Two master thieves (Brosnan and Hayek) are finally retiring after one last succesful mission. Residing in their own tropical paradise, their old nemesis, FBI Agent Stan P. Lloyd shows up to make sure they really are retired. Docked in the port is a ocean liner called the “Diamond Cruise” and Stan is convinced that they’re not really retired at all, and that this is the next set up. While Lola(Hayek) is busy settling into their new life and trying to find ways to keep busy, Max(Brosnan) is contemplating whether or not to steal the diamond. Now the question is, will he? Will Stan finally catch him after eight years of chasing him? Will Lola help Max steal it? And what of that shady character that has told Max he must steal the diamond for him?
Went to watch the movie because of the above story line I read and also because of Brosnan. Well, didn’t expect too much out of it and I didn’t get too much either.
The acting wasn’t spectacular. Was hoping that Brosnan would excel, but unfortunately he lacked the James Bond touch in this movie. Salma Hayek sizzles and I am not talking about her acting 😉
Woody Harrelson, however, does make up where the other two missed out.
The movie has a good amount of humor, which makes up for the lacking story line. What was interesting however was the twist in the tale towards the end.
If you are planning to watch this, it won’t be twice!
