About the Movie

The world's best art forger (John Travolta) makes a deal with a crime syndicate to get an early release from prison, but in return he must pull off an impossible heist: forge a painting by Claude Monet, steal the original from a museum, and replace it with a replica so perfect that no one will notice. He enlists the help of his father (Christopher Plummer) and son (Tye Sheridan), and together they plan the heist of their lives!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Mr. Travolta teeters between tough-guy menace and soulful, artistic intensity, but you don't ever believe that he can paint or that he can beat up a whole squad of younger, bigger, meaner dudes. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Apr 23, 2015

Rotten: The art-heist plot is pretty by-the-numbers, but Travolta nearly saves it with his doomed air of paternal helplessness. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 23, 2015

Rotten: Nothing feels fresh here - not even Christopher Plummer hamming it up as a crusty-coot grandpa - and Philip Martin's routinely polished direction only underscores the cliche-composting of Richard D'Ovidio's script. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Sep 11, 2014

Rotten: In attempting to spin out its competing storylines, the crime drama "The Forger" never quite gets a handle on either one. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Apr 24, 2015

Customer Reviews


I've watched the movie four times so far (twice at the theater and twice at home) and have enjoyed it every time. I thought Travis Aaron Wade was outstanding but I'm #OTW which may have affected my objectivity...LOL. As far as the rest of the cast, I particularly loved Christopher Plummer as the crotchety grandfather and Tye Sheridan as the son. It's an entertaining movie with a great cast! Watch it!

Don't critic if you Have Not watched the movie!

First of all this movie was well done, had a wonderful story it's worth every cent! Travolta was amazing and he has really come into his own as an actor. And last if you have Not Watched a movie you should not be writing a review period!

I finished it.

It's better than a 1 star. But not by much. It's a mix of a sentimental and very predictable flat plot.
