King of Thieves

Critics Consensus

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.

Critic Reviews for King of Thieves

All Critics (79) | Top Critics (18) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (52)

  • King of Thieves is executed without the expertise, care, technique or involuntary humor of an authentic crime story. [Full Review in Spanish]

    November 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's kind of a mishmash of tones... [But] these guys could just sit around and have tea and talk and it would be enormously watchable.

    September 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A bungled mess, disappointing given the cinematic nature of the story and the fine cast.

    June 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • What King Of Thieves truly manages to do is to rob you of almost two hours of your time.

    May 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Caine's legacy as the go-to Cockney criminal in the best thrillers of the 1960s and 1970s deserves better than this uneven blend of feel-good comedy, caper movie and Caine tribute show.

    May 8, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's laughs to be had watching these quasi-incompetent characters but they can't do enough to elevate the material into something more memorable.
