It's one of Mamet's best. It's also one of Hackman's best, most mercurial performances.

[Mamet] is a giant in several areas, but I'm not sure moviemaking is one of them.

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.

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.

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.

The story turns tedious as the characters take turns stabbing each other in the back. Every successive plot twist becomes easier to foresee.

Very disappointing new action flick by Mamet. Not worth a trip to the theatre for this one...

This is so incredibly below average, very disappointing. Once again the writing is at fault and it's just baffling because of who's at the helm.

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.

una cinta entretenida, bien llevada, mejor escrita, y con grandes actuaciones. Se necesita ms para pagar la entrada a la sala?

...enough to keep one's attention, certainly, but the film isn't nearly as persuasive as some of (Mamet's) previous work.
| Original Score: 6/10

The real pleasure is found in a cast of actors who are smart, energetic craftsmen that are good at their jobs.
