a gem of a movie
9 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boy - was this a surprise. It was part of a package of thriller movies, a mix of crap, and pretty good. "Diamond Thieves" was very good - make that two 'veries.' First of all, the plot was complex but it all came together at the end, and it was an intelligent, well-penned story that kept you intrigued from start to finish.

The acting? Top notch. It starred Lee Van Cleef and it gave him a range most of his other flicks did not. He was riveting. When it comes to looking evil, well, just give him a close-up, and that face shows you what evil looks like. He is one of moviedom's best villains.

A surprise was Edward Arnold Jr. - Eddie's son - and his performance was so good you wonder why he did not get closer to stardom. Lionel Stander was excellent as usual, but the scene stealer was Karen Black as a ditsy NYC chick. She was a blast.

The movie was filmed in my hometown - NYC - and the photography was just right, as was the music for the movie.

I know zilch about the history of this movie, but if you can get your paws on it,I promise, you won't regret it.
