User Review

Good Little Movie

Rating: 8/10


Ah, 1998… Bill Clinton was still in the White House, the Gulf War had
no sequel, gas was under $2.00 a gallon, and a kinda-known actress was
in her pre-J. Lo/Jenny from the Block/Bennifer/media whore phase.

Back when she used to have a little (now she has a lot), Jennifer Lopez
was actually enjoyable in Steven Soderbergh's 'Out of Sight.' I saw
this in the theater when it came out and remember thinking it was one
of the better films I'd seen that year. I watched it again last night
on DVD, and I have to say that it still holds up. Clooney is finally
given a worthy vehicle, and he and Lopez have actual, undeniable
chemistry on the screen. The supporting players (especially the
incomparable Don Cheadle) are perfectly cast. Soderbergh effortlessly
knocks this one out of the park.

One critic gave the film two and a half out of four stars and claimed
'Out of Sight' was in need of a 'shot of adrenaline,' but I have no
idea where he's coming from. When you think of all the bad movies that
are released in any given year, you'd think you'd appreciate something
like this.
