Critic Reviews for Gambit

All Critics (4)

Uma sacada genial no primeiro ato que eleva todo o restante do filme por contraste, além de trazer o trio principal afiadíssimo.

Fun, albeit dated, caper movie with well matched MacLaine and Caine.

Shirley MacLaine is miscast, but Michael Caine in a banner year that also saw him play the Oscar-nominated Alfie, gives a shrewd and suave performance in Roland Neame's heist picture.

Audience Reviews for Gambit

Better than most heist flicks - with a gymnastic MaClaine! Not too many surprises with the plot; but it's so well done I don't really care.

Hilarious, entertaining, beautifully shot and clever -- Gambit is a swiftly acted, fast-past, heist comedy that just gets better with age.

This is a great crime comedy which pairs Caine with MacLaine, and they are great together, the movie is fun and has a good story, I liked it.
