The Moon Thieves


Vincent Ma Man-shun (Edan LUI) is an expert at making “refitted” watches. He buys pawned watches, removes parts and refits them into custom-made watches which he sells for a profit. Their legality is questionable since his products are essentially counterfeits. This is leverage used by a crooked watch dealer, the ruthless Uncle (KEUNG To), to force Vincent to put together a team of thieves to steal three valuable watches from a store in Tokyo. He will be working with veteran thief Chief (Louis CHEUNG), explosives expert Mario (Michael NING) and young master lock breaker Yoh (Anson LO). Right from the get-go, Vincent sees a lack of trust and understands that each man has an ulterior motive for joining and it all comes to a head when they find an even more valuable watch – The Moonwatch – and one of the members takes it. Thus, a thrilling story where they are pursued by the yakuza ensues… [Jason MAHER]
