The world's best art forger (John Travolta) makes a deal with a crime syndicate to get an early release from prison, but in return he must pull off an impossible heist - he must forge a painting by Claude Monet, steal the original from a museum, and replace it with a replica so perfect that no one will notice. He enlists the help of his father (Christopher Plummer) and son (Tye Sheridan) and together they plan the heist of their lives!Written by

John Travolta's character Raymond Cutter is supposed to have a Boston accent which isn't very believable when he does it and he also goes in and out of it through the movie. See more »
I just never see you guys hug, or say you love each other.
Yeah, well I don't do that. But he knows.
I didn't tell your grandmother either. But she knew. Why? Because words don't mean shit in this world, Will. It's what a person does for you that counts.

So, deep in the heart of this picture, it's about a man trying to spend more time with his son. It's very touching.
John Travolta overall is good in this movie. He plays an incarcerated art forger who was release from prison early thanks to an old criminal contact who needs him to forge something for him while all the forger wants to do is make up for lost time with his son.
I really like the parts where Travolta's character is preparing for the heist to steel the painting and replace it with his forgery which is where this movie differs from other heist movies as it goes into what it's like to be an art forger.
Reminds me of the Art of steel starring Kurt Russell who like Travolta, I have not seen star in a movie in ages.
Not a bad movie to catch.
