King of Thieves unites an incredible cast for a heist movie brimming with potential -- most of which, sadly, evaporates long before the end credits have started to roll.
The movie doesn't seem to be playing near you.

There's some real, small pleasure in watching these old lions at work...
It's a marvel to watch Caine, Courtenay, Broadbent and Gambon go at each other with an aplomb that dazzles.
The script (by Joe Penhall, based on a magazine article by Mark Seal) runs in fits and starts, but the camerawork from Danny Cohen keeps the mood lively during any lulls.
King of Thieves is a disappointing mess that lacks both suspense and a clear identity. Not even the occasional joy of seeing these fine actors riff with one another can save it.
With a cast this rich in experience and history and a fact-based heist of such enormous scale, King of Thieves sounds like a shake-and-bake classic in the making, which makes its pedestrian execution all the more puzzling to behold.
If only this post-heist section had more tension, suspense and surprise, "King" could have been a real contender.
Directed with a love for criminal procedural detail by James Marsh, the film has its humourous moments, but this...is essentially a hard drama about hard men who remain hard no matter how old they are.
The Hatton Gardens heist was a ballsy operation. You can't say the same about King of Thieves.
Michael Caine can barely keep this irregular film afloat. [Full Review in Spanish]
A cast of late career British legends make this occasionally wobbly true crime caper seem sharper and funnier than it really is.
A disappointingly dour affair and not exactly the rollicking adventure about a bunch of old geezers pulling off a successful heist that we might have expected.
King of Thieves isn't convincing, neither as a comedy nor an action film. [Full review in Spanish]
