Ivan Warding (Theo James) is working off his father's debt to the Greek Dimitri (Fred Melamed) by stealing art works from wealthy art patrons. He teams up with Elyse (Emily Ratajkowski) to help him get out from under the Greek, but an FBI Agent (Isiah Whitlock Jr) appears to be locking in on Ivan. Oh, oh.
Most of the movie is watching Ivan steal and get away with it. This is not a comedy but we do hear some good lines all around. We do watch a good conversation/interview between the FBI Agent (character name not given in the credits) and Ivan in a diner. The FBI Agent knows what Ivan is doing and wants Ivan's boss.
We see good chemistry between Theo James and Emily Ratajkowski and she is pretty and can act too.
However, there are 3-scenes that didn't make any sense to me: (1) The FBI Agent urinates in his partner's desk drawer. Why? (2) Dimitri apparently sends someone to Ivan's apartment to find the Hitler painting which he didn't find, and makes off with a safe. Do we see what was in the safe? No. Why? (3) We see Ivan doing something with a glass of water, we think it was water. What was all that about? Never explained.
Apparently many scenes were cut, but the story needed something more than just watching Ivan steal things and hear some good banter.
Notable: Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Ray, Ivan's bipolar brother.
Even with the questions above, this was still entertaining and was okay to say the least. (5/10)
Nudity; Yes, brief.
Humor: Some good lines are heard.
