Heavyweight acting talents Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando prove an electric combination in this smart thriller
Heavyweight acting talents Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando prove an electric combination in this smart thriller.
Brando (in sadly his last film) persuades cat burglar De Niro to steal a precious antique sceptre from the Montreal customs house, with security guard Edward Norton as their inside man.
The tense and involving plot is as packed as Brando’s suit and Angela Bassett has an important role as De Niro’s girlfriend.
The devious double twist ending is a jewel in the crown of an exciting movie and it is great to see Brando and De Niro together on screen. The wily Norton just about steals the film from both of them, though.
