The Score is
an old-fashion heist thriller that makes me not want it to end.
It's smart, clever, and tense.
It will keep you in suspense, watching
everything fall into place like clockwork.
The cast alone is worth the price, just
to watch the interplay between DeNiro and Norton. Brando added
just the right touch with his funny lines.
It's a classy film that builds right to
the suprising and satisfying ending.
Brando, DeNiro, Norton--the star power
alone should make this a great motion picture.
But actors without good lines is like a
morning without a sunrise--it just don't happen. A movie needs
a good script for good acting to take place-and there is good
acting here, bogged down by bad screenwriting, which is too bad.
The tension buildup is handled masterfully,
but to no avail.
Another heist film with no payoff.
is a finely tined piece of work; it's a classic heist movie from
above ground and below. I especially liked the masterminding
of the grand plan, leaving enough of the secret twists so that
when it plays out on the screen it leaves you wanting more.
It left me on the edge of my seat, and
was suspenseful and electrifying from beginning to end.
Possibly the best all-star cast that I've
seen assembled together; it's like a three-way tie in acting,
if you're keeping score.
