The Anderson Tapes Reviews

June 6, 2019
The spectacle is entertaining, up to a point, but even the digital wizardry wears thin, and Dark Phoenix turns into a standard-brand miasma of explosions, collisions and swirling force fields.

Unfortunately, failed comedy and vigorous suspense are handcuffed together for the entire trip.

Although one of Sidney Lumet's minor efforts, "The Anderson Tapes" functions as a cool retro caper movie full of nostalgic details. The film's car chase climax is no joke.

Carries the unfortunate burden of echoing other, better films.

A good example of the now-neglected caper genre.

Lumet does manage to achieve a certain sarcastic humour.

Despite its heavy undertones of satire, irony and social comment, this entertaining film is basically a caper thriller.

Starring Sean Connery, Sidney Lumet's thriler is one of the best caper films of the 1970s
May 23, 2009
Weak caper flick that's phony, superficial and unconvincing, that too slickly veers between comedy and suspense.

Scripter Frank Pierson with director Sidney Lumet has injected broadly comic aspects and the laughs work without reducing suspense.

If this sort of thing bores you, you may want to give it a chance anyway because Christopher Walken ... makes his Hollywood film debut.

Watchable but curiously muffled thriller.
May 9, 2005
I am full of admiration for the superb pacing, the tactful understatement of the location shooting, the sharp feel of the city.
April 3, 2005
Good, old-fashioned Connery heist flick. Goes down smooth.

The Anderson Tapes is a crime caper movie which never quite makes up its mind whether it is suspense it is after or laughs.
