The Thieves (Blu-ray release 2013-2-12) is Korean movie about a group of Korean thieves, teamed up with a group of Chinese thieves, attempting to steal a diamond from a casino in Macau.  Although the set up of the group contains a contradiction, the movie is still interesting in that everyone has his/her own plan.  When all things go wrong, and before an important plot point is revealed, what happened on screen is a little confusing.  The plot is not flawless, but I imagine no movie about thieves stealing from a casino is.  I like this story, and I’m glad that it stays away from the Korean video tradition of being a tearjerker.
