Product Description

In order to let things cool down from their latest heist, Popeye and his group of thieves go to Macau on a job. But the mastermind behind this job is none other than Popeye's old partner Macau Park, who escaped with 68kg of gold several years ago on their last job together. Macau Park brought Chinese thieves as well but little did they know what Macau Park planned for each one of them. His plan takes an unexpected turn when Popeye brings Pepsi, a genius safe-cracker and old flame of Macau Park, to settle the old score. The thieves' target is a $20 million diamond known as 'Tear of the Sun', kept safely away in a casino, brought there to be sold by a notorious Chinese fence. While working together to steal this fabled diamond, they all have their own agenda to keep the diamond for themselves. But who will succeed and live to see another day?

Caper flicks have been done before. For the record, the French have had a few solid outings. I've yet to see anything significant from the Russians. The Brits can pull them off with surprising aplomb, as can many other production houses throughout the United Kingdom. I would have to say, though, that the United States has put out the lion's share of the truly memorable ones. I couldn't say why that is exactly; maybe it's that I haven't seen enough foreign imports, or maybe it's just that U.S. production companies have a singular knack for taping into that exceptional mix of action and comedic charm needed to pull it off so winningly.

If THE THIEVES is any indication, then South Korea may be set to give the Americans a good run for their money.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

Popeye (played by Jung-Jae Lee) and his crew of thieving misfits (among them Hae-suk Kim as Chewingum; and the lovely Gianna Jun as Yenicall) are "hot" ... and not in a good way. Their last job drew the attention of the local police. Now needing to lie low, they agree to take a job with an old friend of Popeye's - the mysterious Macao Park (Yun-seok Kim) - to steal the `Tear of the Sun' diamond, a gem valued at a cool $20 million. The hitch? The diamond is kept in a private safe inside the busiest casino in Macau.

[Spoilerless Review] Many viewers will portray the film as a Korean version of 'Ocean's 11'. It is an easy comparison, and at least for the first half of the movie not too far from the truth. However, with three major female characters as part of the heist crew, 'Thieves' is more than just a vehicle for metro-sexual pretty boys trying to recapture brat-pak cool. There is nothing tough or gritty for most of the movie, but for these thieves stealing money always trumps style. The dialog contains many good one liners, but it's not the emphasis of the movie.

But as with many Korean movies (such as 'The Good, the Bad, and the Weird'), there is still an inherent quirkiness to the characters and their delivery. This not a black comedy, but the movie will crack a lot of smiles. Good acting with good chemistry, the "dialog" is good but the movie is not dubbed in English.

Strengths of the movie include some ethnic tension/interplay as Korean, Chinese, and multi-racial characters have to work together in multi-cultural Hong Kong to rob jewels being held within a casino. Aside from the ethnic allegiances, most characters also have a personal history between them that sometimes crosses those cultural lines, making for complex relationships that shift. In fact, you'll likely find yourself rooting for different characters in the first half of the movie than you will in the second. As crew members are captured or killed, who survives to live to see any 'happy ending' changes quickly.

At over two hours the film is to a certain degree almost two movies in one, the first being more of the quirky heist type and the second being more straight up action.

The second highest grossing Korean film in Korean box office history, "Dodookdeul" (The Thieves) will be released on Blu-ray and DVD in Feb. 2013 courtesy of Well Go USA Entertainment

Directed by Dong-Hoon Choi ("Whoochi", "Tazza: The High Rollers" and "The Big Swindle") and co written by Choi and Lee Gi-Cheol, the film is known for its all-star cast from Korea and other Asian countries.

The film stars Jeon Ji-hyun/Gianna Jun ("My Sassy Girl", "Il: Mare", "Blood: The Last Vampire", "Windstruck"), Hae-suk Kim ("Wonderful Radio, "Sunflower", "Open City"), Hye-su Kim ("3 Extremes II", "The Red Shoes", "Tazza: The High Rollers"), Soo Hyun Kim, Yun-seok Kim ("The Yellow Sea", "The Chaser", "Woochi"), Angelica Lee ("The Eye", "Re-Cycle", "The Drummer", "20 30 40″), Jung-Jae Lee ("Il Mare", "The Housemaid", "Typhoon", "Sunaebo"), Dal-su Oh ("Oldboy", "The Host", "Thirst", "The Good, the Bad , the Weird"), Kwok Cheung Tsang ("Once a Gangster", "Dream Home") and Simon Yam ("Ip Man", "Ip Man 2″, "Election", "PTU").

The film has been nominated and has won many awards including "Best Cinematography - Choi Young-hwan" (2012 Korean Association of Film Critics Awards, 2012 Buil Film Awards), "Best Supporting Actress" (2012 Grand Bell Awards) and many more.


"The Thieves" is presented in 1080p High Definition (2:35:1 aspect ratio). The cinematography by Yeong-hwan Choi is absolutely beautiful and what really works for this film is the multiple locations and countries of where this film was shot. Locations were carefully planned and what you get is a very stylish film. While the outdoor scenes showcase great detail, there is a hint of softness in the indoor scenes but nothing major.
