Critic Reviews for Plastic
The title says it all in this cheap, laborious junior heist thriller from British B-movie journeyman Julian Gilbey.
As mindless entertainment goes, it's a pretty watchable time-passer.
A frothy little heist movie from Britain that starts off with great promise, only to devolve midway into an empty derivative shell of a film.
It's hard to escape the sense that "Plastic" is itself a cheap knockoff, but the point is not to look too closely.
For a film with shootouts, heists, and high-speed chases, Julian Gilbey's Plastic is a strangely lifeless affair.
All champagne and strippers, conspicuous consumption and witless machismo, Plastic is a contemporary British heist movie that already feels dated, as if it were made before the bubble burst on Guy Ritchie's comic book gangster voyeurism.
Audience Reviews for Plastic
The guy that did "Lonely place to Die" (worth a watch) comes with this fairly well balanced movie with only a slight snags in the casting dept (cast actors for ACTING not because they look cute in a swimsuit kids) but overall well shot, directed, and paced.
Evidence that a heist movie (especially a moronic one) cannot work when all the characters range from moderately to thoroughly despicable.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
