This film is one of the best films I have ever seen, brilliantly acted, great script and a fantastic storyline. Humorous, sad, and intriguing. set in the near future a retired cat burglar is given a robot aid to help him because of repetitive memory lapses. what happens next is.... unexpected, but what would you expect from a retired cat burglar! get it, watch it, then watch it again to see all the things you missed the first time!

It was OK, but so much less than it could have been. A great idea but dissappointingly inhibited in it's treatment, with no recognition of the importance of emotional engagement in story telling.
There should have been much more vigour and varity in the pacing but instead was rather flat throughout, serving up prim lectures on the reality of artificial Inteligence when it should have been pulling out all the stops to make it exciting, fun and entertaining. It was after all a comedy adventure and nothing more . . and ended in a final bonanza of dissapointments. A film made by people who were determined that we were not going to experience anything irresponsible like fun. Inexperienced film making I thought.

Highly enjoyable film that is well acted and shot and moves along at a steady pace.

Not going to spoil it but basically a retired jewel thief in his twilight years is given a robot to help with his domestic chores but they team up for one more heist. Fantastic. One of those little gems of a story (and film) that come along every now and then.

Would highly recommend this film and I found it engrossing and highly enjoyable, it being a bit different from the rest.

Now if only I could work out how to make the hoover raid the ATM machines.............

A lovely, quiet and unassmuming movie. Fans of action.... don't bother. For those who like a gentler more considered film, this is a gem. An excellent cast give great performances. Frank Langella is excellent in his role as the ex cat burglar with a fading memory, holding onto his independence - while the rest of the cast give great support. It's particularly worth noting that there is an actor in that robot suit!

It's lovely to see some films featuring older performers, rather than only the young ones. I loved the twist in this film of the robot supposed to be helping Frank with day-to-day tasks and Frank turning the tables. Great fun suitable for the whole family - let the kids see grandpa in a totally different light!

Can't understand what all the fuss is about. It's watchable but that's about all I can say except that Frank Langella did a good job with a pretty crappy script..

clever slightly dark view of old age - some glorious twists ... the librarian for instance. old guys might not remember but the sense of self still exists. this is gently told with humour and pathos - adult film (not rude)
