Catch this One,
This review is from: Catch Me If You Can (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
Catch Me If You Can is a terrific movie with a great cast. The movie is fun and light. It's nothing that should be taken too seriously.
Leonardo DiCaprio is excellent as Frank, and definitely puts himself into the class of serious good actors. He hasn't been in a movie with such wide acclaim since Titanic, and this is definitely a movie that will enhance his career. Tom Hanks is entertaining as the detective, hot on Frank's tale. His accent may be extremely fake, but it makes for quite humorous exchanges.
The pace of the movie is quick and non stop. The directing is smooth and done with professionalism. Some may see the movie as a disgrace to the criminal system, but I see it totally differently. It's great to see Frank put his skills to good use. I personally do not see anything wrong with that.
Catch Me If You Can is a tremendous film that finally gives Steven Spielberg a chance to direct without all the focus being on him. 5 Stars
