Updated: Nov 18, 2020

Liam Neeson, Kate Walsh, Jai Courtney, Anthony Ramos, Jeffrey Donovan and Robert Patrick


Liam Neeson returns to doing what he does best in a gripping action thriller that pits him against corrupt FBI agents and affairs of the heart...

Tom Carter (Neeson) is a high-profile bank robber, known as the "In-And-Out Bandit", due to his ability to plan and carry out over 8 vault robberies across a decade and always evade capture.

His outlook to life changes when he falls for Annie Sumpter (Kate Walsh) and proposes to hand himself over to the FBI, return all the money and negotiate a shorter jail term to clear his conscious for the future.

But two corrupt FBI agents, Nivens (Jai Courtney) and Hall (Anthony Romos), decide to keep the extensive haul for themselves and assassinate Carter in the process. But Carter isn't going to let that happen, and vows to fights back...

Hard to imagine Liam Neeson is now pushing 70 years old, but he delivers another brisk action flick with 'Honest Thief', this time trying to be a good man with a dark past, turning his life around to make a fresh start with new love Annie, played by Kate Walsh.

As former Marine Tom Carter who spent the last 10 years robbing banks and storing the money away, he falls for Annie and they make plans for a future together, finally giving him the spark he needs to clear his conscience. He opts to hand over all the money to the FBI, negotiate a short jail term and have protection for Annie until he is out.

But, being a Liam Neeson flick, things don't go according to plan...
