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.

A wonderful caper film that the first-time out has you guessing what comes next. Unfortunately, it does not hold up on repeated viewings with all the surprises gone.

Way before Guy Ritchie's polished bad boy style and hugely complicated plot twists pulled in the punters, The Sting pioneered the genre.
