Enjoyable if Predictable Hesit Drama Stuffed Full of Old British Actors - King of Thieves review by PV

Spoiler Alert
08/02/2019

I enjoyed this film. Yes,, it's slight and yes, we know the ending because it happens as the news story was famous (in the UK anyway).

But it's a nice enough watch, with some old con characters played by loads of white men (which I enjoyed in this age which activetly discriminates against them and parachutes in women and ethnic minorities in absurd roles).

Michael Caine must be 85. Tom Courtney 80. Others here like Paul Whitehouse and Ray Winstone only 60.

They use footage from their old movies a bit near the end, which is fun.

However, the film SEXY BEAST is way superior - it also features and heist and also features Ray Winstone, and Ian McShane who wouldn't have fitted in here too.

SO my advice is to watch the 2 movies back to back. This first, then the 5 star SEXY BEAST.

This is 3.5 stars rounded up.

Excellent Cast - King of Thieves review by DH

Spoiler Alert
12/02/2019

I think that overall I prefer the earlier "The Hatton Garden Job" film, but to be fair King of Thieves has a better cast, some good lines, and is probably more true to life, being a bit grittier and darker than the earlier film.

Overall a good entertaining romp with some clever flashback scenes, recommended.

Spoiler Alert

Quite enjoyed this one, there is quite a bit of swearing, but I guess as it's Criminals and Londoners I guess to be expected
