A third added: "Absolutely loved #ArmyOfThieves A top tier prequel to #ArmyOfTheDead and such an interesting back story to Dieter. A cheesy heist flick that doesn't take itself too seriously. @missnemmanuel stole the show, hope she reunites with Dieter for #PlanetOfTheDead."

Meanwhile, Army of Thieves has also got viewers talking as two of the movie's stars are dating in real life. Ruby O. Fee, who stars as Korina, and Matthias Schweighöfer, who directed the flick and also who plays Ludwig Diete, are in a relationship.
