A bit of overacting in this otherwise interesting story.
26 September 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The idea of the plot in "Run Like a Thief" is good. And, the show has James Dean in a supporting role--and he's just fine. But there is some serious overacting going on and the decent story idea is a bit wasted. Not terrible but it sure could have been so much better.

Alexander is a trusted waiter who has worked at a fancy hotel for years. An old protégé of his, Robbie (Dean), comes by the place and Alexander insists on hiring him. A short time later, a rich lady loses a super-valuable bracelet and Alexander finds it...and impulsively keeps it. He wants to give it to his beloved Dell...but when he tries to give it to her, he tells her it was lost and they must give it back. Greed takes hold of her and she insists they keep it. Later, the hotel investigates with a private detective-- they insist that the item MUST have been stolen and they are determined to find it. In the process, they soon suspect Robbie. After all, he's new and the only one who knew him at all was Alexander. What's next? Well, a WHOLE LOTTA overacting by Alexander and Dell!

The only reason to watch this one is to see Dean. He's not bad but his part isn't huge...and you won't suspect any genius here but he is competent.
