22 June 2006 | by (Gloucester, England) – See all my reviews

A very oddball film is The Steal. It's definitely a very British crime caper with an original, (if not really interesting) little twist. The story starts with a wise lawyer recruiting an American computer hacker to take money from a international company that has destroyed part of a small Asian country to build a leisure complex. She is teamed up with a man who works for the city council to carry out the heist. I won't spoil it, but I'll just say what follows is not a conventional heist film, more a very British farcical comedy with a firm tongue in cheek. It doesn't really work very well, but for some strange reason I quite enjoyed watching it, maybe for the originality, maybe because Alfred Molina was in it, maybe because the lawyer character was so cool, maybe for nice footage of the British countryside whatever, I don't think I can really recommend this film as such, but if you do watch it don't be prepared for anything ground breaking.
