Movie Reviews

  • this spirited, fleet-footed heist tale feels like a lower-rent "Mission: Impossible" or "Ocean's" movie, but its intriguing puzzle and likable characters make it a pleasant distraction
    3 of 5 by Jeffrey M. Anderson [Common Sense Media ]
  • the movie aims high and inevitably falls short, working better as a chronicle of Spain's sporting success than the caper at hand. Still, modest rewards can be gleaned from its ballsy enthusiasm
    3 of 5 by James Marsh [South China Morning Post ]
  • the film misses the opportunity for a suspenseful interweaving of sports spectatorship and its characters' high-stakes gambits
    1.5 of 4 by Pat Brown [Slant Magazine ]
  • Spanish heist film 'The Vault' satisfyingly fills the gap between 'Ocean's' and 'Mission: Impossible' installments; In 'The Vault,' director Jaume Balagueró stages a muscular, thrilling heist that only falls flat when it takes itself too seriously
    3.5 of 5 by Todd Gilchrist [What to Watch ]
  • Jaume Balaguero's glossy caper recalls past heist movies without recapturing their suspense, idiosyncrasy or cast chemistry
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
  • Balaguero manages to mount a few highlights to keep the viewing experience engrossing. He can't come up with a satisfying conclusion, but the ride to the final moment delivers surges of suspense and traditional acts of criminal planning
    Review rate : B- by Brian Orndorf [ ]
  • "The Vault" isn't airtight, but it works as a slick piece of escapist entertainment; Liam Cunningham and Freddie Highmore lead the sparkling cast of thieves just crazy enough to try to claim treasure buried deep under the Bank of Spain
    3 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • "The Vault" is less an "Ocean's Eleven" heist movie content to surprise and amuse the audience, and more a Jean-Pierre Melville-style riff in the vein of "Bob le Flambeur".. that lays all the cards on the table and lets the narrative suck us in
    3.5 of 5 by Jason Pirodsky [The Prague Reporter ]
  • "The Vault" filled with suspense, thrilling escapes; It's fun, impressively shot and designed, and well-acted
    Review rate : B by James Verniere [Boston Herald ]
  • "The Vault" doesn't break from conventional heist cliches – seldom do they ever – nor is the lack of character development forgivable, but at least audiences can suspend their disbelief and enjoy the ride for the over-the-top nonsensical movie it is
    Review rate : B- by Nate Adams [The Only Critic ]
