Thick As Thieves

Synopsis: In New York, the experienced art thief, Keith Ripley, invites the bold thief from Miami, Gabriel Martin, to team up with him. He plans the heist of two valuable mysterious antique Faberge eggs, located in a safe, of the well protected Russian jewelry Romanov. Each egg is worth twenty million dollars on the black market, and Ripley needs his cut to free himself from his debt to a powerful mobster, known as Nicky. The reluctant Gabriel agrees to participate, after having a one night stand with Ripley's goddaughter Alexandra Karolin. Meanwhile, the persistent Lieutenant Weber, who has unsuccessfully tried to put Ripley in jail for twenty years, figures out how to anticipate the movements of the criminal in order to catch him.

No, no, no, no!

You're totally out of your mind.

Good night.

- Hey.

- What?

Here's your karma.

- What was in the other envelope?

- Your cut.

Now you've got mine.


- Think about it.

- Yeah, sure, yeah.


Now... what do you want?

A partner.

What'd you think

I was doing on that train?

- I was watching you work.

- Hm.

I've been your shadow

ever since you got to town.

So why were you in my town

robbing subways?

It's hurricane season in Miami.

I don't like hurricanes.

Or you didn't feel like

going back to Angola.

It's over.

Lesson learned.


Gabriel Martin is a rock star.

So why were you holding

open-mike night on the subway...

for a lousy 100 grand?

Two reasons...

Yes, Miami was getting too hot.

And perhaps you can relate to this.


Sometimes you just need

to feel the rush.

The juice.


You know what I mean.


you took down two jewelers...

for a few stones from Romanov's.

My idea is Romanov's itself.


Specifically, two Faberg eggs

worth 20 million dollars...


It's a two-man job.

Do I have your attention?

Wait here.

I hear they prefer cash...

or your first-born.

Why don't you try

The Standard instead?


Of who?

The mystery bandit.

I'm afraid that type of thing

is not my style.

Well, I think this guy's

got panache... guts.

And a passing resemblance,

at least in body type.

Well, you don't have

to rob trains to have panache.

Or guts... but you've gotta admit that

kind of thing immediately brands you.

My treat... too painful watching

you attempt to read Cyrillic.

Oh, no, no, no... I was just... huh,

looking at the picture.

So you are jealous.

Yes... you got me there.


I've gotta get this...

Chinese food to my boss...

so, um...
