Honest Thief

A former marine demolitions expert (Liam Neeson) who has robbed 12 banks in seven states amounting to US$9 million wants to turn himself in and make a fresh start. His plan is to hand over all the stolen money for a reduced sentence.

But why does this thief suddenly see the error of his ways and desperately needs to revert to an honest citizen? In a nutshell, ‘love’ – he has met a woman and wants to be with her forever without lying about his past.

Throw two crooked cops into the mix and he’s about to realise that the sudden urge to be an honest thief may not have been such a great idea!

After putting action film scripts on the back burner for family-oriented and romance films, Neeson returns to the screen in the role movie-goers favour him in – an action hero.

This adrenaline-enhanced, action-packed thriller boasts death-defying stunts and car chase sequences that will leave movie-goers at the edge of their seats. The storyline is highly implausible, but it’s fun escapism that should get people out of their living rooms and back into darkened cinemas. (MMo)
