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

Pudu Station, where the protagonists meet at the end, is in fact Bukit Jalil Station, with all of the signs changed. Bukit Jalil is a much more attractive station than Pudu, but too far from central Kuala Lumpur to be feasible for the plot. See more »

Goofs

Gin uses chewed gum to neutralize the pressure switch while stealing the mask. This would leave her DNA behind. Some would argue that she was setting up Mac and would not care, but she was unaware that Mac knew who she was at that time. Her leaving DNA would mark her as careless and tip him off. See more »

Quotes

Mac: You know what they say about fear. The only remedy is to cut off the head.

Alternate Versions

The British Board of Film Classification state that "substitutions" were made before a 12 certificate could be awarded. The edits were to change the line "Sit the fuck down" to "Sit your butt down". The DVD subtitles contain the original line, and the Australian DVD uses the same cut master. The cuts were waived for the 2007 DVD release. See more »

The characters carry this film
7 September 2003 | by perfectbondSee all my reviews

The best aspect of Entrapment is the wonderful understated romance between Sean Connery's "Mac" and Catherine Zeta-Jones' "Gin." I thought this was far more moving than many of the swoony full-blown love affairs I've seen in other movies. Zeta-Jones is very glamorous and got to model a lot of swanky clothes. Connery is weary and reserved as befitting his age and that made the May-November romance all the more poignant. Ving Rhames again was the street wise tough, a role he has done many times before. The action sequences while quite good are not as exciting or suspenseful as in other movies of this type (ie. The Thomas Crown Affair). Still I enjoyed this movie thanks mostly to the the chemistry and as I said understated romance between Mac and Gin. Recommended, 7.5/10.
