For me one of the best remakes ever made, a very watchable (and re-watchable) film.
Based on the 1968 film of the same name, THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR offers a peak into the nefarious lives of the rich and famous. Thomas Crown (Pierce Brosnan) is a man with looks, wit, and millions of dollars, yet the only way he can feel truly alive is during the thrill of the heist. When a valuable Monet painting comes to town, Crown decides stealing it would be the ultimate rush. As the New York high society demands justice, little do they--or the police--suspect that one of their very own has committed the crime. Expert Catherine Danning (Rene Russo) is brought in investigate the stolen Monet painting. But as she come closer to proving Crown guilty, she is drawn into his world, and falls in deeply in love with him.
For THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, director John McTiernan takes action elements of his previous films (both the explosive urban setting of DIE HARD and the racy pursuit feel of PREDATOR) and spins them into a sophisticated thriller about the downfalls of wealth and high society.
