Storyline

Following the theft of a highly-secured piece of artwork, an agent convinces her insurance agency employers to allow her to wriggle into the company of an aging but active master thief. Connery's burglar takes her on suspiciously and demands rigorous training before their first job together, stealing a highly-valued mask from a chichi party. Their deepening attraction and distrust could tear apart their partnership, but the promise of a bigger prize (some eight billion odd dollars) by Zeta-Jones keeps the game interesting. Only, who's playing with whom? Written by Lordship <lordship@juno.com>

Goofs

The Petronas Towers in Malaysia are not located immediately beside slums. The scenes involving the hideout in Malaysia were filmed in actual slums, and the towers were added into the film later. The Malaysian government complained about this as they felt it misrepresented their rich/poor divide. See more »

Alternate Versions

The British Board of Film Classification state that "substitutions" were made before a 12 certificate could be awarded. The edits were to change the line "Sit the fuck down" to "Sit your butt down". The DVD subtitles contain the original line, and the Australian DVD uses the same cut master. The cuts were waived for the 2007 DVD release. See more »

You won't remember much about the movie other than Catherine Zeta-Jones in the laser scene
1 January 2005 | by SnobbyDudeSee all my reviews

I remember how, after seeing this movie, everyone in my office was talking about Catherine Zeta-Jones and how she was, arguably, the most beautiful woman in the world. The women in the office went to go see it after hearing all the fuss, many going just to confirm that "she isn't all that." In a way, it's a bit of a shame because it's a decent heist movie with a good plot and pretty good acting. Sean Connery was, as always, excellent in his role and the cinematography. It all gets overshadowed by the Catherine Zeta-Jones laser scene that guys will be thinking about for days (Years?).

Does any of this make the movie any less entertaining to watch? Probably not.
