This action adventure film was written and directed by Gerard Pires. It stars Stephen Dorff, Natasha Henstridge, Bruce Payne, Steven Berkoff, Cle Bennett and Steven McCarthy. This movie is actually released under four separate titles, but the international release title is Steal. The story is centered on a young, unique group of bank robbers and the heists they have pulled off. Slim, Frank, Otis and Alex have always had an active interest in extreme sports. Ever since they were young they managed to take rollerblading, skateboarding and snowboarding to new heights. Slim is the leader of the gang, and he is always looking for a new risk to take. He concocts a scheme to rob numerous banks and use extreme sports to escape. Their success rate is outstanding, and they have been dubbed “the masters of the runaway art” by the police. As they evade being captured, their confidence grows, but they realize that their luck can change at any time. Slim has devised a plan that can fetch them enough money to flee the country and retire. The plan is to rob five banks in five days and to net millions of dollars. By their second day of bank robbing, the group scores $20 million dollars in untraceable bonds, and they decide to end their spree. Then they receive an anonymous call informing them that he knows their identity and will turn them in if they don’t pull a heist for him. At the same time, the Mafia approaches them and threatens to kill them if they refuse to rob banks for them. Now they must find a way to avoid being caught, being killed and flee with their windfall. Throughout their crime spree, Lieutenant MacGruder has been trying to crack the case and figure out their identity. He has come close a few times, but each time they manage to slip away. Now there is a new detective that has been assigned to the case, and she isn’t so sure that the lieutenant is really trying to solve it at all.
