This was a really fun and enjoyable movie. I laughed a lot and I enjoyed watching the adventures of these characters. Matthias Schweigh?fer did a great job directing this. All the actors were great. The score by Steve Mazzaro and Hans Zimmer is really good too.
The safecracking scenes were really interesting. The editing was also great and the movie had a good pace and balance. The writing also had some interesting aspects that I liked a lot. I liked the vibe and world of this movie. Overall I enjoyed the movie.
This is a prequel to Army of The Dead (2021) but you do not need to watch that movie before watching this to understand or enjoy it. This is a really good prequel. I think this movie can work really well even for the people who did not like or enjoy Army of The Dead. It is in the same universe and there are some interesting connections but they have different vibes.

As the title says, Army of Thieves is the typical light heist movie such as Ocean's, Now You See Me among others of the genre but takes everything that makes those movies good and put them on a higher level. It presents an interesting plot which makes you want to invest time on the movi, even considering that the first act is kinda slow, but after all the presentation and setting the plot, you go down full speed to the end. Never felt rushed, you can see and feel the team as a team. They have that chemistry even tho they are quite different from each other.
The best of the movie was Dieter by far. It will make you see it with different eyes and understand it better when you watch Army of The Dead again.
Army of Thieves is a great prequel but watch it after Army of The Dead. It will make you appreciate more both movies.

Nice movie, and nicely connected to the sequel. Has a fun vibe to it as well. The start is really capturing, and Nathalie Emmanuals addition is great.
