There's a lot to like in this quickly-paced crime/heist caper. But there are smaller problems that keep Robbing Mussolini from being fantastic. Put simply, there's nothing surprising about this story, nothing surprising about the action, the plot, how relationships turn out, and so on. Everything is done well enough, the acting, the writing, the scene compositions, and so forth, but it feels sometimes like this movie is "on rails" (to borrow a critical phrase from the gaming world), which means that every scene, the plot generally, and how the story plays out, all feels like it was always going to be that way, no matter what the characters (or yourself, if playing a game) do or decide to do.

Ultimately, this does impact the suspension of disbelief, along with action sequences that are more slick than realistic, bad decisions that don't simply end with a hero's demise, and other action genre commonalities that can be sometimes forgiven because of the genre. But throw in a supporting cast of characters that aren't deep or developed, and soon the film begins to feel a bit cartoonish.
