Imagine going to see a film which you won't remember by the time you are at the bar for a post cinema pint - that is The Lookout.

The film describes emotional and moral rehabilitation in the face of extreme danger.

Daily Mirror [UK]

The Lookout drags itself into four star territory thanks to the startling turn from Gordon-Levitt - a name to, ahem, look out for.

An ingenious heist drama that views its familiar noir elements from an unexpected angle.

Retooling Memento with a hip young cast, Frank's debut feature steeps its familiar elements in graveyard humour and indie cool. Plot quibbles aside, the result both grips and moves; it'll be your lookout if you miss it...

It's a refreshing departure from formula and a thriller you won't easily forget.

Plot holes and a mixed tone lessen the impact but Gordon-Levitt holds it together with a strong lead performance.

The idea is intriguing, and the performances excellent, although lead Gordon-Levitt (Brick) is for once outshone by his co-stars.

Nowadays it is actually refreshing to get a crime thriller that doesn't try to be Pulp Fiction . . .

Refreshingly stripped-down.

Frank doesn't just set up clichés, he breaks them in two and spits in our face for buying into them...

Until it shifts into a thriller, this film is a provocatively involving drama

Window to the Movies

A satisfying movie, even if it doesn't all quite come together -- the heist-related portions feel almost perfunctory in a movie about a character who's anything but.

Apollo Guide

The credibility of its characters helps get through some rather large plausibility issues, succeeding both as a thriller and as a story of redemption and self-forgiveness.

...a small-town noir that is more gripping for its subtlety than for its action.

Murphy's Movie Reviews

My interest waxed and waned. The set up for the film seemed to take eons. Frank overstuffed the script with exposition, multiple subplots and some seemingly unnecessary sequences. Just as I was ready to dismiss the movie, he switched gears.

One thing's for sure, Mr. Gordon-Levitt has a fine career ahead of him. That's something to lookout for.

The Lookout makes it a solid and entertaining throwback to the crime thrillers of yesteryear.
