    A couple who pickpocket their way across the country, get to a point when the woman wants out, she bails, but later are reconnected as she has a young dumb kid with loads money who she is set tro travel on a train. the two rekingle, with him a eye on his money, but hes not only one as train has various calibre of criminals, its here where the couple must look into there heart. a well meaningful film, with a eye on the thrill and con but also the emotions of their newfound friend, its slick at times and comes together well. Andy lau and rene liu are great together and add a lot to overall film.

    This was just BAD! I liked Li Bingbing. She's hot as usual. Her character doesn't do so much, which is a shame. The story is just crap. It didn't have much of depth and substance. There was little of interesting characters. Some weren't very likeable and some were just pure annoying. Acting was terrible from the cast. There's a lot of fail in this, in fact there's some epic fail. This doesn't have much to be really excited about. There were some scenes that I liked a bit. When they tried filming fight scenes, they just shot too close and I couldn't tell what the hell was going on. This is just a silly film with very little enjoyment to be found.

    Chinese films excel at staying focused on the main themes and not deviating, and 'A World Without Thieves' is no exception. The majority of the action is within plain sight of the civilians, yet still kept secret, which is a really neat gimmick. The main cast have clear characteristics and motives, which means as a viewer, you very quickly become attached to them from the start. And hey, who doesn't love a classic Chinese ending? ...

    This is based on a short story but Dir. Feng Xiaogang made the film surpass the original story. A must see.
