Following the theft of a highly-secured piece of artwork, an agent convinces her insurance agency employers to allow her to wriggle into the company of an aging but active master thief.

Sean Connery is a notorious thief who teams up with undercover insurance agent Catherine Zeta-Jones to rob a high-tech bank on the stroke of midnight when everyone else is ringing in the new millennium. But is she a goodie or a baddie? Does Connery know which? Do they trust each other? Does this film contain one minute that is actually engaging? The answer to that last question is a resounding 'no'.
'Entrapment' is drearily photographed, directed with no verve, the central pairing lacks chemistry, and the script is padded to the hilt with dull banter when it should be tight and focused on the robberies. Still, those scenes are lacking in invention anyway, and the numerous twists manage to arrive without causing a singe ripple.
