King of Thieves really should have delivered way more cinematic swag than it does.VarietySeptember 19, 2018
Torn between jaunty genre hijinks and a bleaker streak of realism, it's a strangely stiff, lethargic account of a cracking tale.Stuff.co.nzOctober 18, 2018
King of Thieves has a passable crack at being a watchable and entertaining film, but is also ultimately let down by some pedestrian pacing and being far too in love with the one idea it has: That old blokes working as villains is inherently hilarious.Flicks.co.nzOctober 17, 2018

Overall, it is certainly watchable and entertaining at times, just a bit plodding.The Herald (Ireland)September 17, 2018
It's a frustratingly clunky affair, and a tad uneven, tone-wise. In short, it's a wasted opportunity.Observer (UK)September 16, 2018
There is one joke in King of Thieves, and it's that the thieves are old. That's it - that's the whole movie.Times (UK)September 14, 2018
This is a risky device, but it works, the postmodern playfulness sending an implicit message: it's OK to like Caine and company, but be repelled by the men they're playing.
