Product Description

Amazon.ca

Out of Sight scored critical raves, but its title sums up the theatrical fate of Steven Soderbergh's coolly comic crime caper and misfit romance based on Elmore Leonard's novel. But this is the sort of buried treasure home video was created to rescue.

George Clooney comes into his own as a leading man in the role of inveterate bank robber Jack Foley. Incarcerated, he uses another inmate's prison break as a cover for his own escape. Waiting for him, according to plan, is his partner, Buddy (Ving Rhames). Also waiting for him, not according to plan, is federal agent Karen Sisco (the ravishing Jennifer Lopez). She finds herself disarmed in more ways than one when she is deposited in the getaway car's trunk with Jack. But that doesn't stop her from joining the task force created to capture him, while he plans "one last heist."

Out of Sight is a rich, entertaining film, stylish without being showy, faithful to the integrity of Leonard's potent dialogue and quirky characters, and seamlessly acted by a dream ensemble. Standouts include Albert Brooks as convicted insider trader Richard Ripley, who while in prison brags to the wrong people that he has $5 million in uncut diamonds hidden in his house; Don Cheadle as Maurice (don't call him "Snoopy") Miller, with whom Jack warily teams up to steal said diamonds; Dennis Farina as Karen's protective father (his idea of a birthday gift is a Sig-Hauer .38); and, in unbilled cameos, Michael Keaton, reprising his Jackie Brown role as FBI agent Ray Nicolet, and Samuel L. Jackson.

If you liked Get Shorty and Jackie Brown, you'll find this, well, Out of Sight. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars A Smart 'n' Sexy Crime Thriller with A Brain Feb. 3 2004
By Cubist
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sly, Intelligent Caper Film Dec 1 2003
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 6 out of 10 June 2 2003
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top ten movies of all time... May 18 2003
Format:DVD
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.
