A very good movie

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I’m a huge fan of Michael Mann’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though it is one of his more obscure movies, I was actually impressed by the damned thing and, in my opinion, it is easily one of his best directing efforts. Indeed, I always had a weak spot for heist features and this flick is, by far, ... read more

In an effort to accelerate this process, he signs on to take down a huge score for a big-time gangster. Unfortunately, Frank's obsession for his version of the American Dream allows him to overlook his natural wariness and mistrust, when making the deal for h ... (more)

"1st viewing, PC/TV 1 February 2016 Directed by: Michael Mann Odotin jostain syystä enemmän. Elokuva oli ylipitkä ja ennalta arvattava, täynnä rikoselokuvan kliseitä. Kuvaus oli miellyttävää. "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2015 (34 movies items)

" Netflix- 2hrs. 3min. First Viewing Thief is quite slow and incredibly cold, but it's never less than intriguing, and thrilling in several spots. Mann's direction and style do a solid portion of the heavy lifting, but the movie just doesn't work without Caan; he's commanding in every scene, and does a hell of a lot with little dialogue (though he kills the diner monologue that he's given). Still though, it's a movie I respect more than I truly like."
