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 – he must 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!
User Reviews: People expecting a more action oriented heist type of movie will probably be disappointed. "The Forger" leans towards family drama territory.
Now, if you can get past Travolta’s look in this picture (I couldn’t help getting distracted by his awkward wig and goatee) and don’t expect much, you’ll probably be mildly entertained.
Christopher Plummer is very likable in this, and his presence helps the movie a lot.
Overall, straight to video material.
