What King Of Thieves truly manages to do is to rob you of almost two hours of your time.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

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.

March 15, 2019
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]

March 1, 2019
A cast of late career British legends make this occasionally wobbly true crime caper seem sharper and funnier than it really is.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 1, 2019
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

King of Thieves isn't convincing, neither as a comedy nor an action film. [Full review in Spanish]

Michael Cane is precise, convincing and the best part of this film. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 28, 2019
It is good enough on an entertaining level. Particularly if you drop your guard, tamp down your curiosity, and let an accomplished ensemble of experienced hands charm the socks off you.

Rather than turning Michael Caine into an appropriate hero for the film, the filmmakers turn him into a confused soul. [Full Review in Spanish]

Come for the cast and you won't be disappointed.

...a robbery at Zimmer frame pace.

February 8, 2019
The real problem here is that these characters are inherently charmless, and therefore any small amount of entertainment is drowned out by their unethical (and somewhat confusing) actions.

There's some real, small pleasure in watching these old lions at work...

January 28, 2019
Although this infamous crime caper has a terrific cast, it's uneven and forgettable,
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 28, 2019
To borrow the brand of crude, hand-holding humor that the film so readily indulges in, King of Thieves is too flaccid to get the job done.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

It's a marvel to watch Caine, Courtenay, Broadbent and Gambon go at each other with an aplomb that dazzles.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

These stars are always a joy to watch; the pity is that the movie isn't entirely worthy of them.
