Independent distributors Well Go USA have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray the South Korean blockbuster The Thieves (2012). The film has grossed over $82M in South Korea. Currently, it is the most successful film in the country's box office history. Street date is February 12th.
It's the score of their lives - if they can pull it off. Five thieves at the top of their game, and the crew is assembling for their biggest job yet. Popie's the muscle and brains, Pepsee's the safecracker, Yenicall climbs walls, Zampano is the strategy man, and Chewingum is the master of disguise. But this new score – it's hot. Maybe too hot. But who can resist the Tear of the Sun: a 318-carat diamond, worth 20 million dollars, and locked away in a casino. The vault is impenetrable, the location covered in cops, and everyone knows there's no honor among thieves - especially not the crew Macao Park, Popie's old partner, has forced their team to work with. As they gear up and stroll into the casino with a plan, skills, and a whole lot of nerve, they quickly learn that avoiding the cops may not be their toughest problem. What's Macao Park's real motive? Who will betray them all? And who will walk away with the diamond?
It looks more like a take on Ocean's Eleven rather than Expendables.
I'm sure since it's being distributed in the US, that it will have English subtitles.
While it does look pretty good, I hope netflix or Hulu gets is so I can watch it before I buy.
