Our Score
Bruce Willis helped write the story and the title song of this so-called action comedy, in which he stars as a retired cat burglar who is persuaded to return to his criminal activities. There are some nifty action scenes, especially during the heist of a Leonardo da Vinci artefact, but Willis's charisma is unable to compensate for the poor material. He is good back-up, as he proved in Pulp Fiction, but that's not enough here. As villains, Richard E Grant and Sandra Bernhard are blush-makingly awful - which sadly sums up most of the movie.


A cat burglar fresh out of prison is blackmailed by a couple of crazed billionaires into stealing the hidden components of a device created by Leonardo da Vinci that will allow them to turn lead into gold. He also has to contend with the CIA following his every move. Comedy adventure, starring Bruce Willis, Danny Aiello, Andie MacDowell, Richard E Grant, Sandra Bernhard and James Coburn.
