Army of thieves
Make a prequel of a zombie movie without the zombies. Not a bad idea.
Yes, ok, “Army of the dead” was not only a film about the
living dead, but also a heist movie with sometimes romantic features.
His prequel, however, almost totally excludes monsters to bet
everything on a European heist movie focused on the figure of Dieter,
played by Matthias Schweighöfer who directs on the screenplay
written by Shay Hatten based on an idea, obviously, by Zack Snyder.
Co-star is Nathalie Emmanuel, the unforgettable Missandei from "Games
of Thrones". I wanted to say it soon because of my (completely
artistic) passion for Nathalie, who here once again demonstrates a
certain skill. Ok, ok, I admit it: she is extraordinarily beautiful.
Well, now that I have said that we can move on to the film and our
Dieter, the nerd expert in safes we already met in the previous film,
here at the centre of a European story, (Germany and Czech Republic the
locations and the setting) inspired , definitely to the figure of all
those very intelligent, good and polite thieves, who if they have to
deal with an ignorant and here a bit comical police, with obvious
quotations to other "colleagues" (see "Point Break")
But "Army of Thieves" is not just a heist movie, it is not a zombie
movie as already mentioned, but a work that tries to balance the
feelings that the protagonist feels towards the head of the gang (and I
would like to see ... since è Nathalie Emmanuel) with sprinkles
of humour, trying to give us a photograph with landscapes to remember.
An honest attempt, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Because
then in the end the speech is always that of a gang of psychologically
unstable robbers who try to make the blow of life, overcoming the
inevitable internal disputes and various unexpected events. Nothing
Dieter is an ordinary banker, rather boring, nerdy to the core, who
posts videos on YouTube on techniques for opening safes, which no one
One day he is invited to a competition of burglars (cunning
burglars) he wins and the (beautiful) Gwendoline (Nathalie Emmanuel), a
talented jewel thief, recruits him into his gang, which has a
particular mission, to open the four safes that the well-known
blacksmith Hans Wagner built inspired by his namesake composer.
Robberies in ascending order of difficulty, starting with the safe in
Paris, then moving on to that of Prague and then St. Moritz. In this
path of cunning crime, there is no lack of clashes within the gang that
change the plans in progress.
Pleasant, after all, with a direction that emphasizes the action and
the many chases. But in the end it remains a useless film, which adds
nothing to the history of cinema and which passes without leaving its
