Consensus: A poorly developed plot weighs down any potential chemistry between the movie's leads.

A movie with a preposterous plot, exotic locations, absurd action sequences, and so much chemistry between attractive actors that we don't care.

New York Magazine/Vulture

Connery and Zeta-Jones not only look great together, they work well together, too.

Heist film with reliable plot. Teens OK.

As far as heist films are concerned, Entrapment is often overlooked and it's no surprise as to why. The film has a mood of overbearing cliches thats been… More

Mac: Rule number one: never carry a gun. If you carry a gun you may be tempted to use it. Rule number two: never trust a naked woman. While describing this… More

A dreary high-tech heist movie. The stars may be British but the wealth of extraneous travelogue details (castles, stately homes and red telephone boxes in the… More
