Review The Good Thief, directed by Neil Jordan (Mona Lisa, The Crying Game) is a remake of a famous 1955 French film named Bob Le Flambeur, by Jean-Pierre Melville. The Good Thief is drawn to the affectionate study of a character who is admirable in every way except that he cannot bring himself to stop breaking the law. But it is juicier, jazzier, with a more charismatic hero.

ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review Neil Jordan's The Good Thief works significantly better as a character piece than as a heist film. The movie, which is overplotted yet underwritten, cares more for its protagonist than for the circumstances he finds himself in. Unlike most caper films, The Good Thief expends little time and effort delving into the "nuts and bolts" details of the heist. We get some broad details, but, in the end, even attentive viewers will find themselves befuddled by what happens. This will undoubtedly cause some audience members to depart the theater in a state of frustration
