Film Review

Few 68-year-old actors would turn down a chance to enjoy old-fashioned heist high jinks with the undeniably beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones, and here Sean Connery obviously revels in doing just that. The set-up is familiar for anyone who saw the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair - female insurance investigator goes after gentleman thief. And although it suffers in comparison, being a less stylish and intelligent film, this romantic thriller still manages to combine plenty of tension with wry humour, and the robbery scenes are mechanical yet effective.

Plot Summary

Romantic thriller starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones. When a priceless Rembrandt is stolen from a Manhattan office building, ace insurance investigator Virginia "Gin" Baker attributes the heist to master art thief Robert "Mac" MacDougal. Determined to put him away for good, she hatches a plan to apprehend the criminal.
