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.
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.Read more ›
I have to admit to a guilty pleasure on this one - I've always liked the wonderfully cheesy "Entrapment" - especially the slightly odd yet very convincing chemistry between the young and beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones and the old but still incredibly sexy Sean Connery. You genuinely feel that Connery fancies Jones and she likewise - and apparently that was the case. You can see that Connery actually likes and admires her and it gives the film a great dynamic - enjoying themselves rather than just grinning and bearing it.
Which is a shame, because I was hoping that this would be a decent buy on BLU RAY, but it isn't.
The principal reason is not the film itself (which is very entertaining), but the way it was filmed. There's a sort of filtered haze over at least 75% of the print (possibly hiding someone's age my dear?) that now looks even worse - accentuated by its transfer to the mercilessness of High Def. The picture isn't crap, but it's NOT 1080P DEFINED either - and it's absolutely NOT AN IMPROVEMENT over say a dirt-cheap DVD. "Entrapment" on BLU RAY looks murky and poorly executed most of the time - and for a film that was issued in 1999, that's just not good enough.
The Extra Feature is a commentary by Director Jon Amiel, but that's all (no making of, no interviews). Presentation is in Letterbox 16:9 (so it fills the full screen) and languages include French, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Dutch and English For The Hard-Of-Hearing.
I'd say hire this before you buy it. In a slew of badly transferred movies to this great, but sometimes frustrating format, this is yet another sloppy reissue.
One to avoid I'm afraid.
