Movie reviews for The Art of the Steal
||Niels Risgaard Hansen:
|A classic heist and forgery movie - but with a little well placed twist in the end.
The plot is fairly straight forward. A bit slow at first, then picks up the pace during various heists, tricks and shenanigans and then suddenly surprises in the end. It works pretty well.
I am not a big fan of Kurt Russell, but he does a pretty decent job here. Matt Dillon often plays a selfish prick and this movie is no exception. Jay Baruchel has been a classic comic sidekick in a lot of movies lately and the same goes for this movie. He does it rather well and adds some comedy to the movie.
If you like heist movies, like me, it is worth seeing, but nothing spectacular. Otherwise it is an acceptable comedy crime movie.
