Has a customarily jovial air but a deficit of flim-flam inventiveness.

Does little more than repeat the predictable plot twists and character arcs that David Mamet has been recycling for too many years.

One Guy's Opinion

A stingless 'Sting'...the viewer may feel that, whatever has happened to the characters, he's the one who's actually been ripped off.

Orlando Weekly

Bielinsky does good work laying the groundwork for doubt, but as the mounting obstacles to the handoff of the stamps become less and less believable, we can sense him straying ever farther from a sensible and satisfying resolution.

The laughs are dark, the puzzle steadily more engrossing and the surprises, just like Heist, are doozies, up to the finale.

Argentine writer-director Fabian Bielinsky seems to be a criminal mastermind. Luckily for society, Bielinsky uses his powers for good.

When you think you've figured out Bielinsky's great game, that's when you're in the most trouble: He's the con, and you're just the mark.

[Even after] the plot's spiralling, shimmering sleights of hand and its never-ending ruses and deceptions . . . the ending will still pull the rug out from under [you].

Bielinsky concocts a selection of tantalizing layers, from his Mamet-like dialogue to his chilly visuals.
