It is in Gray's spirited execution that such by-the-book formula makes for a brisk, slick entertainment hits the summer movie spot.

This one offers some agreeably mindless fun in which the villains (including Norton) are truly villainous, the payback is satisfying in a purely infantile way, and the familiarity of everything is oddly comforting.

Gary Gray's version is tauter, better made but insufficiently idiosyncratic to attract a cult following.

Gray adds some zip to this remake of the 1969 Michael Caine caper flick, but despite two clever action sequences and some uncharacteristically tight performances from his cast (most notably Charlize Theron and Mark Wahlberg), the con remains the same.

A passable time-waster ... directed with some grace and snap.

Itresembles a film made up on the fly. The cast, too, are strictly cut from comic books. Don't expect any unconventional endings either.

Film Threat

Heist movies seem pretty quaint and analog in our era where high stakes crime is primarily electronic in nature. But until someone can make embezzlement cinematically interesting, we're left with theft and this movie just gets away with it.

F. Gary Gray has crafted a fun summer film packed with action, comedy, and a talented ensemble cast.

Gray does a solid enough job behind the camera, although it's clear he feels more at home directing the action sequences than the quieter moments.

Surprisingly gratifying ... In a summer full of computer-generated, nu-metal-accompanied kicks to the midsection, this may be the closest you'll get to drawing room grace.

Cette production estivale est divertissante l'espace d'un instant si l'on ne cherche pas à en trouver les moindres défauts.

This is escapist fare that doesn't pretend to be Shakespeare. For what it purports to be, I found it entertaining.

This unglamorous approach has the odd effect of making them seem more glamorous -- we're free to soak up their star quality because there's no hard sell to fight off.

Window to the Movies

A light caper movie, with heavy emphasis on the word 'light' -- light plot, light action, light violence, light sex, light humor, light acting.

It is neither good nor bad, engaging nor boring, sexy nor pedestrian.

... workmanlike heist flick with some funny lines and some good (if brief) chases ...
