Verdict

The time-heist element to the story is written well with an expensive budget and a whole vault full of treats and treasures with a few convenient plot conveniences. The whole production is movie-quality with great production values and visually pleasing shots. The Teller is an impressive looking monster and serves as lesson and metaphor for species and races being used for the greater good for people with power and money. The plot is very start and go and the sets are evidently recycled throughout. Some surprising moments are not really surprising and the ending although rushed is one of  the more better ones in the series. ***​
