The Score

Critics Consensus

Though the movie treads familiar ground in the heist/caper genre, Robert DeNiro, Edward Norton, and Marlon Brando make the movie worth watching.

    Yes this heist movie is pretty standard and has a predictable twist, but it is still very entertaining. Edward Norton is especially impressive, playing a mentally challenged individual. Definetley recommended for heist lovers.

    Like a thick chunk of Grandma's extra cheesy, extra meaty lasagna this promises much insofar as admirers of Stanislavski go, 3 heavyweights in one cagematch as it were, generations represented. But one requires a script and action to use all of that muscle and unfortunately this film plays like having the Incredible Hulk fold yer underwear on moving day, which is to say not the best use of all the available talents. What you get instead is just them being there, their presence ("Oh look, there they are!") instead of the promised cagematch. That disappointment flavors this review, the viewing experience, and it'll do the same for you ... unless you are blessed to be ignorant of just who these giants are and their potential. Not being that soul I cannot say how this plays w/o knowledge of just whom it is that renders the work. For me it was like DaVinci turns in one of those big eyes, little cat lost pictures.

    From director Frank Oz comes the heist film The Score. The plot follows a Montreal jazz club own who moonlights as a thief and is offered a score that will set him up for life, but to pull off the job he'll have to take on a partner that he doesn't trust. Starring Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, and Marlon Brando, the cast is especially strong. And, Oz does an impressive job at bringing tense and drama to the planning and execution of the robbery. But the script is weak, and doesn't develop the characters well enough to become invested in the heist's outcome. While the storytelling has its problems, The Score is still an exciting and entertaining thriller.
