Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film is so good-natured, so obviously aware of everything it's up to, even its own picturesque frauds, that I opt to go along with it.
Fresh: Extremely handsome production values and a great supporting cast round out the virtues.
Fresh: As for Newman and Redford, they have developed a form of instant communication. Words are not as important as they way they look at each other. Call it as snow job or call it acting, it is very pleasing to watch.
Fresh: The movie has a nice, light-fingered style to it.
Best movie. Everyone to enjoy. I never get sick of it. Newman and Redford are a dynamic DUo
One Of The Best
You can't go wrong with The Sting. This is a must have for any growing digital collection. No need to traditionally "review" this title - just buy it now. Hopefully, this means Universal Studios is on board with preparing other, more recent, classics for iTunes - like Jurassic Park, Back to the Future and more.
This is one of the best con artist films ever made. It has great exposition, acting, and plot. Please watch.
