Storyline

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 wikipedia

Bizarre, waste of time and space....
8 September 2014 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This is for the very first time aim giving negative review. But after watching this piece of crap my gut told me to enlighten others about this bizarre movie.

It's a human nature that whenever we start watching a movie we see that if the first 15 minutes or half hour enchant us or not if not we left that movie in between but unlike others i never do that once i start a movie i left screen only when it's finished even if it bores me to death, and something like that happen to me when i watch "The Thieves" It was totally a premeditated movie, no surprise element in it. Jung-Jae Lee is a very talented actor i've seen many other movies of him but have to say this one is worst. If you've seen lots of robbery movies like ocean series, the Italian job then this is nothing special for you.

Some good points of this movie is action and locations otherwise this was one waste of a time, usually i kept movie in my drive so that i could show it to others but unfortunately this one doesn't deserve space in my drive....
