An insurance agent, Gin (played by Catherine Zeta-Jones) goes undercover to catch a world-renown jewel thief, Robert MacDougal (Sean Connery). They join forces to steal extremely valuable artifacts while learning to trust each other and not get caught during their high-tech heists.
Entrapment is entertaining and disappointing at the same time. Although I like both Connery and Zeta-Jones, I wouldn't ever think of putting them together as a couple. I'm glad that it's only subtle, though... While last year's Six Days, Seven Nights was barely good, the pairing of Harrison Ford and Anne Heche clearly felt awkward and wrong. But it was more played-up and blatant (plus i can't stand Heche and her... "values"). Maybe if it were Pierece Brosnan instead or someone younger, it'd be better, but there was little chemistry there in the romance department.
As far as content goes: language is the key worst element here. There were 2 "f" words, both used by Ving Rhames in non-sexual ways; 8 "s" words, and so on... The violence was kept to a minimum. Thankfully no blood/gore was in the film, and no sex scenes (although some were filmed and left out due to Connery worrying about the controversy over the large age difference). There is slight nudity, but it was reduced to Zeta-Jones' bare back and hip.
Overall, the movie is pretty good, however, due to the language, and above-mentioned complaints, i can't grant this film more than somewhere between 2 & a half and 3 stars. If you have any questions about the film before you see it, feel free to contact me.- John DiBiase, (reviewed: 5/1/99)
