Age rating

In the USA, the film received an R rating from the MPAA , which corresponds to a rating of 17 and over. In Germany, the film was approved by the FSK from the age of 12.


Anke Westphal from epd Film explains that even if a last job is advertised by the distributor as a black-humored detective comedy, it is actually a rather leisurely, dramatized, classic heist movie with a more realistic paint job , in which the gags seem quite artificial and even out of place, including the jokes about the old people's lack of digital affinity. “Even the fantastic cast [...] cannot make the film stand out from its lack of decision-making in tone and staging. Michael Caines is most likely to be of interest to Brian: After the sudden death of his wife, he lacks the meaning of life that he hopes to find again in the robbery, ”said Westphal.


The German dubbing was based on a dialogue book and the dialogue direction by Harald Wolff on behalf of TaunusFilm Synchron GmbH, Berlin.
