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

As Thick As They Come
10 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying that, what saved this movie from being a total disaster is not being a very long movie. Hence, the rating of three stars was given instead of one. I invested the first 30 minutes, without much happening. I was hoping on a "thick" plot but boy was I wrong. This movie tries to be another "Bank Job" but fails at surprising or making the viewer think about anything but Antonio's horrid performance.

Average acting on behalf of the crew. Morgan just wanted his money, you could tell that any moment now he was going to run off the stage. The only guy who was remotely good is Papa Patrelli from Heroes the TV series. Playing a frustrated, outsmarted investigator/cop. Now Antonio delivered a performance that made you feel like he reached into your pocket and stole your money. Not once during the entire movie have I forgot that I'm seeing Antonio miserably fail at attempting to take himself seriously.

The movie tried to seem wise or smooth or even funny, but delivered none of the above. The movie passes by without any real point or drive and ending equally pointless.
