In New York, the experienced art thief, Keith Ripley, invites the bold thief from Miami, Gabriel Martin, to team up with him. He plans the heist of two valuable mysterious antique Faberge eggs, located in a safe, of the well protected Russian jewelry Romanov. Each egg is worth twenty million dollars on the black market, and Ripley needs his cut to free himself from his debt to a powerful mobster, known as Nicky. The reluctant Gabriel agrees to participate, after having a one night stand with Ripley's goddaughter Alexandra Karolin. Meanwhile, the persistent Lieutenant Weber, who has unsuccessfully tried to put Ripley in jail for twenty years, figures out how to anticipate the movements of the criminal in order to catch him.

Did You Know?


During the scene when Antonio Banderas is talking to Radha Mitchell at the Russian night club at around 26 minutes the mark, there is a techno remix of the traditional Russian folk song, "Korobeiniki". "Korobeiniki" is also the theme song for the Nintendo classic puzzle video game, "Tetris" See more »


When trying to open the vault Martin (Antonio Banderas) looks at his wristwatch twice. The first time the time runs up like in a stopwatch from 16 minutes on. The second time the time runs down like a countdown from 12 minutes down. See more »

Good Actors, Bad Plot, Bad Acting
14 March 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I actually enjoyed watching this thriller. The problem is that you come across some scenes that makes you feel like an idiot. The plot misses that spark of ingenuity. For instance; you guess what is gonna happen in the next 10 minutes; and it happens!!! I think this is not only because of bad writing, but also because the script is full of clichés.

If you have some spare time to kill and don't mind an uninspired plot. Go ahead; it might amuse you. Don't be fooled by the actors and expect anything better.

By the way isn't it interesting that Morgan Freeman kinda accepts any script? He must be really lucky that really good ones find him too.

For Antonio Banderas; there is not much to do. But wait for a Wrestler like a come back or not...
