“The Thieves” is a high octane action/heist movie, involving a gang that is going for their ultimate last robbery – a $20 million dollar diamond called “Tear of the Sun” – and experiencing many unexpected consequences. Directed by Dong-Hoon Choi, and featuring locations in South Korea (Seoul, Busan) and China (Hong Kong, Macau), “The Thieves” is as exciting and unpredictable as the best in the action film genre.

Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com will introduce the film and will lead a discussion after the 6:30pm showing on June 24 (doors open at 5:45pm). The historic Chicago Cultural Center is located at 76 E. Washington.

Admission is FREE to the “The Thieves” film event, co-presented by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, the Korean Consulate General of Chicago and the Chicago International Film Festival (Cinema/Chicago).

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).

  • Wonder Woman

    CHICAGO – There are few films in 2017 that are as historically important as they are cinematically well-crafted. Of those, there is only one I saw three times in theaters. That honor comes in the form of the revolutionary “Wonder Woman,” which not only shows huge promise for the future of DC Comics films but for comic book-based films as a whole.
