Art Heist is yet another extremely clichéd action flick starring a Baldwin brother.

Surprisingly, though, it’s pretty good. Considering William Baldwin is the least prolific of the Baldwin brothers as of late, I’d think that he would be the one getting the short end of the script stick. But it appears that the Backdraft connection is still scoring him decently scripted, well-budgeted films that fit his acting talents quite well, as Art Heist is a lot better than it really should be.

After an obscenely expensive painting is stolen from a museum in Spain, the painting’s owner brings his American agent Sandra Walker (Pompeo) over to investigate. Walker leaves her daughter with her detective husband Bruce (Baldwin), who she has recently separated from. Once there, Sandra is teamed up with an art teacher who she once had a fling with. Trough her snooping, she comes to believe that a Russian mobster is responsible for the heists. As for Baldwin, he doesn’t stay out of the picture long, as he flies out to Spain with the daughter in order to assist his wife in the investigation when he believes that she’s putting herself in harm’s way.

As we’ve all come to expect, a kidnapping will happen, double crossings will occur, and Baldwin and his wife will make-up to end the film. That doesn’t matter, though. What matters is how those actions are arrived to. In Art Heist’s case, everything pans out quite well.

Of all the Baldwins, William has begun to be quite reliable in these movies. Compared to Stephen and Daniel, he doesn’t take on many roles, but when he does, they usually turn out to be relatively fun rides. That’s exactly the case with Art Heist. Fluffy and easy to sit through, you’ve probably seen it all before, but at least in my case, you can’t help but enjoy.

DVD: Barebones.
