Keith Ripley (Morgan Feeman) a cool calculating master thief who lives by the Thieves’ Code: do the job, watch your partner’s back, don’t hold out, and never co-operate with the cops. Unfortunately, his former partner didn’t live by that code. He sang to the cops and now he’s dead, killed by the Russian mob. Can Keith pull off the heist of his lifetime to steal the last two original Faberg Eggs ever created in order to save his own life?
A good movie but there again I really like Morgan freeman who for me is always in good movies. Well supported by Antonio Banderas the plot is simple but entertaining and does not need bad language to emphasise the points. You can just guess the ending but it is exciting waiting for it.
Well, this is a movie that has you anticipating. Literally, even after it ends you still have the feeling that some moments have been left behind. Scenery is somewhat patched - shots from Bulgaria's Supreme Court building, airport and streets, mixed with NYC. Actors' play is at top notch, but there may be some elusive disappointment that the plot didn't develop characters fully, didn't end the way we want to end and so on. Primarily, a story about thieves thieving, some complicated lying, some sex, some features, some plot of grand thefts, and that's it. I actually didn't like this movie. Not because it is bad, but only because it wasted the actors' potential for playing the full extent of their roles.
