As far as heist films are concerned, Entrapment is often overlooked and it's no surprise as to why. The film has a mood of overbearing cliches thats been done a hundred time before. Done better too. But theres a strange appeal to this film that just makes it a passable heist/action film. Sean Connery delivers a memorable good performance (one of his last actually good performances, after this he went downhill before retirement). Entrapment is pure popcorn action film. The film is not meant to be perfect by any means. The film is pure entertainment. Despite the somewhat cliched formula, I thought it was still an interesting idea for a film. The acting is good, the suspense is there and the action is top notch. Obviously the reason this film has gotten so much praise is because of Catherine Zeta-Jones famous ass shot. In almost ever review, reviewers everywhere has praised the famous scene. I'll admit the scene is very sexy and all, but you shouldn't judge a film because of that scene alone. Theres plenty of things aside from the laser scene to enjoy. Entrapment is a film that will surely appeal to heist fans, despite its slightly cliched plot. The film does have enough thrills to appeal to anyone who enjoys a good action yarn, and if you're looking for a terrific Sean Connery performance, Entrapment is one of his last good films. Of course it's not his best film, but it certainly isn't his worst. An entertaining good time and an absolute blast.

Mac: Rule number one: never carry a gun. If you carry a gun you may be tempted to use it. Rule number two: never trust a naked woman.

While describing this movie to my friend who came in late, I told her that it's about thieves thieving so they can be successful in thieving. One's the master thief and the other's the rookie thief trying to prove herself to the master. I said this and realized that this is a very easy movie to come and enjoy. It's in no way original and it involves two of the sexiest people in the world trying to one-up each other.

Mac: We'll either both get caught or both get dead.

Sean Connery is a master thief and Catherine Zeta Jones is a rookie thief posing as an insurance agent. She seeks Connery out with a proposition to learn from him as well as make a lot of money.

From there we get a number of twists and turns revolving around alliances and how-do-they-do-it thieving scenes.

And besides the forced romantic factor between Jones and Connery, the movie is very sexy showing both characters. Connery is at his most Conneryist here and Jones struts her ass through lasers. What more could you want? Well, you get Ving Rhames being his cool self as well.

Its a very decent movie, that flies by very quickly and is fun enough.

Mac: Has there ever been anyone you couldn't manipulate, beguile or seduce?
Gin: No.

A dreary high-tech heist movie. The stars may be British but the wealth of extraneous travelogue details (castles, stately homes and red telephone boxes in the British segment) show this to be squarely aimed at the American market. Honestly, you'd think it was subsidised by the British tourist board. Zeta-Jones and Connery are okay but there's no real chemistry between them; perhaps Catherine couldn't imagine herself falling for some craggy old dude at this phase in her career.

A pretty good heist movie as Connery plays a daring thief thought to be long retired. Has good chemistry between the 2 leads and the scenes filmed in Malaysia at the Petrona towers are cool.

Good movie. I was amazed at some of the special effects and how well the script was written. The plot is fun and the setting is very entertaining.

While the movie has it's moments of fun, it's poor script and contrived plot takes away any chance of it being anything more then a forgettable action film. Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones both play their parts well and there is some chemistry but overall it's lost in the long reaching plot arc. There is some tension and suspense during the heists that help "Entrapment" not be a completely pointless film. This is one of those lazy day watches that is entertaining enough but ultimately forgettable.

This film has serious depth, and pognincey, but it lacks deep insight on the thign we call the story, and plot. Even with great acting, we have no solid reason to care what the film is aying, cause most don't know what it is in fact they are saying.

Sean Connery is universally seen as one of the best looking older man and that being said he is still Sean Connery, and will be cooler at 70 than just about anyone else at 30. Catherine Zeta Jones takes on the role of an insurance agent/undercover thief who hooks up with Sean Connery, a rich career criminal to execute a couple of huge international heists. It has suspense, spying, gadgetry, action, and keep you guessing to the end with a solid performance by both Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones. I would recommend this movie to anybody who is looking for something that's entertaining with a few twists and nothing too deep.

Deception is a fine art mastered by Sean and Zeta in their respective roles in the film.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is wonderful seductive in this light caper movie.
