Editorial Reviews

Tom Selleck stars as Nick Lassiter - a suave, debonair, man-about-town and thief. Whether he's charming high society at dinner or emptying their safes in the dead of night, Lassiter excels at what he does. On the eve of WWII Lassiter finds himself in London, where local authorities are well aware of his history as a notorious cat burglar. When word leaks out that a cache of uncut diamonds is to be smuggled through the German embassy, Lassiter is coerced by police and the FBI to perform one last heist on their behalf.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked gem of a movie December 19, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This little known movie stars Tom Selleck as an American jewel cat thief in pre-World War II London. It's a great movie and has an incredible supporting cast including Bob Hoskins as a police officer doggedly on the title characters trail. Adding beauty to the movie is former Bond girl Jane Seymour as Selleck's girlfriend and the impossibly sexy Lauren Hutton as a Nazi.
With OTT Nazi's as the villains this movie truly is a great ride and a DVD release is long overdue.
There is a DVD available in Europe (Region 2) for those of us with region-free players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vastly underated November 26, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
This is a much overlooked crime thriller, with a delightful combination of charm and suspense. Selleck plays a succesful cat burglar in London just before the outbreak of WW11, coerced into helping a brutally determined British cop, brilliantly played by Bob Hoskins, into stealing a fortune of diamonds from the Nazis. The Nazis are suitably menacing, Hoskins roguishly deceitful, and the finale has a clever and unsuspected twist. All in all, one of the better crime thriller's I have seen.

Tom Selleck, Jane Seymour, and Bob Hoskins have great chemistry in this movie and the twists and turns keep you glued to the screen to see what will happen next. I hope the "powers that be" put this on DVD soon!!! Do you hear me??

5.0 out of 5 stars LASSITER is as rare as Hen's teeth! April 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At last, here is an excellent DVD transfer of a very underrated but excellent movie. I previously imported the Spanish DVD release, and the quality was poor. It looked like a VHS enhanced transfer.
HEN"S TOOTH video has released a very "handsome" DVD, with very professional packaging. The picture quality is extremely close to the theatrical prints I used to project as a part-time projectionist in college. The aspect ratio is nicely framed as an anamorphic 1.85:1. The soundtrack is very good, not excellent, and probably from a MONO source, but processed as 2-track stereo. There are no extras, other than English subtitles.
I hope the Blu-ray of this little gem of a movie is coming soon, because, I would buy it in that format again. I recommend this disc as the best available for this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed June 17, 2009
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I have seen this movie sometime back and always enjoyed watching it and it is not a movie that anyone under 13 should watch. All the characters are good in their prspective roles. and of course Tom S. rates high on my list of good actors. There is some comedy in it , but not much, but it still is an enjoyable movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST SELLECK MOVIES July 27, 2009
Format:DVD
I thoroughly enjoyed Tom Selleck as the charming and romantic cat burglar. Not only was the story interesting, but it had some kinky twists that added flavor. Also, the casting was excellent, all the characters were well selected. The setting in London gave the movie a very nice ambiance and the ending was a nice surprise. The total package was delightful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining But Somewhat Uneven July 28, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
LASSITER is a movie about a jewel thief in London during the years just before World War II. After an arrest he is pressured by British law enforcement and the FBI into attempting to steal a horde of gems from the German Embassy.
The film is a fairly entertaining romp but there are problems with the script and some of the actors seem to be miscast. The movie does have many excellent sets and Tom Selleck gives a strong performance as Lassiter. The supporting cast includes Jane Seymour, Laura Hutton and Bob Hoskins. Hoskins is particularly good in the role of Inspector John Becker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Tom Selleck at his Absolute Best June 12, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an early Tom Selleck film, done about the time he was doing Magnum P.I. It's a period piece set in the days just before the beginning of WW II, and it is well written and the acting by Tom was his absolute best. Tom plays a high-end jewel thief who gets recruited by the british government and the America's FBI to steal some jewels from the German consulate in Britian, which the Germans plan to use towards their upcoming War effort. It has a great cast that includes Jane Seymour, Laren Hutton, and Bob Hoskins just to mention a few. This is the first time that this movie has been offered on DVD (something I have been waiting for, for years)and I hope it is followed up by a blu-ray version like they did with Tom Selleck's "High Road to China" which was also shot in about the same time period as "Lassiter" and another great period piece that Tom did. I highly recommend this film,especially if you are a Tom Selleck fan like I am, I promise you won't be dissappointed with it.
