Critic Reviews of "Flawless"Time OutNovember 28, 2008
The problem is that as heist movies go this is about as captivating as watching someone dodge a bus fare. Almost everything about the film is second-rate: the direction, the plotting, the intrusive modernist production design.Minneapolis Star TribuneJuly 16, 2008
For about 100 of its 108 minutes, this film treats the viewer to a stylish, suspenseful roller coaster peppered with all manner of ugly, money-grubbing corporate types.Chicago ReaderApril 25, 2008
Screenwriter Edward Anderson drops the South African angle in favor of more conventional developments and has a hard time bringing this across the finish line without a number of implausibilities.Miami HeraldApril 11, 2008
The inspired pairing of Demi Moore and Michael Caine as a pair of thieves in the diamond-heist semi-caper movie Flawless goes a long way toward overcoming the film's slack, leisurely pacing.Ebert & RoeperMarch 31, 2008
[It's got] some neat little twists and turns.Seattle TimesMarch 28, 2008
Those of us who'll happily watch Caine in pretty much anything will find enough pleasures here.East Bay ExpressApril 28, 2011
A mopey character study only half-convincingly tricked out as a heist thriller.Empire MagazineNovember 28, 2008
There's little by way of thrills. Still, as a caper with a great cast and clever premise, Flawless works, despite its, um, flaws.Film4November 28, 2008
Ignore the dull framing device and this is a watchable period crime drama. Pity about the dull, oft-used title though.Times (UK)November 28, 2008
Fatuous and soulless.GuardianNovember 28, 2008
You will need a very sweet tooth for this kind of thing, and, to be quite frank, the heist itself is not dramatised all that excitingly or clearly. But I quite like thrillers featuring enormous circular vault doors.Daily Telegraph (UK)November 28, 2008
Calling a diamond-heist movie Flawless is a valiant choice - especially when it's anything but. Suspense is essential to this genre, but here you couldn't care less what happens next.
