I love con artist movies, but they're all kind of the same. Always at the end there's the moment where they reveal the bigger con that you didn't know about. Since you know it's coming you spend a lot of time second-guessing everything. So, it's pretty easy to figure out what's going on in The Sting. But it's entertaining anyway. And I like Scott Joplin, so that's a plus.
If Sundance Kid brought Redford fame, this one propelled him into stardom. The story is well crafted and executed with good pacing, while the beautiful bricks-and-mortar Chicago backdrop lifts the cinematography to a great level. Redford and Newman once again prove they're the best on screen duo ever.
A 30s throwback with a distinctly 70s undercurrent, THE STING happened to walk away with Best Picture, and 40 years on, one may wonder why. No doubt, it's a good entertainment; watching the careful crafting of the central con is good fun, and the cast makes for amiable company, and Robert Shaw for a good villain. It just doesn't add up to much (and it's longish), and George Roy Hill's direction is smooth, but undistinguished. But, sometimes good entertainment (and Scott Joplin) is sufficient.
A modest but engrossing little film that pulls us into the plot thanks to a fine cast and a fun screenplay. The plot and characters are familiar, but the script keeps the twists coming and they may not be all that original, but at least they are unexpected and make the plot flow enjoyably. Newman practically steals the show as a professional con artist, while Redford is also decent as a charming grifter. Hill's direction is simple but works most of the times, although some techniques are dated.
Yeah, fun. Classy fun, even. Substance, well, that's another matter. And if The Sting was the first of its kind, it's a shame that so many films and shows have since been emulating that con artist twist. It's like hearing an amazing joke hundreds of times for years, and then going to see the film where the joke originated from.
