It's like Ocean's Eleven. Only, in Korea.
Foreign movies are a tough sell for American audiences, we know. But that won't be a problem for The Thieves, Korea's highest-grossing movie of all time. After all, The Thieves stars Jung Jae Lee, Kim Yun Seok, and Gianna Jun (Snow Flower and the Secret Fan), and director Dong Hun Choi's last movie was the highly successful (in Korea) Juon Woo Chi!
Okay, so maybe The Thieves lacks a little name recognition here in the States, but consider The Raid: Redemption, an Indonesian action flick that was beloved by critics stateside and now has a sequel and an American remake in the works (and, if you like action movies and haven't seen it, you should probably correct that). We're not saying that The Thieves will have the same success, but after watching the movie's first trailer, it looks like it has potential. More than can be said for a lot of the underwhelming offerings coming out of Hollywood on a regular basis.at home and abroad
