada postoje i "akcijski" (kao da su na akciji);

radije se odlučujem za sad za verziju s izrazom "krimić" jer nije kriminalni, ni čisto pljačkaški - više zabavni krimić (pljačka je kriminalna radnja, zar ne?);
uz engl. "heist" - što ukazuje na pljačku kao glavnu radnju i "Caper" - baca malo na likove iz stripa > ja bi rekao da se radi o zabavnom laganom krimiću; možda čak krimi-komedija

čisto pljačkaški film bio bi krimi-drama (mogući su još neki dodaci, ovisno o stupnju krvoprolića, nasilja, efekata, vremena radnje... žestoka krimi drama i sl.)

Example sentence(s):
