Synopsis


The Art of the Steal
An art thief-turned-motorcycle daredevil pulls his old crew back together for one last heist in this caper film from writer/director Jonathan Sobol (A Beginner's Guide to Endings). Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell) has a reputation for big stunts, and hard landings. Now that years of motorbike mishaps have taken their toll on the aging Crunch, he is tempted back into a life of crime in order to make a buck. Unfortunately, Crunch isn't the best when it comes to choosing his criminal cohorts, and he winds up in prison after being double-crossed by his scheming half-brother Nicky (Matt Dillon). His retirement fund depleted by the time he's released, Crunch sets his sights on one last score that will set him up for life. The mission: Assemble a team, steal the Guttenberg Bible, replace it with a counterfeit, and collect a cool $20 million. With his apprentice Francie (Jay Baruchel), the well-connected Paddy Kenneth Walsh, expert forger Guy (Chris Diamantopoulos), and idea man Nicky by his side, Crunch begins preparations for the job he'll be remembered for. The heist hits the skids, however, when untrustworthy Nicky resorts to his old tricks. But this time Crunch is ready, and as their partnership dissolves he prepares to pull out his ace in the hole. Terence Stamp and Katheryn Winnick co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Very clever movie if you like Italian Job and movies like that. It is about a group of thieves who eventually double cross a con artist (in a good way). the group has chemistry and the script is very clever and well thought out. Very plausible scenario. Kurt Russell is excellent and Chris Diamantopoulos was perfect(as the forger). Terence Stamp and the interpol policeman interaction was priceless. Gives a good idea into the world of art thieves. A gem which I would highly recommend.

    I stumbled upon this movie on Netflix I believe. I knew it had a couple actors that I heard of before. If you LOVE crime films AND over the top sarcastic, witty and occasionally down right raunchy and goofy comedy this is your new fav. It easily took me by surprise and became one of my favs after the first time i watched it.

    I was unsure about ordering this movie but very glad I did. This is an excellent movie about how they tried to preserve the memories of the people and thier lives through art they created. Anyone who lived through the Hilter days( I did not but my mother did) would understand how great this movie is. It has a wonderful cast of actors. I would recommend this to everyone..

    Cute story with plot intrigues to keep you guessing. Enjoyable despite the few naughty bits. Blu-Ray was released after the DVD, so I had to wait for it.
