Di­rec­tor Peter Hewitt made the leap from sit­com star (he was the orig­i­nal Joey in Bread) to writer/ di­rec­tor thanks to Sliding Doors. Al­though his out­put since then hasn’t been as ef­fec­tive as that Gwyneth Pal­trow ve­hi­cle, any movie with Christo­pher Walken, Mor­gan Free­man and Wil­liam H Macy is worth a look, as this one proves. It cen­tres on Roger, a se­cu­rity guard work­ing at an Amer­i­can museum, who at­tempts to stop a beloved paint­ing be­ing sold to a gallery in Den­mark, so he and two like-minded guards at­tempt to steal the piece. No clas­sic, but it passes the time a treat.

It’s a steal: Wil­liam H Macy, Christo­pher Walken and Mor­gan Free­man.
