Audience Reviews for Thick as Thieves (The Code)

    American/German crime/heist film directed by Mimi Leder, starring Morgan Freeman, Antonio Banderas, and Radha Mitchell.Set in New York City, veteran thief Keith Ripley (Morgan Freeman) recruits younger crook Gabriel Martin (Antonio Banderas) to help him pull off one final job in order to repay his debt to the Russian mob, who had killed his previous partner, Victor Korolenko, over the debt before they could complete the plan. Interesting, but not well used and little explored plot in this fast movie.Antonio Banderas performance is shallow and poor, as the Morgan Freeman's.Only a surprise finale make this movie worth a uncompromised view.

    ¨Thick as Thieves (The Code)¨ is lazy, derivative and it is a pain to watch good talents in such trash. This is the kind of film in which I really feel I wasted my time.

    I'd never heard of this film and was surprised to see such a good cast in it. However after watching it I can see why it is unknown. The film tries desperately to be in the same league as 'The Sting' or 'Ocean's 11' but is let down by an overelaborate set-up and a clever clever ending. Radha Mitchell is good and Freeman and Banderas are fine (although Banderas is getting too old to play the young recruit!) but blink and you'll miss Tom Hardy. If you like the odd episode of 'Hustle' then this is silly fun but hardly memorable.

    Antonio has still got it. He is as hot today as we was when I first saw him in Desperado. This is a really good movie, and very funny to boot.
