Storyline

Nick Wells, a professional criminal, decides to leave the business for good, since he nearly got caught on his last job. His plan is to live in peace with his girl Diane, running his Montreal jazz club. Soon afterward, Max, his good friend and financial partner, comes along with an offer Nick can't refuse: A historical and priceless French scepter has been discovered while being smuggled into the country. It is now under massive surveillance in the Montreal Customs House, and soon to be returned to France. Nick has to team up with Max's man inside, the young, talented and aggressive thief Jack Teller to get the precious item. Only one question remains: Who will trick whom out of their share?

Goofs

While casing the Customs House, Nick's GPS shows his location as W 33°26', N 29°32'. These Coordinates are are in the Eastern North Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, 820 nm W of the island of La Palma. According to GoogleMaps, the actual Coordinates of the Montreal Customs House at 1010 rue de la Gauchetière Est Montréal, QC H3B 2N2, Canada are approximately 45.498391n, 73.567382w. Also, the coordinates given are only accurate to within a mile. This is hardly good enough to pinpoint Nick's location on a map. See more »

Mastering suspense without violence
3 July 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I found The Score a very rare treat in the era of Kill Bill 2 and Die Hard 9. In The Score there is plenty of suspense but very little violence. If I explain this too much, I will spoil.

Except for lots of swear words, this is clearly PG-13, and provides a strong lesson in how to craft an action movie without a lot of explosions and gunfights. Plus: three generations of Method actors is a real treat, with Brando playful and seemingly content, DeNiro cool beyond cool, and Norton riffing away the whole movie. [Regarding DeNiro: what's cooler than a) managing a sleek jazz club, in b) sleek Montreal, with c) Angela Bassett as your sleek flight attendant girlfriend?!] Rent it soon >> it's a sleeper.
