Product Description

When a priceless Rembrandt is stolen in New York, the evidence points to a solitary master thief (Connery), who is about to meet the insurance company's most cunning - and seductive - investigator (Zeta-Jones). Following a nerve-racking game of cat and m

Amazon.com

Sean Connery plays a master thief thought to be long retired, while Katherine Zeta-Jones is his foil, a hotshot insurance investigator assigned to his case. They both have a little something to hold over each other's heads, until it turns out that Zeta-Jones is a professional art thief herself and is playing on both sides of the fence. At first they eye each other with mutual distrust until they team up for a job, which goes off without a hitch. Inevitably their prickly relationship begins to thaw somewhat, and the two become attracted to each other as they plan out the massive Y2K bank scam that is the movie's climax (complete with sequel-ready ending). Entrapment plays somewhat like a '70s caper movie revamped for the gadget-happy high-tech '90s. The plot takes a few too many labored twists and turns, and the chemistry between the two leads is nearly nonexistent, though both carry on gamely in their parts. On the other hand, there is some genuine suspense in many scenes as they go about their business, dripping with whiz-bang burglary devices. Zeta-Jones, of course, is drop-dead gorgeous, and Connery is as reliable as always in his role. The fairly flat editing and direction tends to drag the film down somewhat, but fans of caper movies, high-tech thrillers, and the two leads should find plenty to like in this film. --Jerry Renshaw

4.0 out of 5 stars A great caper movie! April 6, 2000
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie November 26, 1999
Format:DVD
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!

Stealing the Rembrandt was just for practice. Ginny Barker (Catherine Zeta-Jones) who worked for Waverly Security had a much larger goal in mind robbing the International Clearance Bank during the Millenium Celebratrion on New Year's Eve in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but she needed help. She had been planning this event for a few years ... Hector Cruz (Will Patton) head of security had noticed she had no friends. She had no social life. She worked long hours doing statistical calculations and creating computer graphics examining all angles of the rooms and items her company insured and protected. He worried about her. She convinced Hector to let her attempt to catch and bring to justice the highly successful thief: McDougall (Sean Connery). He was a handsome foxy older gentleman, a wealthy Scotsman who had no need for the money but was a thief for the challenge of it. He was in the gallery where the Rembrandt was showcased during its opening exhibit, he was the likliest suspect. Hector was worried because two agents had previously disappeared trying to apprehend McDougall but Gin Barker convinced him because she was a woman ... she could do it. Despite misgivings, he gave her the chance to try.

Sean Connery played the aging gray haired foxy thief to perfection. He lived in Scotland, in a castle on an isolated island. He thought he had everything ... until he met Gin Barker. She followed him about in London, and watched him wander into a computer company, where he managed to steal five chips easily worth a million dollars each. She was exhausted as she returned to her hotel room, only to discover her luggage missing. She was too tired to report it immediately, pealed off her clothes and and prepared for bed ... totally naked because her dressing gown was among the missing items.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enticed by Entrapment December 18, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE BLU RAY TRANSFER! August 19, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am only going to review the Blu Ray disc. The image quality is poor, most occasions it's blurred. Especially when the film starts I end up wondering why it gets blurred.
I had the same issue with Die Hard 1 and 2 and In the Line Of Fire. Why do I get the feeling the they just transferring the image from dvd to Blu Ray or using some type of Noise Reduction which actually worsens the picture quality,
