Honest Thief [Movie Review]

Honest Thief [Movie Review] | The movie's tagline was the thing that attracted my interest to watch the movie 'Never Steal A Man's Second Chance'.

This is another movie that I watched online as it still yet to be available on Netflix.

A year later, he decides to turn over a new leaf and wants to be clean about his past with Annie. So, he calls up FBI and attempts to turn himself over. FBI Agent Sam brushes him off as another wannabe and sends his subordinates, Agent Nivens and Agent Hall to interview Tom. 

Days later, the two walks in into Tom's room and takes Tom's keys to the storage unit. Agent NIvens quickly wants to take the money to himself and successfully persuades Agent Hall to collaborate in his attempt to discredit Tom about the money. They took the money and hid it inside one of the FBI's safe-houses before returning to see Tom - intending to kill him and frame him afterwards. 

Agent Baker arrives at Tom's hotel room unexpectedly and was shot point-blank by Agent Nivens. A fight ensues and as Tom runs from the hotel, he takes Annie with him when Annies also arrives at the hotel.

Now, as a fugitive, Agent Nivens and Agent Hall have the higher hands in the matter. They told the FBI that Tom was the one who shot Agent Baker when questioned about the money. 

Tom told Annie about his past and told Annie to stay as far as possible from him and hide somewhere for a while. Annie returns to the storage unit to get the security camera evidence that shows the two agents stealing the money from Tom's unit. Agent Nivens arrives and knocks Annie unconscious. Failed to find the evidence, both agents fled the scene seconds before Tom arrives and brings Annie to the nearby hospital. 

And now, it's getting personal to Tom. He devises plans to outwit the agents to pay for their crimes, before he pays his.

Who will win this game of cat and mouse?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.5/ 5.0. What can I say? It's predictable - just like Taken trilogy and his other action movies. Nothing new or worth mentioning here. 

Just an old thief who wants to turn over a new leaf after meeting the love of his life. 

Cast: 4.4/ 5.0 Pretty strong cast here and everyone delivers. 

Will I watch it again: Perhaps yes, especially when I want to watch the Taken trilogy. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
