Trivia

At about 14 minutes in, Gramps, Will, and Ray are watching a movie on TV. The film is "D.O.A.", 1949, directed by Rudolph Mate, starring Edmond O'Brien. See more »

Goofs

Much is made of the Travolta character carefully selecting the perfect antique frame, mixing his own pigments using raw minerals, etc.. None of this has any effect on the plot. Travolta admits he will not create an exact copy, and regardless, the forgery is never inspected. See more »

Not bad to watch.
27 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

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.
