A great caper movie!

"I saw this on opening night in the theater and I had a great time. I knew, of course, that it wasn't going to win any awards, but I really had a lot of fun watching it, which is the best judge of a movie's quality- at least in my mind.Sean Connery is, of course, a classic. He makes bad movies good and good movies better. Catherine Zeta-Jones is simply the most beautiful actress in Hollywood today (nice to see a girl with a full-figure, as opposed to, say, Gweynth Paltrow). The supporting cast is interesting as well, but Ving Rhames must be sick of playing the heavy.As for the film itself, the plot is fairly entertaining, with crosses and double-crosses until the last reel. The highlights here (and the reason I enjoy the film) are, of course, the theft sequences, and they are beautifully directed and edited. Even if you hate the film, the mask-heist will grab you.The new DVD special-edition is a marked improvement over the old one- the new anamorphic transfer is flawless and the extras (while still a bit slim) are good. I especially enjoyed the director's dry humor on the commentary track.Overall, this is a fun blockbuster that won't really make you think too much, and it is a good way to spend a few hours."
Enticed by Entrapment

"Finally, a film with so many twists and turns and wondering who's working or betraying who without getting confused ( Anybody remember Mission Impossible with Tom Cruise; to this day I still thought that movie was a perplexing mess) ! Even the use of the high tech equipment was easy to follow in Entrapment... Catherine Zeta-Jones is definitely a gorgeous and sensual woman with a lot of class.She strongly resembles the classic Hollywood beauty reminiscent of Vivian Leigh from Gone With The Wind and other Hollywood sexy sirens of the 30's, 40's, and 50's.What's amazing about Jones is how she can switch off or un-do her thick Welsh-European accent in any movie and convert over to either American or Mexican (Zorro); Talk about ironing out your natural accent. Sean Connery is still Mr. Cool or Slick when it comes to any role he plays; He exudes a lot of confidence and sophistication; Connery is an example of what a true gentleman should be like(smooth and suave, especially with the ladies). I'll admit his character was a bit rough with Jones' in the beginning; all for good reason, though. I more than highly recommend this movie for its polished ( yet, not too polished) ensemble of characters, story, plot, twists and turns of excitement and intrigue ! The only mentionable annoyance was toward the end at the train/sub station with the characters hide and go seek exchanges. This movie does not require the viewer to sit next to someone and ask every five minutes about what's going on--the I don't get it?--syndrome..."

"Entrapment is a very action packed film. It DOES NOT use violence or gore to make it entertaining. It has some intense scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot was excellent, and it changed quite rapidly. The acting and directing was superb. Sean Connery was better than ever and Catherine Zeta-Jones added an interesting touch. I strongly suggest you rent this, it is well worth it!"
What the Eye never saw...

"It might be the subtitle for this highly entertaining action-thriller. In fact it's more a cat and mouse game... but who's the cat? In the best tradition of Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief" it's a well balanced movie.Sean Connery is in his top form when mixing duty with humor. Catherine Zeta-Jones is amazingly subtle in her role. She starts out cocky and glizzy only to end up being confused to the kazoo in her encounter with Connery.This is a pure actioner, not a minute passes without a twist in the plot and nobody stands still for much too long.There double-crosses, triple-crosses and quadruple-crosses,... well in fact, there are so many crosses one could become dizzy...It's a harmless no-brainer, but so well acted and directed that you will be constantly gripping your armchair just to see what happens next.The DVD edition is not top notch, but with a movie like this one who cares... You get engulfed into the action practically as the movie starts and the rollercoaster ride ends when the movie ends. So who's got the time to examine wether frame 121 was sharp enough or if that squeeky noise on the right channel was really perfect.Once you enter in the game it won't let you loose one minute and you will almost shout at it to stop, but as Zeta-Jones, you will be dragged even deeper into the charade and be so fascinated by it that you won't want it stop once it does.The finale is a pure surprise and, though not unexpected for a Hollywood movie, truly original.If you like this kind of movies, this one is certainly for you and will keep you guessing to the end on the who does what to whom and why... but who is really what and does really what to whom? Have fun with it... and let the ride of your lifetime begin..."
