"It still takes muscle, it still takes nerve,” James McAvoy's auctioneer Simon maintains about stealing precious art before Vincent Cassel's mob enter his auction house and nab a Goya, bomping Simon on the head. But the pair are in cahoots, see. Of course they are. However, the head injury has impaired Simon's memory and he can't remember where he put the painting. So he's forced to see a sexy hypnotist (Rosario Dawson). No one comes out with any credit in this muddled thriller.
