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.
this 'one last job' serves equally as a metaphor for a Britain rapidly losing its greatness.
The film pretends to be sophisticated, but only its interpreters are. [Full Review in Spanish]
Geriatric Lock Stock.
A fun couple of hours and proof that, often with mainstream cinema, a classy ensemble can paper over the cracks of even the most rote or familiar of scenarios.
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.
King of Thieves rattles along in diverting enough fashion. The old hits are welcome. Footage from the cast's back catalogue is integrated amusingly.
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.
