It's a superficial but entertaining caper that's a good, old-fashioned yarn.

Lives up to its title -- spend 100-plus minutes with this lacklustre thing and you definitely feel snookered.

A creaky star vehicle if there ever was one!

The legendary Sean Connery and the enthralling Catherine Zeta-Jones are less than the sum of their wonderful parts!

Entrapment simply reminds us again how far Hollywood is from the true legacies of its greatest genre directors.

Another soulless, by-the-numbers attempt to resurrect a genre that made money for the studios in the past.

The kind of slick, sleek entertainment that shows audiences a good time mostly because of an elaborately tricky plot.

An adventure movie without two brain cells to rub together. But Connery's sad and reflective acting gives the movie depth and poignancy.

The movie deflates early and sags from there!

It's often all too easy to see where the plot's headed; tiny holes and bigger ones open up under the story.

A snare for all those lured to theaters by Connery's name, Zeta-Jones' beauty, and the false promise of an enjoyable caper film.

Connery and Zeta-Jones not only look great together, they work well together, too.

Manufactures sparks when none are naturally forthcoming.

You pack the explosives, the weaponry and the emergency 'chute, and save the Viagra for later.

A movie with a preposterous plot, exotic locations, absurd action sequences, and so much chemistry between attractive actors that we don't care.

A wildly expensive movie full of computers, nonsense and violence, a film where wit, romance, elegance - everything - is sacrificed on the altar of giganticism, cliche and over-the-top action.
