Structured as a trick within a trick within a trick, Mamet's latest contribution to film noir is a mildly entertaining crimer that nonetheless exposes his strenuous efforts to outsmart the audience.

Looking Closer

This is a world not unlike superhero comics, only in this world the heroes have the superhuman ability to knock down buildings with a split-second comeback line.

Cinema em Cena

Como em todo roteiro escrito por Mamet, os diálogos são excelentes e a trama é engenhosa - mas desta vez o excesso de reviravoltas acaba comprometendo o resultado final.

| Original Score: 3/5

Heist is better than The Score, not because it is more surprising or the actorly turns by the principals better realized, but simply because it is better written and the direction is more fluid.

Mamet plays his cards carefully enough to raise the performances into a meditation on the nature of trust itself.

If the journey is familiar, however, it's still enjoyable, as one team of thieves tries to trip up another. There are more broken alliances, double-crosses and hidden agendas here than you'd find in a whole season of "Survivor."

A throwback to the kind of hard-boiled yarns the late Don Siegel used to crank out in his sleep.
