The Thieves

Synopsis: In order to let things cool down from their latest heist, Popeye and his group of thieves go to Macau on a job. But the mastermind behind this job is none other than Popeye's old partner Macau Park, who escaped with 68kg of gold several years ago on their last job together. Macau Park brought Chinese thieves as well but little did they know what Macau Park planned for each one of them. His plan takes an unexpected turn when Popeye brings Pepsi, a genius safe-cracker and old flame of Macau Park, to settle the old score. The thieves' target is a $20 million diamond known as 'Tear of the Sun', kept safely away in a casino, brought there to be sold by a notorious Chinese fence. While working together to steal this fabled diamond, they all have their own agenda to keep the diamond for themselves. But who will succeed and live to see another day?

So glad to finally meet you!

Sorry, I was held up

with magazine interviews.

No, I know how busy you are.

My apologies for looking this way,

I came from a hike.

Please, don't be so formal.

- Bring us some tea.

- Forget that.

Is that Royal Salute?

May I?

I need some hard liquor in me today.

So I understand

you deflowered my daughter?

Mom, don't be so crude.

Once driven,

even a Mercedes is a used car.

Let me get a good look at you.

No, your full figure.

At least you're not deformed.

Are you very wealthy?

So do you own this building?

Not until my father's passing.

- What about the art?

- It's on a consignment-basis.

I don't want to brag...

but my collection is

too valuable for public display...

- May I take a look?

- Look at...?

Your collection.

Of course!

You stay here,

let me borrow him a bit.


Gum? Ah, right!

Sorry honey,

she's a bit weird, huh?

She's very avant-garde.

Mother, this way please.

Sure, lead the way.

- We'll be back!

- See you soon!

Show time!


Good shot, Zampano.

That was my shot.

When will be Zampano's turn?

Pull me up.

Look at that dimwit.

It's like an expensive fridge.

The system recovers

within 3 minutes of any problem.

And please don't be so formal.

- Weren't you a painter before'?

- Did my daughter tell you'?

Yes, that you were all about

the romantic life.

Shall we?

Oh, I shouldn't look.

- I'm set, lower me.

- Here goes.

Too fast! Too fast!

My pelvis...


everything in the museum is fake.

Please come in.

Do you think I'm shallow

for asking about your wealth?

I thought you were frank.

I am shallow.

But can I tell you something?

My daughter hit the jackpot.

Ow, my head.




- Mother, are you okay?

- I'm fine.

You seem comfortable

with me now.

Maybe a little.

This way.

- That was spectacular.

- My pleasure.

The clock's ticking,

we got 3 minutes.

- Are you in?

- Yeah, I'm in.

Where is that decoder?

That's it!

- Okay. Zampano, get me out.

- Okay.

See you soon.

Hey, hey, I need more time!

Chewing gum, stall him!

Mother, are you okay?



What's wrong?

You okay? Are you hurt?

Help me up.

Life is tough at times.

Hold onto him,

he's quite a catch.

One moment.

Where's the alarm coming from?

It's from your private storage.

But I was just there.



I'm sorry,

but I'll need to open your bag.

Something wrong?

Honey, are you accusing my mom?

Mr. Lee, if you open this bag,

you'll never see my daughter again.

What should I do?

Open it.

It's not here.

Tell them

it was just a security protocol.

Honey, but there's

no protocol for love.

May we leave?

She's the real deal.

This beauty belongs

in the national museum.

Why the cash is is so little?

I can't put this on the market now.

It's already on the watch list.

I'll give you the rest in 2 years.

So... make up your mind.

No choice. Split it.

I'll cover the rest from my share.

Forget it.

I'll collect in 2 years.

Can I get all my share now?

- Is money all you think about?

- He said he'll cover.

I worked on that dumb-ass

for 5 months.

Only cash will make up

for my bygone youth.

Did you sleep with the curator?

No, why... is that your business?

That's quite a feat.

Did you hold hands for 5 months?

Chewing gum!

Am I a sex object?

Watch who you're talking to!

Where's your respect!

That temperament of yours

comes from not getting laid.

Isn't that ancient history?

How about him?

Don't fight.

The next job is a blockbuster.

Didn't Popie mention

the Macao Park job'?

Who's Macao Park?
