The Forger 2015

The Forger

Critics Consensus

So rote that its star is overshadowed by his wig, The Forger offers nary a thrill nor a scintilla of suspense that couldn't be overpowered by a decent basic-cable drama.

  • What is happening! If you check out "The Forger," you might well find yourself saying that time and again, as the entertainingly terrible performances keep piling up while the plot dares you not to chuckle at the audacity of it all.

  • It never for a single moment makes a plausible case for its own existence.

  • In attempting to spin out its competing storylines, the crime drama "The Forger" never quite gets a handle on either one.

    April 24, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Occasionally a movie comes along that's such an awkward compilation of ideas it fascinates: The Forger, a Boston-set melodrama involving cancer, Impressionist art and deadbeat dads, is only about half that good.

    April 24, 2015 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Travolta teeters between tough-guy menace and soulful, artistic intensity, but you don't ever believe that he can paint or that he can beat up a whole squad of younger, bigger, meaner dudes.

    April 23, 2015 | Full Review…
  • This limply directed tale emerges as a case study of an all too familiar type of art crime: the making of bad movies.
