The Sting Reviews

John Ferguson
Radio Times

The sting itself is as audacious as it is elaborate, but the real pleasure comes from the chemistry between the two leads, the lovingly created 1930s settings and Marvin Hamlisch's inspired reworking of Scott Joplin's music.

A masterfully smooth grift that's built on golden-age savvy but never feels like a rose-tinted throwback.

a brilliant piece of moviemaking that is extremely watchable and completely enjoyable, even almost 40 years after it was made

Newman and Redford pass a few facial expressions between them and try to cool each other out. If there ever was much of a script, it can be said to have gone to waste.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Overrated, overlong and unconvincing formulaic comedy caper that relies heavily on star power.

The Sting still holds up as a beautifully constructed piece of mainstream entertainment with two stars burning brightly and staying on the right side of smug.

The camaraderie between the two principal actors is almost as appealing as it was in Butch Cassidy.

this Depression-era comedy cashes in on the individual charm of Paul Newman and Robert Redford and the strong chemistry between them, also evident in Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid.

The film ends up relying on different chapter headings to explain what's going on, but it's all very professional, with fine attention to period detail.

Still fairly entertaining, though its tricky twists have been co-opted by many subsequent films, and there's no getting around the fact that [it's] way too long.

The film is so good-natured, so obviously aware of everything it's up to, even its own picturesque frauds, that I opt to go along with it.
