The Code, also known as Thick as Thieves, is a 2009 crime thriller directed by Mimi Leder. In the film, a chance meeting on a subway bus between an older thief, Ripley (Morgan Freeman) and a younger less experienced thief, Gabriel (Antonio Banderas) seems like a perfect criminal partnership. The men's personal criminal histories compliment each other and they quickly make plans to pull off a huge theft. The men are planning to steal two Faberge Imperial Eggs from a highly secure New York wholesaler. The younger thief, Gabriel, is hesitant to agree to the plan and worried about partnering with someone else, but the lure of the money is too much and he finally caves in to Ripley's plan. The men think they have planned for everything and so far the scheme is working perfectly. Unfortunately for the thieves, their perfect plan starts to fall apart when Ripley's beloved goddaughter, Alex (Radha Mitchell) goes missing. Now the two thieves must improve their plan if they are going to pull it off.moreless
