News & Interviews for Entrapment
Critic Reviews for Entrapment
It's a superficial but entertaining caper that's a good, old-fashioned yarn.
Lives up to its title -- spend 100-plus minutes with this lacklustre thing and you definitely feel snookered.
A wildly expensive movie full of computers, nonsense and violence, a film where wit, romance, elegance - everything - is sacrificed on the altar of giganticism, cliche and over-the-top action.
The movie deflates early and sags from there!
Another soulless, by-the-numbers attempt to resurrect a genre that made money for the studios in the past.
Audience Reviews for Entrapment
I'm usually on for insane heist films but the below average non sensical lackluster Entrapment is a huge mess in all of the wrong ways. Firstly, the muzzled plot destroys any chance of chemistry between Connery and Zeta Jones which should have been the main priority as opposed to slickness and style, but unfortunately it doesn't grow to have that either. The characters go entirely undeveloped because of the cliched script and although it has a few inspired action sequences the result is something dark, ludicrious, boring and unexpectedly dull.
As far as heist films are concerned, Entrapment is often overlooked and it's no surprise as to why. The film has a mood of overbearing cliches thats been done a hundred time before. Done better too. But theres a strange appeal to this film that just makes it a passable heist/action film. Sean Connery delivers a memorable good performance (one of his last actually good performances, after this he went downhill before retirement). Entrapment is pure popcorn action film. The film is not meant to be perfect by any means. The film is pure entertainment. Despite the somewhat cliched formula, I thought it was still an interesting idea for a film. The acting is good, the suspense is there and the action is top notch. Obviously the reason this film has gotten so much praise is because of Catherine Zeta-Jones famous ass shot. In almost ever review, reviewers everywhere has praised the famous scene. I'll admit the scene is very sexy and all, but you shouldn't judge a film because of that scene alone. Theres plenty of things aside from the laser scene to enjoy. Entrapment is a film that will surely appeal to heist fans, despite its slightly cliched plot. The film does have enough thrills to appeal to anyone who enjoys a good action yarn, and if you're looking for a terrific Sean Connery performance, Entrapment is one of his last good films. Of course it's not his best film, but it certainly isn't his worst. An entertaining good time and an absolute blast.
great flick, put zeta jones on the map
