      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A curiously charmless caper that squanders a starry cast and screenplay by the Coen brothers, this Gambit doesn't pay off.

      Lanfranco C It is funny to compare London and Texas in a matter of art! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Henrietta M What a cast! What a shame !! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Emma B Turned off after half an hour due to a boring nonexistent storyline, unlikeable characters and Diaz's awful fake accent Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/04/23 Full Review Eugen S konnte was werden, ist aber nicht( Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable, light-hearted comedy with good writing and skilled comedic performances by some big names. You can watch it with your grandparents too. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review adel z 4 stars!!! This is the best example that ratings are not to be taken seriously. The movie doesn't deserve these ratings at all. Not even a bad student project deserves 18%. I watched this movie two times since its release and I enjoyed it each time very much. The heist is smart enough and well presented. There are enough funny moments, although a few were exaggerated, when trying to show Colin Firth's character in a ridiculous way. Still, all actors did a great job, especially Cameron Diaz who was perfect portraying a Texan woman. I give it 4 stars. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Noel Murray The Dissolve Firth and Diaz, game as they are, look lost and disappointed most of the time during Gambit, as though they pictured themselves making Burn After Reading, and instead found themselves in The Ladykillers. Rated: 1.5/5 May 27, 2014 Full Review Jesse Hassenger AV Club When the movie veers away from the verbal gymnastics of a bunch of colorful dopes out-dumbing one another and into overindulged farce, the specificity of the Coens' writing begins to fade. Rated: C+ May 1, 2014 Full Review Nicolas Rapold New York Times This nominal remake of the 1966 art caper that starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine has all the fizz of flat soda ... Apr 27, 2014 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Never subtle and always over-the-top, nothing about this unnecessary remake suggests anything but a routine and painfully dull "madcap romp" in need of a distinct personality driving the production. Rated: 1/4 Aug 15, 2022 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a disappointingly forgettable endeavor that could (and should) have been so much better. Rated: 2/4 Jun 1, 2019 Full Review Daniel Green CineVue A gamble on Gambit may not come off for everyone, but the rewards are there for a lucky (and persistent) few.
