The forger 2014 crime drama full movies
Raymond Cutter, a second-generation criminal, cuts a deal with an underworld art dealer to get released early from prison to spend time with his son who has a inoperable brain tumor. He must forge a copy of Monet's Woman with a Parasol - Madame Monet and Her Son and switch it with the real one, with the help of his son and father, to repay the syndicate that arranged his release.
The Forger premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12, 2014. Two days before the premiere, 'Saban Films' acquired the U.S. distribution rights for over $2 million.
The Forger received mostly negative reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a 9% rating, with an average score of 4.2/10, based on 43 reviews. The consensus reads: "So rote that its star is overshadowed by his wig, The Forger offers nary a thrill nor a scintilla of suspense that couldn't be overpowered by a decent basic-cable drama." On Metacritic, the film has a score of 32 out of 100, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews", based on 16 reviews from critics. IGN awarded it a score of 4.5 out of 10, saying "The Forger, starring John Travolta, goes through the motions, but isn't the real deal."
