In order to let things cool down from their latest heist, Popeye and his group of thieves go to Macau on a job. But the mastermind behind this job is none other than Popeye's old partner Macau Park, who escaped with 68kg of gold several years ago on their last job together. Macau Park brought Chinese thieves as well but little did they know what Macau Park planned for each one of them. His plan takes an unexpected turn when Popeye brings Pepsi, a genius safe-cracker and old flame of Macau Park, to settle the old score. The thieves' target is a $20 million diamond known as 'Tear of the Sun', kept safely away in a casino, brought there to be sold by a notorious Chinese fence. While working together to steal this fabled diamond, they all have their own agenda to keep the diamond for themselves. But who will succeed and live to see another day? Written by
The Thieves is directed by Donghoon Choi. There are four main actors: Yoonseok Kim, Hyesook Kim, Jungjae Lee, Jihyun Jun. They are one of the most famous actors in Korea. The story is about stealing a diamond in a casino. Director Choi said he wanted to make a film that has action and a love story. It contains complicated love story and dynamic action. The film is set in Korea and Hongkong.
On the plus side the movie includes lots of funny scenes similar to a comedy movie. Also, the actor whose name is Dalsu Oh, who specializes in playing funny characters makes us not be bored while we are watching the movie.
On the other hand, the plot has too many reversals that surprises. We don't know the conclusion until the movie is finished. As well, If you were Chinese or Japanese, the movie would be more fun because they speak both of them in different parts of the movie. And despite the humor, there is enough action that will keep you on the edge of your seat.è
All in all, it is fun but this movie is too much like the other heist movies.
