It's the score of their lives - if they can pull it off. Five thieves at the top of their game, and the crew is assembling for their biggest job yet. Popie is the muscle and brains; Pepsee is the safecracker. Yenicall climbs walls, Zampano is the strategy man, and Chewingum is the master of disguise. But this new score - it's hot. Maybe too hot. But who can resist the Tear of The Sun: a 318-carat diamond, worth 20 million dollars, and locked away in a casino. The vault is impenetrable, the location covered in cops, and everyone knows there's no honor among thieves - especially not the crew Macao Park, Popie's old partner, has forced their team to work with

Skyfall will be the best-selling DVD and Blu-ray of the week, plus it is a contender for Pick of the Week.
