Movie Summary

Michael Lehmann

Hudson Hawk stars Bruce Willis as the titular cat burglar. Fresh from a ten year stint in prison, all Hawk wants to do is relax and have a nice cappuccino. Unlucky for him, an enterprising criminal couple known as The Mayflowers pull him back in for one final job. Hawk must use his skills to obtain a special array of crystals needed to power a machine invented by Leonardo da Vinci that turns lead into gold.
