Consensus: Michael Caine's excellent performance makes Flawless something more than an average heist movie.

Dave Calhoun
Time Out

The problem is that as heist movies go this is about as captivating as watching someone dodge a bus fare. Almost everything about the film is second-rate: the direction, the plotting, the intrusive modernist production design.

The inspired pairing of Demi Moore and Michael Caine as a pair of thieves in the diamond-heist semi-caper movie Flawless goes a long way toward overcoming the film's slack, leisurely pacing.

A mopey character study only half-convincingly tricked out as a heist thriller.

Minneapolis Star Tribune

For about 100 of its 108 minutes, this film treats the viewer to a stylish, suspenseful roller coaster peppered with all manner of ugly, money-grubbing corporate types.

[It's got] some neat little twists and turns.

Empire Magazine

There's little by way of thrills. Still, as a caper with a great cast and clever premise, Flawless works, despite its, um, flaws.

Screenwriter Edward Anderson drops the South African angle in favor of more conventional developments and has a hard time bringing this across the finish line without a number of implausibilities.

Those of us who'll happily watch Caine in pretty much anything will find enough pleasures here.

Daniel Etherington

Ignore the dull framing device and this is a watchable period crime drama. Pity about the dull, oft-used title though.

Demi Moore is never allowed to do an accent again. The script may account for some of the inconsistencies by remarking that she's a expatriated American,… More

Enjoyable heist thriller with strong performances from Moore and Caine, though the ending is slightly disappointing.

60s period detail is lovingly created in this woefully unappreciated "gem" of a movie about a jewel heist. Michael Caine is great as expected, but so… More
