“Robbig Mussolini” is an hour-and-a-half film with a captivating storyline, but it fails to execute. Even though it’s a heist movie but it does not have the enthralling element and relies on proven methods. The way in which the events are planned is straightforward and therefore isn’t able to captivate.
The plot attempts to make the appearance of a seemingly impossible heist against the context to World War II, which creates a remarkably predictable. This is among the reasons why the death of the iconic character isn’t enough to provoke a sympathetic reaction and avoids any connection to the end of the story.
The performance of the main character is not convincing and adds to the uninteresting aspect of this heist film. The audience will notice Isola’s character as a slender figure in the moral compass, but Isola manages to find an endpoint.

The story had the ingredients to shine and make an impact through a flawless setup. However, the weakly crafted screenplay prevents the film from gaining momentum by keeping the aspect of interest from the viewers’ reach. If you’re an avid fan of the past and heists, there is a way to watch the film on Netflix.
