Nearly twenty years after hanging the James Bond costume, the Irish actor has not lost any of his natural charm and destructive humor. He proves it once again with the host film BRAQUAGE EN OR, directed by action blockbuster specialist Rennie Harlin.
Redistribution of wealth
Richard Pace (Pierce Brosnan) makes it clear from the beginning that he is only traveling for the first time. If he can afford luxury tastes, his passion lies in stealing the rarest watches possible. Not only is he one of the best thieves on this planet, he is also considered a real escape king. Two rare qualities that attract the attention of “misfits” are a group of thieves who do not have the same values, because its members must be taken in principle from the rich deceivers, and they must return their scams to the unfortunate people. Although they are all experts in their respective fields – Vic (Mike de Angelo) is an explosives pro, for example, Violet (Jamie Chung) is a martial arts expert – their next theft will require Pace’s help because it’s a discovery. One way to loot the most secure prison in the Middle East is to prevent the mountain of gold contained in it from financing terrorism.
Unfortunately for Misfits, Richard Pace is not in a position to redistribute the money he is stealing, especially for such a difficult and risky robbery. But the intervention of his daughter Hope (Hermione Corfield) – who was alone in the matter of cheating – may have changed his mind, perhaps for very personal reasons. But an FBI agent needs to be considered for a while to keep pace, and another cast member, Tim Roth, is involved. All these beautiful little people explode, because BRAQUAGE EN OR is nothing more than a good heist film that does not take itself seriously, and its mix of humor and action (with glowing bolides of force) is reminiscent of a cross between glamorous valves. The Robberies of the Ocean Trilogy (Steven Soderbergh, 2001-2007) and The Targets of Fast and Furious, which have delighted Hollywood for twenty years.
Pierce Brosnan, thief gentleman
For his role in BRAQUAGE EN OR, the Irish actor did not go astray, remembering that for more than fifteen years the space of four films has been an inseparable one from that of tuxedos, luxury watches, cars, sportswear, and bikini models. Security prisons run by shady men in distant sunny destinations: James Bond. But Pierce Brosnan was not the only one using the Secret Agent costume. This is because he played at least three times as many of the immortalized “Gentleman Burglar” in a piece sung by Jacques Datronk before he played the lead role in Rennie Harley’s film.
In 1999, he became the successor to the Steve McQueen Memorial, starring as the billionaire thief of the precious New York met painting in Thomas Crown (John McDairnon), a remake of the 1968 film Norman Juvison. A few years later, when it’s time to say goodbye to 007, Pierce Brosnan appeared on COUP D’ECLAT (Brett Ratner, 2005), where he took on the role of a famous diamond thief enjoying himself in the Bahamas. Salma Hayek tries to escape from an FBI agent played by Woody Harrelson. Finally, this is another diamond that Pierce Brosnan covets at the DUO D’ESCROCS (Joel Hopkins, 2014) in Paris, in which he tries to steal a precious stone from his ex-wife’s company, introduced by Emma Thompson. Pierce Brosnan, about 70 years old, continues to be a thief – quite simply, even the best man in the world, and he proves it again with the Brockwave n ‘Or.
