Always amazed Al did not win an Oscar for this brilliant portrayal.

Superb direction and great casting - that feeling of being stuck right there with them in bank, dripping sweat - you don't just feel like you're watching a movie, you're experiencing it. This is a classic thriller in the best sense of the word and anyone who likes a tightly-woven story should be interested in it.

A film entirely conceived around a small, faulty bank robbery that has bigger repercussions on the outside. The unfolding character motives are effective and the pacing is great. This is a tight and well crafted heist.

This film was based on a true event, and after watching it in the 70s, I found it hard to believe. However, 'the gang that couldn't rob straight', grabs you at the bungling beginning, holds you through the over wrought middle, then squeezes and drops you at the end. Good film, Al Pacino in fine form.

Lumet creates a bank robbery film that uses the robbery as a jumping off point for some interesting character investigation. Pacino and Cazale give fantastic performances as robbers who let their emotions escape under pressure and there are some nice character actors in supporting performances as some of the hostages.

It's Pacino at his peak. What more needs to be said?

Ten minutes into the movie, I knew it had potential to become one of my favorite movies. All it had to do was keep its focus. I'm happy to say that it managed to do that... and more. Unlike most movies out there, it's right to the point and each scene has something to offer. It's about two hours long but it didn't feel like it. Everyone knows Al Pacino due to his performance in "Scarface." I think he's so much better here; not to mention this movie is much better than "Scarface." This is the kind of movie I'll remember vividly twenty or thirty years from now.

Pacino is definitely different in this one. It does drag for a while but there are some funny parts. I just didn?t' see a whole lot of good in this movie. Maybe you will?
