Never get tired of watching this movie. Pierce Brosnan is excellent as a rich art lover. Video and Audio are excellent quality. No bonus discs with it, just the one Blu-Ray disc. There aren't even any special features on the main disc, which was a disappointment. Hence the 3 stars. If there was something extra with the movie, it would have been 5 stars.
I have been a huge fan of the original Thomas Crown Affair since I first saw it while in the military in 1969..... and bought this "re-make" because I heard so many good things about it. I must say that honestly there are good points in BOTH films. I never quite bought the fact that the original Crown had McQueen's character robbing a bank.... so stealing the "Monet" made much more sense to me. I also thought the story was improved upon in the new version and I was more satisfied by the challenge Bronsnan's character found in Russo's bluntness. On the other hand, the sumptuous music score by Michel LeGrand in the early film was superior to the weak, lackluster and frangmented score that Bill Conti created for the new one. I also think I preferred the sensuous and sexy elegance of the fire between McQueen and Dunaway to the overtly sweaty lust that Brosnan and Russo desparately share. HOWEVER.... I must say I did enjoy BOTH films and find each beautiful and entertaining in their own ways.
(...) The ART of the earlier version is a unique and compelling one and makes that film so fascinating to watch in widescreen!
