Army of Thieves (2021) - Rotten Tomatoes

Army of Thieves (2021)



Critic Consensus: Army of Thieves doesn't reinvent the heist thriller, but director-star Matthias Schweighöfer proves an appealing presence on both sides of the camera.

Movie Info

In this prequel to Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead, small-town bank teller Dieter gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol's most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.


Critic Reviews for Army of Thieves

All Critics (92) | Top Critics (23)

A prequel that benefits from being only loosely connected to anything we've already seen, this is a fun, light romp that leans on likeable characters rather than CG spectacle.

It moves very quickly and it's sharp.

Schweighöfer's prequel loses the winning combination this charming character possessed in Snyder's flick, in lieu of a yawn-inducing vault toward nothingness.

November 2, 2021 | Full Review…

It's a likeable, generally pacey movie with some energetic action sequences (a chase through Prague borders on exciting) but its strength also exposes its greatest weakness.

November 2, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Thanks to Schweighöfer's stylish, "Italian Job"-influenced directing, a sense of its own ridiculous nature and some fabulous performances by the charming and good-looking supporting cast, "Army of Thieves" is the very definition of entertaining...

October 29, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's a glossy, new-school heist flick that's high on energy but low on sensible narrative... not to say there's nothing to recommend, as Schweighöfer and Emmanuel are charming on screen, and the film's comedic notes brighten an otherwise overplayed story.
