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

To be honest I expected a lot more from this film
23 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

To be honest I expected a lot more from this film, with Morgan Freeman, a veteran movie maker. However I was a little shocked at the lack of action in this movie.

Yes it was full of faces you may recognise from other movies but to be honest that's about where it leaves you. There were no amazing car chases, not enough action etc.

About the only half decent thing in this movie was the seriously slow unwinding plot twist.

Not a great movie overall, not one I would consider watching again. I guess Morgan is getting on a bit, maybe that attributed to the lack of "things"?
