(2021) (Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action-Comedy: An FBI profiler and a prolific art thief end up as unlikely partners as they try to prevent another art thief from stealing three rare pieces that once belonged to Cleopatra.
Long ago, Marcus Antonius of Rome had three large art eggs created for Queen Cleopatra of Egypt. Two of those were found in the early 1900s, with one ending up in the possession of an international arms dealer, Sotto Voce (CHRIS DIAMANTOPOULOS), the second now held at an art museum in Rome, and the third nowhere to be found. FBI profiler John Hartley (DWAYNE JOHNSON), who specializes in art theft, is certain that art thief Nolan Booth (RYAN REYNOLDS) is targeting the one held in the museum, and he shows up there with Interpol agent Inspector Urvashi Das (RITU ARYA) and her team.
Nolan manages to elude them, but John and Urvashi later catch him, although the subsequent theft of that egg seems to point to John as the suspect. That results in him and Nolan ending up as cellmates in a black ops prison located deep inside Russia. There, they learn that the world's number one art thief, The Bishop (GAL GADOT), is behind their current situation, with her wanting to obtain all three eggs for her client, a wealthy Egyptian businessman who wants them for his daughter's wedding.
With John needing to clear his name and catch The Bishop, and Nolan wanting to beat her to the punch of obtaining those eggs, the two form an unlikely alliance to meet their goals.
