American Heist is now on Netflix US – Picture: Mongrel Media

It’s mid-week and Netflix has a bunch of new titles for you to enjoy including two new Netflix Original titles. This follows on from yesterday which saw 6 new movies added to the service. Here’s your look at what’s new on Netflix for October 23rd, 2019.

Most attention today is rightfully looking ahead at what’s coming to Netflix throughout November 2019. That’s not to say the next week doesn’t have new titles that aren’t worth checking out and we’ve already seen some great movie additions.

Only one removal from Netflix today with Lego’s Nexo Knights departing the service.

American Heist (2014)

Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller
Director: Sarik Andreasyan
Cast: Hayden Christensen, Adrien Brody, Jordana Brewster, Akon
Runtime: 94 min

Continuing on from yesterday’s new movies is American Heist, a 2014 B-grade action movie that features some familiar names.

As you’d expect from the name, it’s about two brothers who enter into a life of crime from an early age but years have passed and one has moved on. That’s until one gets out of prison and they’re back to their old ways.

The reviews for this movie were abysmal from critics although audiences generally were more split on it. We’d love to hear your opinions in the comments.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner (Season 1)

Netflix has had a string of cooking success recently but in a similar format to The Chef Show, Netflix has employed the talents of David Chang to take us around the world on a culinary journey.
