Critic Reviews for The Good Thief
While Jordan's repeated freeze-frames try a little too hard for nonchalance, the overall cocktail of Gallic insouciance and American film noir grit delivers such relaxant properties you forgive a few foibles.
Mr. Jordan has lovingly recreated much of what glittered in the hard French thrillers that once starred Delon and Belmondo, and provided a superbly customized vehicle for the salty charms of ashtray-voiced Nick Nolte.
It's a heist film with a muddled plot, a character study with no personality.
Rumpled and dissolute, Nolte shambles through this gracefully atmospheric crime film with a cool poignancy that verges on the comic.
With his haggard good looks and bearish presence, Nolte is the main event in this colorful three-ring circus of a heist picture.
Audience Reviews for The Good Thief
A movie that tried really hard for the "cool" factor, complete with a "cool" french soundtrack. It's a decent watch. It may have been much better with a better lead? I wasn't buying the suave gambler/thief played by Nick Nolte..but that's just me, maybe. I'm not really a fan.
while the story was solid and the end was very good, the script was awful, the acting sub par, and the directing by niel jordan distractingly bad. some give and some take makes for an average film. great semi-cameo by ralph fiennes.
A stylish, tense, sexy and electrifying crime thriller. Explosive, smart, bold, funny and exciting. Nick Nolte has never been better. Gives his best performance in years. He just gets better as the years go on showing impressive and undeniable star power. A great cast of actors. Ralph Fiennes and Tchecky Kayrow turn in great performances. An totally enjoyable flick. A excellemt movie. It's one of those rare pieces of film noir that makes for good entertainment pleasure. A smooth, character-driven and absolutely exhilerating flick.
