King of Thieves

Critics Consensus

King of Thieves unites an incredible cast for a heist movie brimming with potential -- most of which, sadly, evaporates long before the end credits have started to roll.

  • It's kind of a mishmash of tones... [But] these guys could just sit around and have tea and talk and it would be enormously watchable.

  • There's some real, small pleasure in watching these old lions at work...

    January 30, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • It's a marvel to watch Caine, Courtenay, Broadbent and Gambon go at each other with an aplomb that dazzles.

  • The script (by Joe Penhall, based on a magazine article by Mark Seal) runs in fits and starts, but the camerawork from Danny Cohen keeps the mood lively during any lulls.

    January 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • King of Thieves is a disappointing mess that lacks both suspense and a clear identity. Not even the occasional joy of seeing these fine actors riff with one another can save it.

    January 25, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • With a cast this rich in experience and history and a fact-based heist of such enormous scale, King of Thieves sounds like a shake-and-bake classic in the making, which makes its pedestrian execution all the more puzzling to behold.
