RIGHTEOUS THIEVES Review: A Palatable, But Flawed Caper

Director Anthony Nardolillo’s new film, Righteous Thieves, comes with a great premise to get things going for a worthy story of revenge and redemption. Pre-empting our tale are flashbacks leading up to the moment where Anabelle (Lisa Vidal) makes her entrance into the halls of the Syndicate, a group dedicated to securing and preserving artwork stolen by the Nazis in World War II. Despite failing a previous mission, Anabelle remains adherent to the promise she made to the late Holocaust survivor who once took her in, and with her eye on at least four paintings currently in the possession of a ruthless Nazi art hoarder named Otto (Brian Cousins), Anabelle gathers a team of familiars once more with the help of longtime partner, Eddie (Carlos Miranda).
