Synopsis


The Thomas Crown Affair
When a priceless Monet painting is stolen from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the police find themselves wondering which world-class art thief pulled the job. What they don't know is that the thief wasn't a professional, but an amateur. Thomas Crown (Pierce Brosnan) was born poor but made his way through Oxford on a boxing scholarship. With his sharp sense for business and ruthless ambition, Crown has become a self-made billionaire; but despite his wealth and power, he still seeks new challenges, and he steals art not for the profits but for the sheer excitement. However, as fun as art theft might be, it's still illegal, and investigator Catherine Banning (Rene Russo) is brought in to track down the culprit. Certain clues point to Crown, so Banning introduces herself into Crown's social circle. Police detective Michael McCann (Denis Leary) warns Banning against getting too close to Crown. She takes McCann's suggestion lightly -- until she finds herself falling for the suave thief. The Thomas Crown Affair was adapted from the popular 1968 caper film of the same name starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway; Dunaway appears in the new film as Crown's analyst. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This review is specific to the single disk Blu-ray version of the film. I want to start by saying that I love this film! A classic caper movie that is anything but predictable. This movie appeals to both men & women. I have watched my original DVD well over a dozen times. That being said, this movie was at the top of my list for a Blu-ray upgrade. The quality of the Blu-ray is wonderful! Bolder colors, sharper look, and more background details. This is especially apparent in the outdoor scenes that take place in the glider & on the tropical island. Now, the reason for my 3 star rating. Prior to purchasing, I had checked product reviews on other sites, and noticed a few that stated there were no extras. What didn't sink in for me was the fact that my original copy had a commentary track by director John McTiernan. I know not everyone likes commentary tracks. I tend to enjoy them, especially if they have fun facts not found anywhere else. I understand that it is difficult to add additional features to older movies. What I cannot understand is why a previously released feature would be left off of the Blu-ray upgrade. In order to keep my old DVD, but not have to keep two packages, I had to buy a two disk Blu-ray case to hold both copies. An added expense I wasn't too thrilled with. Overall, the Blu-ray is still worth owning. I just wanted to be clear for those of you who are rebuying the film on Blu-ray.

    This movie has a superb soundtrack. Pierce Brosnan and Renee Russo work perfectly together. A great example of an intriguing production without special effects. There is a scene where both leading actors go flying in a glider and the music (Bill Contti) and scenery are mesmerizing. Worth your time.

    Whew! Pierce Brosnan and Renee Russo have some chemistry! Well, ok, at least the characters do! And how fun to have Faye Dunaway appear as Thomas' analyst in this remake. Definitely a keeper!!!

    This is a fun heist movie although most of the action comes towards the end forcing you to watch and enjoy the storyline (which I do) it's a lot of fun.

    This was a great movie, the transfer to Blu Ray was better then expected, wish there had been some extras, but the price was great, and it included the DVD as well.
