The film boasts several turbocharged chase-and-escape sequences, alongside understated character analysis.
Armed with a screenplay adapted from a Martin Prinz novel based on a true story, writer-director Benjamin Heisenberg has crafted something as serious, quietly determined, and surprisingly compelling as his criminal protagonist.
This story of real-life Austrian criminal Johann Kastenberger is both tranquil and gripping.

The Robber isn't all it could be, but there's a kernel of a great film in it.
Johann operates with rules of the onscreen gangster ... [Yet he] is a noir protagonist, trapped and doomed by his past.
