About the Movie
Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, agrees to get back into the con game and pull off one last big art heist with his conniving brother, Nicky (Matt Dillon). Reassembling the old team, Crunch comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book, but the heist leads to another far riskier plan devised by Nicky. They fail to realize each other’s separate agendas when their plan goes awry in this con movie about honor, revenge and the bonds of brotherhood. Also starring Jay Baruchel, Katheryn Winnick, Chris Diamantopoulos, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones and Terence Stamp.

DVD and Blu-Ray™ special features include Feature Commentary with writer/director Jonathan Sobol and producer Nicholas Tabarrok, Doing the Crime: Making The Art of the Steal and The Making of “The Theft of the Mona Lisa.”

RT: 90 minutes
Rated: R for language throughout and some sexual references

My Take on the Movie
This had a huge cast in it, and even though I had never heard about this in the past I was excited to be able to see it and see these actors in action. I have to say that I was impressed with the overall premise of the movie. The actors in the movie did a great job to coalesce into their characters and help to make the story enjoyable and the plot line move quickly. The movie was fast paced and fun. The movie is definitely for adults but completely enjoyable. I was surprised at how good this movie was and you will be too!
