User Reviews

 
OK movie about a fake painting
10 December 2020 | by munki_See all my reviews

Average film with a rather unlikely protagonist, both the character and actor, and the supporting cast are annoying and unlikable as well. The plot is reasonable, a master forger forges a Rembrandt for a group of ass-hats, gets into a scuffle and then enters a trial in the UK.

It's all a bit underwhelming really. I liked the research and painting segments of the movie, but the rest of it wasn't too enjoyable.

5/10 average flick with nice imagery of painting.
