Certainly has entertaining moments but does not meet demanding expectations.

If you like art history and want to discover and learn about one of the most impressive private collections of post-impressionism and modern art on the planet, you cannot miss the history of the Barnes Foundation... [Full review in Spanish]

By all means this is a B-movie, topped up with cheap has-beens...

An extremely run-of-the-mill comedic caper...
June 27, 2016
While neither the smartest nor the funniest film, it does give enough of both to warrant forgiveness.
June 20, 2014
With one contrived plot twist too many the final act descends into a fug of farce stealing the film's early promise.
June 20, 2014
Occasionally charming, yet completely unoriginal, this is dumb fun, no more, no less.
June 19, 2014
An appealing cast almost make the difference to this film, a sloppy half-hearted caper that never seems to break sweat.
June 19, 2014
An entertaining lark.

There's little that's unfamiliar about director Jonathan Sobol's switchbacking caper so he winningly cashes in on the strength of his cast, particularly Russell's world-weary con and a scene-stealing Stamp as the languidly insolent Brit.

Unsuccessfully marries the slick-suited jargoning of Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's trilogy with the gloves-off double-dealing of Guy Ritchie's early oeuvre.

Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon are short-changed by a script with a clever denouement that comes at the expense of the rest of the action, which is so self-consciously cool and vacuous, it's practically freeze-dried.
June 16, 2014
The strenuous presentation might remind you of Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, but the boisterous script has some legitimately amusing moments along the way ...
June 16, 2014
Kurt Russell returns in this blithely unambitious caper flick.
June 16, 2014
In the end, alas, it's the viewer who will leave feeling conned.

"The Art of the Steal" won't trick audiences into thinking they've seen anything new, but it's just clever enough to keep them distracted from realizing that they haven't.
March 25, 2014
There's only a moderate level of humor and suspense in this formulaic caper comedy that seems to borrow from a few genre predecessors.
March 24, 2014
There's more steal than art in 'The Art of the Steal,' a second-tier caper comedy-drama that pilfers its inspiration from such superior stories of crime and misdirection as 'The Usual Suspects' and 'Reservoir Dogs'...
