Critic Reviews for The King of Thieves

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (1)

Torn between jaunty genre hijinks and a bleaker streak of realism, it's a strangely stiff, lethargic account of a cracking tale.

Top Critic

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.

King of Thieves rattles along in diverting enough fashion. The old hits are welcome. Footage from the cast's back catalogue is integrated amusingly.

September 18, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The result is decidedly uneven and lacking in drama, with Courtenay giving a bumbling performance that is out-and-out comedy, while Broadbent tries to give us the chills.

Overall, it is certainly watchable and entertaining at times, just a bit plodding.

September 17, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a frustratingly clunky affair, and a tad uneven, tone-wise. In short, it's a wasted opportunity.
