On RogerEbert.com, Sheila O'Malley rated it 7.5/10 and said
A mostly satisfying entry in the art heist genre.
Not a bad, nice looking art heist movie with some ok characters. For a straight to stream/DVD release it is watchable.
It appears that stealing expensive art-work is fairly easy and there is no real jeopardy to the task and even climaxes to the film are fairly tame, but as an easy afternoon watch it just about entertains.
MGN Review 6/10
