Movie Info

A small-time crook who worships Steve McQueen gets in over his head in French music video director Dominique Forma's debut feature, Scenes of the Crime.

A sizzler that someone like Sam Peckinpah would probably give his stamp of approval.

...it's impossible not to get a kick out of watching [Noah] Wyle kill a man using a silenced pistol.

Worth watching if only for the half-dozen familiar faces and a few scenes that ratchet up the intensity quite serviceably.

just not executed well enough..Jeff Bridges is one of today's best actors. He's just a delight. So what the heck is he doing in some unremarkable crime thing like "Scenes of the Crime"?

Audience Reviews for Scenes of the Crime

Putting aside the fact that Jon Abrahams is very annoying and can?t act to save his life, I really got into this film. That was until the end. Wtf? This film didn't so much as end, it just stopped, leaving unfinished sub-plots which turned out to be pointless and disappointing. This film could have been great but instead all its good work is destroyed by a misguided end. The good cast was also wasted.

It never quite lives up to the buildup and strength of the overall cast (save Jon Abrahams-who is bad), with a muddled third act and sloppy characterizations. Still, it has enough tense moments and twists to keep things interesting.
