When a priceless Rembrandt is stolen in New York, the evidence points to a solitary master thief (Connery), who is about to meet the insurance company's most cunning - and seductive - investigator (Zeta-Jones). Following a nerve-racking game of cat and mouse, the two join forces, or so it seems, to attempt a daring multibillion-dollar heist tied to the dawn of the new millennium.

Cast & Crew
It's a superficial but entertaining caper that's a good, old-fashioned yarn.
[Directed] with cool efficiency.
The kind of slick, sleek entertainment that shows audiences a good time mostly because of an elaborately tricky plot.
An adventure movie without two brain cells to rub together. But Connery's sad and reflective acting gives the movie depth and poignancy.
Connery and Zeta-Jones not only look great together, they work well together, too.
A movie with a preposterous plot, exotic locations, absurd action sequences, and so much chemistry between attractive actors that we don't care.
