Storyline

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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I pity Morgan Freeman
3 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

The combination of bad acting, lousy directing, faded characters, clichéd script and mediocre sets not only disappointed me, but actually made me mad enough to post this comment. I feel really sorry for Morgan Freeman and Marcel Iures for having had to put up with all the preposterous nonsense called "Thick as thieves". As for Banderas and Mitchell, they seem to be pretty much in the same boat, as both lack basic acting skills and have aged disgracefully. To sum up, the movie is ridiculously bad but, if you appreciate Freeman's previous work, buy a ticket, tear it to bits, go home and watch the evening news: I'm sure it'll be less depressing.
