From Back Cover:
"A SLICK AND SMART CAPER MOVIE."
-JEFFREY LYONS, NBC
When professional grifter Jake Vig (Edward Burns) chooses the wrong mark in The King (Dustin Hoffman), he is given two choices: pull off a near impossible heist or lose his life.
Needing all the help he can get, Jake brings in beautiful con artist Lily (Rachel Weisz) and a mixed group of "professionals". Nonetheless, with The King riding him and a pesky Special Agent (Andy Garcia) on his tail, Jake and his team look to have the odds stacked against them.
"A VERY SMART THRILLER!"
-MICK LaSALLE, SAN FRANCISCO CHORNICLE
Not the best movie, but entertaining enough.
Rated R (MPAA)
