A fine remake for older teens and adults.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie's R rating comes from some swear words, nudity (Russo appears topless and Brosnan appears bottomless), and a steamy but not very explicit sex scene.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about what makes people afraid to trust others, and the consequences of that fear, and what people do to make themselves feel alive and involved.

This striking, style remake succeeds on its own merits, very average. Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo are perfectly suited to these characters; dueling titans who must appear icily superficial and above common worldly concerns. The heist seems in both are superbly conceived and well filmed, with just the right amount of tension about the problems arising. Good stuff.

HATED this movie! Didn't even finish watching it. I got so sick of Brosnan and Russo making eyes at each other I turned it off. Have no plans to give it another chance.
