Storyline

Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, agrees to get back into the con game and pull off one final lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother, Nicky (Matt Dillon). Reassembling the old team, Crunch comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book, but the successful heist leads to another far riskier plan devised by Nicky. They fail to realize each other's separate agendas when their plan goes awry in this con movie about honor, revenge and the bonds of brotherhood. Written by Production

Trivia

The establishing shot of the airport terminal, in the scene where Guy arrives, is not from a Canadian Airport. It is actually Terminal 2 of the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in The Netherlands. See more »

Goofs

When uncle Paddy is talking with the Reverend about "the Gospel according to James" robbery in Amsterdam, you see a guy running through the Streets in a city. He stumbles into a car with Italian license plate and several romanian cars. Also in background you see a billboard with the text "Unitatea ecologica". The police officer who's chasing the guy wears a uniform which is clearly not dutch. Lastly the street signs are not the kind which you will find in Amsterdam. All those things suggest that this was not filmed in Amsterdam but in Bucharest (Romania). In several shots the Romanian flag is clearly visible and at min 5.06 the metro station is Piata Universitate (the exit is Pasajul Intercontinental). See more »

Did this even go to the movie theaters?
20 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was WAAAAYYYY better than what I thought it was going to be. There are very few movies I don't like of Kurt Russell's but the rest of the cast was pretty awesome too. The comedy part that stood out to me was the banter of Terence Stamp. Funny stuff there!

If you like Jay Baruchel's acting, you'll get some great scenes with him too. Especially when he had the beard on at the border crossing. Wasn't any nudity that I could think of which is always a bummer but good for the kids. While not action packed like Italian Job or movies of the sort, it was still a great watch. Definitely stay for the end credits as there are some out takes.
