Product Description

Product Description

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.

Cinematic adaptations of books are almost always inferior because so much has to be cut out or changed to fit into a two-hour film. However, Elmore Leonard's books are tailor-made for movie adaptations because they are very visual and almost entirely dialogue and character-driven -- ideal for the screenplay format. Out of Sight is one of those rare movies that is actually better than the book.
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.

Stephen Soderbergh has a knack for making quirky films and Out of Sight is no exception. This is a caper film in the most basic sense. The quirky thing is that the film relies less on action than on character development. This is a good thing in today's prepackaged world of formula filmmaking.
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.

Okay film. [...]Anyway, back to the movie...I was harsh on George Clooney when he had an ill performance in Batman and Robin. Since He made Out of Sight, Perfect Storm, From Dawn to Dusk, and Ocean's Eleven, George Clooney did what Will Smith could never do, the transformation of a tv star into a movie star. I hope he will choose more roles to help him to reach his potential, since I believe he will hit it big with the right roles. Other than that, Jennifer Lopez, as usual, is resplendent but wears off quickly since she only has the beauty of a face and body. If the audience was more than be fascinated about the chemistry between the two couple, the movie is basically flat. A gap here and there comes up. For example, [...] involve Michael Keaton in the movie since his role had absolutely nothing to do with the story, somewhat yeah contributes to the story but basically in a pointless way. Almost an all star cast here. Soderbergh's reason why he won the best picture for Traffic is because his style improved every film he did. From Sex, Lies, and Videotapes to Out of Sight to The Limey to Traffic, you can see how he experimented the style, what works and what doesn't work. This is an absolutely remarkable observation, granting the fact that he is a perfectionist. I absolutely love Soderberg's style in the film, but it seemed very young of maturity. [...]That is why I have this film a 6 because it looked great with a flat story. Samuel Jackson's cameo elevated the movie. Without that, there is no good ending for this one.

One of the top ten movies of all time, Out Of Sight starts out with George Clooney coming out a his job interview that went bad which you don't find out actually until the middle of the film because of flash backs. Anyway on we go Jack Foley (George Clooney) then walks across the street and with no plan, no gun, no nothing but his quick mouth and mind robs a bank or at least almost does until he gets to his car and it won't start. So once busted by the cops only seems right that he is thrown in jail but not not for long because Foley again is a quick talker and thinker and finds two people who are breaking out and sets up his own plan to get out which is seperate from there's. This plan of his now is actually quite genius. So he tells a security guard that he knows who's busting out and to meet him in the chapel before lock down which is when he busts out and meets Jennifer Lopez who deliveres the best performance of her whole acting career and should of been nominated for a golden globe or something. Now J.Lo is known as Karen Sisco a Federal Marshal in this film and is known to like the cowboy cop type who cheats on his wife as her dad (Dennis Leary) likes to say who is also a cop. Now this is just where all the fun begins, Jack is breaking out and he fools all of the security guards but not Karen who is there checking out a case concerning one of the prisoners. So not being fooled doesn't make a difference for Jack already thought of this before because he has a car waiting for him with Ving Rhames playing his best friend Buddy and throws her in the back of trunk with Jack who starts trying to pull pick up line after pick up line on her while in the trunk with her which doesn't work out at first but slowly and surely after a while Karen breaks down and starts laughing with him.Read more ›
