Sean Connery plays a master thief thought to be long retired, while Catherine Zeta-Jones is his foil, a hotshot insurance investigator assigned to his case. They both have a little something to hold over each other's heads, until it turns out that Zeta-Jones is a professional art thief herself and is playing on both sides of the fence. At first they eye each other with mutual distrust until they team up for a job, which goes off without a hitch. Inevitably their prickly relationship begins to thaw somewhat, and the two become attracted to each other as they plan out the massive Y2K bank scam that is the movie's climax (complete with sequel-ready ending). Entrapment plays somewhat like a '70s caper movie revamped for the gadget-happy high-tech '90s. The plot takes a few too many labored twists and turns, and the chemistry between the two leads is nearly nonexistent, though both carry on gamely in their parts. On the other hand, there is some genuine suspense in many scenes as they go about their business, dripping with whiz-bang burglary devices. Zeta-Jones, of course, is drop-dead gorgeous, and Connery is as reliable as always in his role. The fairly flat editing and direction tends to drag the film down somewhat, but fans of caper movies, high-tech thrillers, and the two leads should find plenty to like in this film. --Jerry Renshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Zeta is actually an insurance detective, Virginia Baker trying to find, the person responsible for a couple of burglary crimes in the area.
She suspects Mack (Sean Connery aka Robert MacDougal) is the person behind it, but rather than try to bring him in, she decides to get the man's confidence, and convinces him to try to pull of a big heist thus implicating Mac some more and
getting the evidence she needs to put him behind bars for a long time.
Mack is not an idiot, and he distrusts her from their very first meeting.
By the end of the film, one of the film will have pulled a great heist while the other
will either be in jail for a long time or worse. Their 2 contrasting styles in the movie, and their styles in pulling of different heists in the movie is really fun to watch.
The acting and special effects and stunts are also great including the culminating
climatic scene near the end where Mac and Virginia plot their big escape after
There are some problems with the film however. Virginia is young and naive and
she takes the lies and garbage that Mac says at face value. Mac is not even a good
liar yet Virginia's character is dumb enough to believe this old thief'ss lies.
Now on to the dvd itself:
The DVD is very well done and contains a great
number of features:
* Deleted scenes
The deleted scenes in the movie are actually quite good, in fact, I think they were alot better than a couple of the scenes in the finished draft of the movie.Read more ›
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.

Love these 2 actors, I wanted to see how they performed together. I was not disappointed. As a former gymnast, I was intrigued with Catherine's agility. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Lynda
Although the movie is older, Sean Connery was long in the tooth and showing his imperious persona even then. Catherine was a visual delight.Published on Oct. 29 2013 by Chris White
