A fine but slight film weakened by light characterization and undercooked suspense. This period piece remains oddly humorous with good turn-ins by Falk, Sorvino and especially a perturbed Oates. Medium Friedkin.
"The Brink's Job" problem is, it doesn't know what it wants to be: a comedy or a crime movie. At the end it is none of both. No fish; no meat. One of Friedkin's very weak performances. Peter Falk, Gena Rowlands, Paul Sorvino, Warren Oates; big names, but they have almost no impact. At the end it's all too little. Not convincing. Boring.
