Neeson performs Tom Carter, a former Marine who has cleaned out sufficient banks to earn the nickname the In and Out Bandit, and he is launched plying his commerce. When he meets Annie (Kate Walsh), he decides to cool down and are available clear, contacting the FBI and providing them a deal: A light-weight sentence, close to the place she will go to him, in trade for returning the stolen loot.
Still, an prolonged plea deal would not precisely meet the customary motion necessities, so Carter is fairly shortly double-crossed by corrupt brokers, forcing him to go on the run and defend himself. In pursuit are FBI brokers harboring completely different targets, probably the most outstanding being Agent Meyers (Jeffrey Donovan), who spends his spare time cooing at his canine, and a pair of youthful brokers (Jai Courtney, Anthony Ramos) beneath his supervision.
Mostly, it is an excuse for Neeson to say issues like “I’m comin’ for you” as solely he can, and finally marshal his thieving/safecracking skills in opposition to these pursuing him. Unfortunately, each he and maybe particularly Walsh are saddled with a number of unhealthy dialogue (the movie was written and directed by Mark Williams), within the latter case punctuated by her comprehensible shock that the brand new man in her life is all of a sudden a fugitive.
To be honest, “Honest Thief” is sincere about its intentions, offering a check-your-brain-at-the-door escape. Of course, the choice to enter the door to a theater with a view to see one thing this marginal could possibly be one other matter.
“Honest Thief” premieres in theaters on Oct. 16. It’s rated PG-13.
