Audience Reviews for The Forger

I have a high interest in the subject of art forgery....always wondered what it would be like to have great skill used in the service of someone else's vision, but I honestly couldn't stick with this movie long enough to find out.

Josh Hutcherson did a great job in The Hunger Game and I curious to see what he was doing. Unfortunately the experience feels like a bad Lifetime TV movie.

The Forger is about a teenager wanders into Carmel, California, where he is soon introduced to the art-forgery community. The main problem with this movie is the lack of conflict for our main character. It doesn't matter that he's homeless, beat up his girlfriend cousin, or is being used everything is worked for him without lifting a finger. The plot lacks any real focus being all over the place never telling a good story. Hutcherson character over reacts to everything, like when he sees a teacher taking Panettiere to class and telling her to get to class results in him getting punched. The characters are poorly written and idiotic, Pantettiere brother seems to be cool with Hutcherson punching him twice and dating his sister despite only sharing one scene before they did. It poorly written, but it harmless and will satisfy anyone would doesn't want compelling characters and a good plot.

The cast acting is bad and bland. Everybody stays to the script, it simply feels like everybody was in it just for the pay check. No one does a good job in the acting department, but they never get your nerves and are likable at least. The film has a nice scenery and artwork to show off, though they don't add the movie. This will probably appeal to teens more, as long as they don't expect much from the experience.

The Forger has all the quality of a bad TV movie that'll likely appeal more to teens with low expectations. Your best chance is to simply watch something else.

Absolutely gorgeous cinematography, great acting, and decent plot... however, the script is so problematic with so many bizarre moments that would never happen in real life... that I had to suspend my belief during many moments. When I watch films, I like to lose myself in the story and forget reality for two hours. Due to the lack of believability, I was reminded constantly like a smack in the face that this is just a fictional movie. There is a reason this was a straight to DVD release.
