Our Score
A jewel thief is tempted to come out of retirement in this pleasant Caribbean-set caper. Pierce Brosnan plays suave crook Max Burdett, whose idyllic life in a Bahamian paradise - shared with partner-in-crime Lola Cirillo (Salma Hayek) - is jeopardised when he sees the chance to steal a famous diamond. Burdett must also contend with his old nemesis, FBI agent Stanley Lloyd (Woody Harrelson), who doesn't believe Burdett can retire, and so a seemingly endless game of cat-and-mouse ensues. Rush Hour director Brett Ratner offers perhaps more than enough tasteless jokes about suntan-oil application and scenes of Hayek in skimpy swimwear, but, luckily, the cast's playfulness works within the predictable plot rather than against it.

Summary

A veteran jewel thief seems to have it all, enjoying a relaxing retirement in a Caribbean paradise - but the lure of one last heist looks set to be his downfall as an old enemy plots to finally collar the crook. Comedy thriller, starring Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek, Woody Harrelson, Don Cheadle and Naomie Harris.
