The problem here is that not only is Colin Barnicle's series formally stale but it never quite figures out what story to tell.
"Stale" shouldn't be a word used to describe the retelling of the world's largest art heist, but [in] the series' lowest points, it undeniably is. However, there are enough narrative highs to make it worth watching.
Filmmakers and brothers Colin and Nick Barnicle demonstrate a keen eye for dramatic storytelling from the very start
In all, this makes for a fascinating portrait of an incident that lives on in the memory of a city that has both high culture and organized crime encoded in its DNA.
Although This Is A Robbery is a true crime docuseries, it has a different feel than the murder-related ones Netflix produces.
There's little new to add to the story. Even so, it loses nothing in the retelling, and the accumulating weight of time passing gives the story renewed force.
This is a Robbery is most illuminating when exploring the motivations of thieves who pilfer priceless one-of-a-kind artworks.
Audience Reviews for This Is a Robbery: The World's Biggest Art Heist: Season 1
22h agoExtremely slow for some facts that can be quicker checked On google. Not worth the time.
3d agoSomewhat interesting, but at times unfocused, look at a case I knew nothing about. The nature of this case encourages the old tried and true tradition of "throwing stuff against a wall to see what sticks", and the doc heads down a few of these seemingly far fetched rabbit holes. I'd have probably rated this higher years ago but the true crime doc field has become so saturated that it is much harder to stand out. 5.5/10
