Movie Reviews

Tape Measure
hille2000 | USA | 02/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Anderson Tapes conspicuously mentioned in this film's title are very peripheral to the film's plot. Instead we have a brilliant `caper film' set in a New York City townhouse in early 1971. The images are still memorable of a balding Sean Connery as the leader and brains behind the heist. And who can forget that stoic and peculiar looking member of Connery's team, Christopher Walken in his first film. What an impression he made. This film still looks current even today. This is a real suspenseful film full of great characterizations. A good one!"

"Sean Connery turns in an excellent and memorable performance in this excellent thriller competently acted, well scripted and neatly directed about a heist where everything is not what it appears to be. This film is full of great characters and suspense. Quincy Jones composed a great score. Look for Christopher Walken's distinctive face in his film debut. It will keep you on the edge of your seat."
Sean Connery's Best
khense | Los Angeles, CA | 06/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As thriller,"Anderson Tapes"is average. However as theater - an ensemble piece - it's an American classic. Sean's best role: a likeable guy out of jail after staying quiet for ten years on behalf of the mob. They owe him a favor (small potatoes)which is the problem (they now prefer big business - linen service, construction, etc.). Ultimately they stake Connery and his magnificent raggedy crew to pull a major burglary (Sean's retirement). Meanwhile the FBI (in search of bigger fish) monitors Connery's ensuing bad luck like an indifferent god."
Warning-this is NOT a period piece

"The Anderson Tapes is an example of what director Sidney Lumet is capable of creating: an entertaining yet somehow thoughtful film. This was the movie that actually made me appreciate Sean Connery. In the Bond films he was doomed to be typecast. Sidney Lumet bailed him out and Connery owes him big time. Great setup and cameos: including an underrated scene with the great Garret Morris as a limber police officer, who would go on to become one of the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players on Saturday Night Live just a few years later (along with Belushi, Chase, Radner, etc.). Christopher Walken looks like a baby in this one and Martin Balsam is pretty funny. Nice flash forward scenes make it seem like it can never be a dated film. Chilling last scene makes the film and a point about our technological age."
