A man, having fallen in love with the wrong woman, is sent by the sultan himself on a diplomatic mission to a distant land as an ambassador. Stopping at a Viking village port to restock on supplies, he finds himself unwittingly embroiled in a quest to banish a mysterious threat in a distant Viking land.
An ex-C.I.A. operative is brought back in on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level C.I.A. officials and the Russian President-elect.
Self-made billionaire Thomas Crown is bored of being able to buy everything he desires. Being irresistible to women, he also does not feel any challenge in that area. But there are a few things even he can't get, therefore Thomas Crown has a seldom hobby: He steals priceless masterpieces of Art. After the theft of a famous painting from Claude Monet, the only person suspecting Thomas Crown is Catherine Banning. Her job is to get the picture back, no matter how she accomplishes her mission. Unfortunately, Catherine gets involved too deeply with Thomas to keep a professional distance to the case. Fortunately, Thomas seems to fall for her, too.Written by

The scene of Crown racing a catamaran replaced a similar scene in the original script (and the original movie) that was set at a polo match. John McTiernan deemed a polo match to be too much of a cliché, and wanted a scene that conveyed more action and excitement, and not just wealth. See more »
When the teacher is talking to the children about the Monet, Bobby the proctor is slowly walking across the floor. From the high angle he has his arms across his front both touching. Almost in a cross armed position. But when the camera angle changes he has one hand near his mouth. See more »

The original McQueen movie was terrific and this could never live up to it but they could have done better. Basically, they removed the wit and character from all the players and Russo seemed intent on trying to look a sex symbol instead of the mess she actually looks.
Brossman is expressionless and dull and their perfunctory sex scenes were un-erotic tedium. If I want to watch sex I`ll watch a porno they should stick to the plot.
The whole point of the original story was that they could not trust each other and Fay Dunnaway played this superbly in the orininal. Russo looked jaded and soul-less and just going through the motions.
The ending was dreadful and not at all true to the story line.
