May-December Relationship with Dozens of Twists
Verified purchase
If you like good looking people with sexual tension between them, then you'll love Entrapment. Throughout the movie we are led through a labyrinth of who's after whom twists and turns. And to the very end, it's unclear who the good guy is and who the bad guy is...or, maybe, no one is good. What we have here is two art thieves vying with each other as to which one if the better thief. Zeta-Jones (the May) and Connery (the December) are a perfect match even though there is at least a century age difference...eh, OK, not a century...but close.

Great fun and a well-deserved 5 stars

I very rarely buy movies - if any, then a nature documentary. But, I've now watched Entrapment 4 times, and I love it as much now as ever. Oscar material it isn't, but it's well-done and outstanding for what it is. The plot is vaguely along the lines of "The Great Train Robbery" (also starring Sean Connery) - but so much better than his earlier movie. The action takes place during the weeks before and during the turn of the millenium (1999), and involves a few great heists.

Entrapment is great fun: a flight of fantasy for sure; including a few "missions impossible" with enough suspense to keep your heart-rate up; a hint or two of 007 (with high-tech gadgetry, and some chase scenes), except with more well-paced action over-all; a touching, evolving romance between Mac (Connery) and Gin (Catherine Zeta-Jones), despite their quite different ages and screen personalities. It is serious drama for the most part, but with some lighter moments now and then as well. It never becomes "dark" or melodramatic. The acting is excellent, and the dialog believable. The musical score is closely tied to the drama, and appropriate. And, throw in a few surprises at the end. In sum, good entertainment.

Ya know, this movie is still pretty darn good. Katherine Zeta Jones can be a bit whiny at times, but this movie still has a fresh, timeless feel. Great visual photography, plot, and settings. You feel good after watching this movie. They just don't make movies this good anymore.

Connery Rules
Verified purchase
Great movie especially if you are a fan of Connery and Jones. Its not perfect but films never are and I always put high standards on my buddy Connery. One thing I don't understand is why the extras from the DVD were not carried over to the Blu Ray disc namely the trailers and TV spots, deleted scenes with and without commentary and mini documentary feature. I also hope one day they put back in to the film the deleted scenes because it would make the film better and a bit easier to understand at the beginning. I could just strangle the director for doing that as well as anyone else who thought it was a good idea. What a wast not using the car chase.
The other scene is her breaking in to his hotel room to invite him to steal the mask by putting the magazine on his bed. Anyway its a good Connery film and as close to James Bond as you can get if he became a thief.

Great Addition to Anyone's Collection

Firstly, you have to go with the Widescreen format, there's just no better way to watch a movie. I purchased this DVD at a reasonable price, and upon receiving it, watched it immediately. I'd seen it in the theaters once previously. This is the type of movie, though, that you enjoy seeing in your home. It's not bursting at the seams with special effects, it's just a great movie.
I have to say that "The Rock" is probably a more thrilling movie, and slightly less typical than "Entrapment". This film, while being intriguing and entertaining, throws back to Connery as James Bond. His sophisticated style and wit are humorous and convincing in this action flick. However, similar to "The Rock", I absolutley feel that the cast in "Entrapment" is solid. It was filmed wonderfully, and there are some sultry scenes with Catherine Zeta Jones. And some of the landscapes, and open scenes are just amazing. Picturesque views of Connery's character's house, inside and out, are a definite highlight.
All-in-all, there are only a few movies I can put on when a group of friends come over for a movie night, nevermind something that I'm interested in - but "Entrapment" really fits the bill.

A great caper movie!

I saw this on opening night in the theater and I had a great time. I knew, of course, that it wasn't going to win any awards, but I really had a lot of fun watching it, which is the best judge of a movie's quality- at least in my mind.
Sean Connery is, of course, a classic. He makes bad movies good and good movies better. Catherine Zeta-Jones is simply the most beautiful actress in Hollywood today (nice to see a girl with a full-figure, as opposed to, say, Gweynth Paltrow). The supporting cast is interesting as well, but Ving Rhames must be sick of playing the heavy.
As for the film itself, the plot is fairly entertaining, with crosses and double-crosses until the last reel. The highlights here (and the reason I enjoy the film) are, of course, the theft sequences, and they are beautifully directed and edited. Even if you hate the film, the mask-heist will grab you.
The new DVD special-edition is a marked improvement over the old one- the new anamorphic transfer is flawless and the extras (while still a bit slim) are good. I especially enjoyed the director's dry humor on the commentary track.
Overall, this is a fun blockbuster that won't really make you think too much, and it is a good way to spend a few hours.

Very entertaining.
Verified purchase
Overworked and overreached for amazement there at the last especially, but all in all just as entertaining as I remember it from the time it first came out. My wife and I watched it again because she had just come back from Scotland and I asked her if she had gone to Malcolm's Castle. She frowned and asked why. I explained that it was the castle where Entrapment was filmed. Of course she corrected me that it was Duart's Castle, on the Isle of Mull. Rita-Jones was in her prime when this was made and it's easy to see why Michael Douglas lost his head for her.

Mostly great!

Overall this is a great movie. There were a few hokey premises, but they weren't so bad as to ruin the movie. Most of all, you get Sean Connery and a very sexy Katherine Zeta-Jones. Some of the visual elements were breath-taking. Great sets and on-location shots.
