Paying the Price for Freedom

Although he only has 10 months left on his prison sentence, "Raymond J. Cutter" (John Travolta) makes a deal with a drug dealer named "Keegan" (Anson Mount) to bribe a judge in order to get an early release. Of course, Keegan doesn't do things for free and Raymond knows only too well that he will have to make it up to him in some fashion quite soon. Sure enough, the price Keegan demands is that Raymond not only must duplicate a famous painting by Claude Monet but he must also steal the original from the museum and replace it with the copy. Although this is an extremely difficult task Raymond has to accept it if he wants to remain free—and there is an extremely important reason he needs out of prison. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a decent film which managed to successfully encompass two different subplots—at least for the most part. Likewise, John Travolta performed in his usual professional manner as did Christopher Plummer (as "Joseph Cutter"). Slightly above average.

Under-rated

This is a quiet film, a relationship drama with a low-key crime caper helping to propel the plot. It's a movie fundamentally reflecting on both family relationships and criminal relationships.

I won't bother to rehash the plot but will say that this movie is greatly under-rated; the acting and cinematography are excellent. The story is decent enough, dialogue is believable and the plot moves steadily onward, although as others have pointed out, there are no car chase scenes or the usual action fodder if that's what you are expecting. This is NOT an action film, though there are suspenseful moments--and it is understandable if that is what you thought you were getting. At it's heart the story is all about family ties, expectations, honor and survival, life changing choices...and impending family tragedy. Motives are logical and clearly understandable while the film manages to avoid maudlin sentiment or cheap thrills. while the plot moves steadily forward--even the twists work without being overly complicated. This one is not going to play tricks on you or over-work your brain, it's just good story-telling.

Overall a very good film, and one that is well-worth watching if you accept it as a heightened family drama and not an action/thriller or even (really) a suspense film. Travolta and most of the cast were at their best without being too subtle or over-wrought. The 3 main characters were the best and easily carried the film. Very much recommended.

It's not that bad after all..

A thief works with his father and son to forge a painting by Monet and steal the original. Together, they plan the heist of their lives. The Forger packs 3 really good performances by Christopher Plummer, Tye Sheridan and John Travolta and both the heist sequences and the drama really worked nicely and although it's about a bank heist it still has some emotion since a father is trying to connect with his son again but also his father and that worked really well for me. It's not one of Travolta's best it has problems and certain things could been better but as a whole it's a nice film and not a disappointment as i thought it was going to be.
