A movie with a preposterous plot, exotic locations, absurd action sequences, and so much chemistry between attractive actors that we don't care.

Entrapment simply reminds us again how far Hollywood is from the true legacies of its greatest genre directors.

The plot grinds tediously trying to twist and surprise, but each turn is hollow and contrived!

Manufactures sparks when none are naturally forthcoming.

All in all, "Entrapment" is a cute/clever, rather TV-esq picture that could have used just a little more heart.

Director Jon Amiel apparently spent more time lighting close-ups of Zeta-Jones' writhing butt than trying to pull some chemistry or humor from our self-centered good-bad guys.

The problem is that the movie lacks energy, wit and -- gasp! -- even sex appeal.

The satisfying ending occurs about five minutes before the contrived, tacked-on Hollywood ending.

The film's substantial weaknesses deflate our enthusiasm and ultimately leave us wishing for a little more substance and a little less plot trickery.

The kind of slick, sleek entertainment that shows audiences a good time mostly because of an elaborately tricky plot.
| Original Score: 3/4

If it's a good heist movie you're after, there are surely better ways to go than with this limp caper.

Quickly gets bogged down in a flaccid romance that seems about as genuine as Bob Dole in a Viagra commercial, and has even worse dialogue.

Lethargic and too-long thriller.

Most of Entrapment plays out in head-scratching 'Huh? Why? Eh?' moments.

Connery and Zeta-Jones not only look great together, they work well together, too.
Shirley Sealy
Film Journal International

Cleverly updates the formula with a sprinkling of fun, fin-de-millennium touches.

Mick LaSalle

An adventure movie without two brain cells to rub together. But Connery's sad and reflective acting gives the movie depth and poignancy.

Connery and Zeta-Jones are such fun to watch together it almost doesn't matter how little sense the movie makes -- and their relationship is far more gleefully perverse, weirdly chivalrous and surprisingly interesting than the trailer makes it look.

Absurdist escapism in its most classic form.
