Here's The Lowedown on "The Adventurers" (NR - 2017 - China)...It's good to be free.

Genre: Action/Heist My Score: 6.7

Cast=8 Acting=8 Plot=7 Ending=8 Story=5 Violent=5 Pace=4 F/X=7 Heist=8 Chem=7

The world's top thieves join forces to pull off the heist of a lifetime. But when they find themselves pursued across Europe by a legendary French detective, they'll have to take their game to the next level.

"Just because you're out of prison doesn't mean you're really free." This was a pretty solid heist movie with a good cast. I had some pace issues in the middle and it had a strange half Mandarin / half English dialogue. I think they could have shaved about 10 minutes out of the middle and the pace would be better. It was still a fun movie, just not quite as much as I hoped.
