Storyline

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. Connery's burglar takes her on suspiciously and demands rigorous training before their first job together--stealing a highly-valued mask from a chichi party. Their deepening attraction and distrust could tear apart their partnership but the promise of a bigger prize (some eight billion odd dollars) by Zeta-Jones keeps the game interesting. Only, who's playing with whom? Written by Lordship <lordship@juno.com>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Ronald Bass' original screenplay contained numerous additional spectacular action sequences involving Mac, including a robbery taking place onboard a moving luxury train, but Fox balked when the initial budget for this script was estimated at over $130 million. The final film excised many of Bass' envisioned super-action scenes (keeping a handful for the theatrical release) and came in at a final budget of $70 million. See more »

Goofs

When Mac and Gin are standing on the top of the castle's tower it sometimes has a very low parapet (e. g. when Mac approaches Gin from behind or when he throws off the glass), sometimes it has a high embrasure ("I never come up here without dropping something off"); the position of Mac and Gin to each other changes likewise. In the first aerial shot from the helicopter, the castle doesn't seem to have a tower at all. See more »

Quotes

Mac: I don't like surprises.
Gin: Trust me, there won't be any.
Mac: Trust me, there always are surprises.

All I'm seeing is Catherine and the laser beams
15 March 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

That was the coolest part of the movie. I mean, I'm not a guy or anything, but I have to admit she does look sexy. I really enjoyed "Entrapment". It had high action and intensity. I saw the film over HBO, I showed my mom and she was in love as well. Although this is not my favorite Connery film, it's still worth a look. The love story wasn't really needed. But you'll deal. Over all, the film is good. It was well directed with some remarkable actors. And remember LASER BEAMS! If you don't like the film, you will definatly like LASER BEAMS! Hehe. I would recommend this to fans of Connery or Jones.

7/10
