Critic Reviews for Thick as Thieves (The Code)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The dialogue is stilted, the plot as thin as Banderas's hair, and even the plethora of twists can't rescue the movie from mediocrity.

...a hopelessly uneven endeavor that's consistently buoyed by Freeman's mere presence...

The sadness created by this film could be cured only by its quick descent in well-deserved oblivion.

December 17, 2009 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

sloppy, lazy, and unable to keep up with its own con.

Don't let the big names fool you: The Code is limp enough a thriller to deserve the direct-to-video treatment it's received.

Audience Reviews for Thick as Thieves (The Code)

Antonio has still got it. He is as hot today as we was when I first saw him in Desperado. This is a really good movie, and very funny to boot.

I loved this movie. A sharp, tense, clever, stylish and exhilarating edge of your seat joy-ride. A pulse-pounding thinking man's thriller that snaps and sparks with action, humor and suspense. An unpredictable and keep you guessing adrenaline-rush. A very smart and thrilling heist drama that delivers with fantastic twist and turns. An excellent film that's very entertaining. It's very well-crafted and superbly performed by it's cast. It's riveting and dazzling whenever Freeman and Banderas act together in a scene. These two actors have wonderful chemistry. Antonio Banderas and Morgan Freeman are absolutely sensational. Robert Forester is terrific. Radha Mitchell is wonderful.

This one was pretty entertaining. Although it had a few huge turns and plot twists, they weren?t as much of a surprise to me as they should have been. Morgan Freeman is great as always, but Antonio Banderas left something to be desired. The story is simple to follow, but it felt like many aspects of this film were taken from other movies. Even though it felt a bit like a mosaic created from some other films I have already seen, it was still a fun one to watch. Check it out!
