"A slick and thoroughly enjoyable con-artist movie."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Driven by a plot that's so tightly wound, we cannot look away for wanting to know what will happen next and who is double-crossing whom."
‑ Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic
"numerous twists and turns, but remains fun"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews

‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Story and style both keep viewers on their toes."
‑ Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine

"A delightful, charming, confidently made confidence flick."
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"[Even after] the plot's spiralling, shimmering sleights of hand and its never-ending ruses and deceptions . . . the ending will still pull the rug out from under [you]."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"If you dig on David Mamet's mind this movie and enjoy!"
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"The laughs are dark, the puzzle steadily more engrossing and the surprises, just like Heist, are doozies, up to the finale."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"As an entertainment, the movie keeps you diverted and best of all, it lightens your wallet without leaving a sting."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"An Argentinian, Mamet-like confidence-game movie."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
