The Thieves (Korean Title: Dodukdeul/Hangul: 도둑들) is a 2012 South Korean heist movie directed by Dong-hoon Choi. A group of Korean and Chinese thieves are brought together by the enigmatic Macao Park (Yun-seok Kim) to steal a $20 million diamond from the notorious fence Wei Hong in Macau. However, the thieves' separate agendas means that little goes to plan when they actually carry out the robbery, leading to a multinational chase as the thieves fight over the diamond.
The following weapons were used in the film The Thieves:
Colt Detective Special (3rd Generation)
A 3rd-generation Colt Detective Special is used by Andrew (Dal-su Oh) throughout the film. A Detective Special is also stolen from a Macau police officer's holster when Andrew and Popie (Jung-Jae Lee) attempt to escape from police custody.

A Beretta 92FS is used by Chen (Simon Yam) during a robbery at the beginning of the film, and later during the heist at the Macau casino. South Korean police officers, including the chief inspector (Jin-mo Ju) use Berettas during the finale in Busan.

One of Wei Hong's henchmen also uses a Glock during the finale, as does Julie (Angelica Lee).
