Meet Jack Foley (George Clooney), a smooth criminal who bends the law and is determined to make one last heist. Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez) is a U.S. Marshal who chooses all the right moves…and all the wrong guys. Now they’re willing to risk it all to find out if there’s more between them than just the law. Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh, Out of Sight is “a sly, sexy, vastly entertaining film” (Variety).
Out of Sight was one of the best movies of 1998, but ironically this superior crime comedy was a box-office disappointment. Fortunately the movie can enjoy a long life on home video, where it can be savored by anyone who missed its original release. Making his best film since 1989's sex, lies, and videotape, director Steven Soderbergh pays tribute to the signature wit and intricacy of Elmore Leonard's novel, brilliantly adapted by Scott Frank, the gifted screenwriter who previously adapted Leonard's Get Shorty. The movie's a prime showcase for the talent and chemistry of George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez, respectively playing a career bank robber who's escaped from jail and the federal agent who falls for his charms while tracking him down. Soderbergh directs with confident visual flair, shifting time- lines (à la Pulp Fiction) to weave together subplots and maintain vivid focus on Leonard's splendid characters and smooth-as-silk dialogue. While the sexy repartée between Clooney and Lopez recalls the vintage interplay of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Ving Rhames and Steve Zahn add ample comic relief as Clooney's accomplices. Dennis Farina is memorable as Lopez's father, and Albert Brooks is almost unrecognizable as a Wall Street crook whose mansion--and a cache of uncut diamonds--provides the setting for the film's climactic caper. As orchestrated by Soderbergh, the film offers a feast of plot twists and surprises, but it never loses track of its delightful characters and the clever wit that brings them so vividly to life. The Collector's Edition DVD includes commentary by Soderbergh, deleted scenes, production notes, theatrical trailers, and more. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Out of Sight is really a film about possibilities and the road not taken. What could have been. Jack Foley (George Clooney) is an ace bank robber who has one of the best introductions ever put on film as he quietly and politely robs a bank with nothing more than a smile and soothing voice. Clooney, with his movie star good looks and suave charm is perfectly cast as the smooth talking criminal. This may be his finest performance to date. His character meets Federal Marshall Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez) while breaking out of prison and the two hit it off immediately -- which is all the more impressive when one considers that their first meeting was spent in the cramped confines of a car trunk.
After lanquishing in obscurity for many years, Steven Soderbergh put himself back on the map with this smart, sexy and wonderfully stylish crime thriller that was ignored by audiences (due to lousy advertising and an even worse release date) but much beloved by critics. Fortunately, it has been re-discovered on video.
This movie just chugs along with such effortless ease and self-confidence that it is hard not to like.Read more ›
Out of Sight employs a stellar cast headed by George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. Clooney plays Jack Foley the down on hios luck criminal who yearns for one more score. Lopez is the federal marshall who is both out to arrest him and is strangely attracted to him. There is a definite chemistry between the leads that makes the movie fun to watch and the cat and mouse is played to perfection.
Perhaps the greatest part of the film is its screenplay written by Scott Frank. Frank nails the Elmore Leonard dialogue and provides one of the better stories of the year.
This DVD offers a documentary on the making of the film featuring most of the principals, a commentary by Soderbergh and Frank and a good assortment of deleted scenes. Although this was not a major box success it is a solid feature that is worth a viewing or two.
