The Forger

"All you are is a liar and a fake." You have to give John Travolta credit for trying to keep his career alive, and the latest attempt is a heist thriller called The Forger. In this one, Travolta seems to be channeling a little bit of Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction as Cutter, the world’s best art forger recently released from prison after striking a deal with a crime syndicate to 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. And he ends up needing help from his father (Christopher Plummer) and son (Tye Sheridan). This starts of gritty and promising, but then makes and odd tonal switch. Maybe it's just a bad trailer though. Watch?

Here's the first trailer for Philip Martin's The Forger, originally from Yahoo:

The Forger

The Forger is directed by Philip Martin ("Prime Suspect") and written by Richard D’Ovidio (Exit Wounds, The Call). The film tells the story of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (John Travolta) who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, Will Cutter (Tye Sheridan). Ray and his father, Joseph Cutter (Christopher Plummer), must come together to carry out one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release. Abigail Spencer and Jennifer Ehle also star in the film which hits DirecTV on March 26th and will then hit limited theaters and VOD on April 24th.

    Dear lord, the hair, why?
  • The poster has some of the best photoshop effects of 1998.

      Don't judge the poster, at least its not trying to look real while there is a crapload of CGI in it like all the blockbuster posters out there, yes it looks like it was from the 90s but that's not a bad thing specifically.
      • I was trying not to write something about Travolta's face, he looks like a beatnik vampire.
  • Looking past the craptastic snark of "give Travolta credit for trying to keep his career alive..", this one seems like it could be pretty good. Although it looks to be filmed and set in Boston, it seems to also have tonal similarities to The Fighter and The Town. And it's got Tye Sheridan, who really isa young one to watch.

    I feel echo of 'Family Business' (1989.; with Sean Connery, Dusting Hoffman and Matthew Broderick - three generations of one family engaged in theft). So, nothing new, but, anyway, it could be first decent movie for Travolta after a long period of time ...
