February 12, 2016
A faithful remake, a spirited updating, and a deft, colorful, thoroughly entertaining heist film swimming in character and atmosphere, Neil Jordan's The Good Thief (2002)... may not be his best film, but it is one of his most purely enjoyable.

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.

Nolte's hard lived, leather-lined face looks like a Muncie road map, and fits robber Bob to each crease.

Es casi una película hecha por divertimento, lo cual no está nada mal, pero no hay que pedirle mucho más que eso.

Ao contrário do impecável anti-herói do original, Nick Nolte confere vulnerabilidade ao protagonista e, no processo, leva esta refilmagem a superar a produção de 1955.

A fine film: Jordan creates the seedy ambience and Nolte provides the complex performance that together carry this film through a few minor rough patches.

Watching an actor at the top of his game is a pleasure even if the film is only good, not great.

Takes some of the big clichés of contemporary moviemaking and makes them feel graceful, if not always profound.

Cool to the bone, a stylish and slick heist film that's also a deep character study and a beautiful tribute to the French Riviera.

The Good Thief has a shambling grace to it, both jazzy and gritty at the same time.

Discount its distinctly casual approach to the mechanics of a multi-million Euro robbery, and it's not bad at all.

With its noir, European genes ... [it's] the good oil on good heist movies.
