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.
A tough Hong Kong cop's 16 y.o. daughter disappears in Pattaya. He goes to Thailand to find her and must deal with corrupt cops but an honest one helps him track down culprits involved in illegal organ trafficking.
Infamous thief Cheung Tan has recently been released from prison. Soon after his release, Cheung immediately plots a heist with his partners Xiao Bao and Ye Hong in order to steal precious jewels in Europe. Meanwhile, French detective Pierre has been hot on Cheung's trails for many years. This time, he decides to capture Cheung and his gang of thieves for good.
Gotta be honest here, I turned it off about halfway through so I'll give it a five rating. Just in case it somehow switched the entire cast, the plot, the special effects guy, the script, the editor, the endless production companies and their credits and anything else connected with this movie. Miracles can happen.
I'll say one thing.. the movie is almost a throwback to 1950's big American studio productions set in Europe. You know the ones, they always featured swaggering laughing self-confident Americans doing wondrous things amidst the baffled and sluggish Europeans. As a sign of those times and American confidence, every one of those movies is unwatchable now.
I suspect in a few years as China pretty much takes over the world this movie will be seen as insightful into their viewpoint.
