TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Far-fetched, frantically overstuffed, and unfunny, Plastic seems to use its title as a goal as much as a description.

Movie Info

High octane from start to finish, PLASTIC tells the story of intelligent and brazen Sam (Speleers), who leads a ring of recruited university students to become credit card thieves to supplement their income. They inadvertently rob a notorious gangster named Marcel (Kretschmann) and are then forced to up their game 10 times the amount stolen with interest. They take their scam on the road to Miami, the city of "high stakes" to pay off their debt. After a series of unfortunate mistakes, Sam's team falls short of their debt and they set their sights on a daring jewelry heist. Sam now needs to finish the scam, while turning the tables on Marcel before everyone in the team goes down. (C) Arc Entertainment

Critic Reviews for Plastic

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (7)

The title says it all in this cheap, laborious junior heist thriller from British B-movie journeyman Julian Gilbey.

Variety
Top Critic

As mindless entertainment goes, it's a pretty watchable time-passer.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

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.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Top Critic

It's hard to escape the sense that "Plastic" is itself a cheap knockoff, but the point is not to look too closely.

New York Times
Top Critic

For a film with shootouts, heists, and high-speed chases, Julian Gilbey's Plastic is a strangely lifeless affair.

Village Voice
Top Critic

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.
