Critic Reviews for The King of Thieves
King of Thieves really should have delivered way more cinematic swag than it does.
Torn between jaunty genre hijinks and a bleaker streak of realism, it's a strangely stiff, lethargic account of a cracking tale.
King of Thieves has a passable crack at being a watchable and entertaining film, but is also ultimately let down by some pedestrian pacing and being far too in love with the one idea it has: That old blokes working as villains is inherently hilarious.
The greatest mystery is how, with so much talent onboard, the crime of the century became a movie of the week.
The audience is asked to settle for a movie that's interested in eliciting nothing more than their titters and pity.
Wearing its influences on its sleeve, The King of Thieves decides to cash in on the genre's previous glories while forgetting to bring any sense of style or grit to proceedings itself, leading to a disappointingly rote and conventional crime-caper.
