Robert DeNiro plays Nick, a full-time crook who decides to retire and marry his long-distance girlfriend and run his Montreal Jazz Club. Then Max (Marlon Brando) his old friend and boss says that Nick can retire IF he does one last job with a partner, a man named Jack (Edward Norton). Jack is a newcomer to "the business" and is the exact opposite of Nick, aggressive and willing to take risks.
Max hires them to steal a priceless French scepter that was supposed to be smuggled into the country. It was discovered and is now being held under massive surveillance in the Montreal Customs House, but Jack has been working for weeks at the Customs House under the name "Brian", pretending to be a mentally-challenged janitor (his acting is incredible, and it's hilarious!), so with his help the job should be simple...
This movie was simply put: AWESOME. It was brilliantly realized by the actors and the director, and the action was superb. Predictable ending but incredible action...never a dull moment. This is definitely *the* summer movie to see.
