I have a soft spot for heist movies.
And Shirley MacLaine.
And Michael Caine.
And movies about inept crooks.
Which, given that they all come together in Gambit, made this a film I had to watch.
Gambit begins in Hong Kong, where Harry Dean (Michael Caine) surreptitiously follows a woman through the streets of Hong Kong. He watches until she goes into a night club.
Later, we see the woman in action, as she (Shirley MacLaine) dances at the club. Harry takes a seat beside his friend and associate Emile (John Abbott) and they watch the woman, Emile with a surprised but approving look on his face. Yes, she will be the perfect fit.
