When a master criminal and super sleuth go head to head once a pricey piece of artwork has been nicked, we try to keep up with unraveling the mystery as the brainiacs on each side of the law set about thinking ten steps ahead of the game in a highly intellectual game of cat and mouse. Admittedly its tough as the viewer to keep up with all the twists and turns yet this is compelling both in terms of the screenplay and the psychological aspect of the relationships. Cleverly written in the sense that the story lures the viewer into believing one thing before taking a completely different direction, and you just have to admire the work of a film that has the ability to successfully implement that.

The Thomas Crown Affair was very average and did nothing to set itself apart. The story sounds intriguing, a rich playboy who is an art thief on the side. After the first initial heist however, there are no more fun suspense moments but it does have a nice twist toward the end. The 2 star power actors are good but they have no chemistry together. I am not sure who was at fault more, but neither Brosnan or Russo seemed to be into each other and the romantic scenes fell completely flat. It was very predictable and it never got exciting or up to the level I expected it to. I think things could of been more intriguing and it ended up being a very middle of the road movie that isn't anything you need to run out/or click on and see.

Pierce Brosnan in a quite solid drama / thriller in a more gentle way. I was expecting a bit more intense scenes but a lighthearted crime movie with a bit of romance turned out really great aswell in the end. The beautiful Rene Russo plays the charming talent detective. This is a remake and i haven't seen the original so i can't compare but most reviewers likes this version. The story is quite simple and follows a very rich and successful man with a hobby to steal precious artworks.. Overall a decent movie with the glimpse in the eye and well worth seeing in my opinion.
