The Thieves

South Korean director Dong-Hoon Choi’s heist thriller has a decidedly American blockbuster feel to it (some of it is actually in English). The film involves a complicated heist with various teams working the job, to an extent that it gets a little confusing. No matter, because Choi keeps things funny, fast, and entertaining. It has the feel of an Asian Ocean’s Eleven crossed with Mission Impossible. It’s one of those movies that’s a little too clever for its own good at times, plus it clocks in at over two hours. Still, thanks to Choi’s ability to keep things breezy, and some fun performances, it’s an overall good time. While the stars in this movie aren’t household names here in the USA, they are huge overseas, resulting in this one being an international box office champ.
