After being recruited by a group of unconventional thieves, renowned criminal Richard Pace finds himself caught up in an elaborate gold heist that promises to have far-reaching implications on his life and the lives of countless others.
Pierce Brosnan doesn't really seem to fit in at all here, but it was a charming movie no matter. Not all bad. Feels like he did his part, just wasn't really the best one for it; maybe didn't have the supporting cast he would've needed.
It's a trip. A tale of goodwill and conning. All rich and luxurious, just with a little simple a script; a little simple enacting and everything.
It had an Oceans 11 kind of Heist vibe that I really liked, just didn't hit the mark there perfectly; didn't execute the planning/execution stages as flawlessly. Nor the character characters.
I liked Rami Jaber and Jamie Chung in particular. The rest were alright. Nick Cannon's comedic acting goes a little overboard - that's maybe the bit that annoys me the most.
If you want a refreshingly light action movie with class and an enjoyable envoy of characters you might like this one! It's not perfect, but not bad, and the sceneries are something else.
If you don't happen to already live in Dubai.
rated 3/5: not bad
