Our Score
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.


An elusive professional art thief suspected of stealing a priceless painting is pursued by an insurance agent. However, instead of bringing the criminal to book, she teams up with him to plot the robbery of a lifetime - although neither is sure the other can be trusted. Crime thriller, starring Sean Connery, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Ving Rhames, Will Patton and Maury Chaykin.
