Absolutely one of my all-time favorites. The acting, the music, the dialogue: "Do you want a percentage or flat rate? Who's the mark? Doyle Lannigan... Flat Rate...."

I really enjoyed this movie and consider it one of the classics. At first, before watching it (I watched it in 2017) I thought that it will be some outdated movie and I wondered why I haven't even heard about it.

The Sting

3 Out Of 5

The Sting is a heist thriller about two con artists whose plan to take down the impossible might just be possible. The scrutiny in here isn't as convoluted or glorifying as the makers think but is undeniably impressive and breezy to encounter which comes with cons too, like the characters never seems to be in trouble and has a way out of every calculated conflicts; primary reason why audience feels disconnected with the viewers. It is short on technical aspects like sound department, cinematography and editing although has amazing costume design and background score in its favor. The writing is weak yet gripping with varied tactics of heists that helps keep the audience engaged in it. The screenplay by David S. Ward pitches an impactful heist tale that is unforgettable in its own way. George Roy Hill; the director, has done a marvelous job on executing the script which could have easily come off as a hoax. The performance is decently acted out by Paul Newman and Robert Redford in their parallel roles and Robert Shaw in a supporting role. The Sting has a viscous bite that spreads like fire in a forest for despite of being loosely written it certifiably makes it entertaining.

Funny, delightful, witty, thought-provoking, and aware of everything it's up to. The Sting is a stylish crime film that is for everyone. And, of course, Redford and Newman shine. It's just a bit convoluted in the first 20 minutes. Watch itFunny, delightful, witty, thought-provoking, and aware of everything it's up to. The Sting is a stylish crime film that is for everyone.
