3/4 

Adapted from Elmore Leonard's novel of the same name, Out of Sight tells the love story of a chronic bank robber Jack Foley (George Clooney) and tough FBI agent Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez) who should in all practicality hate each other but instead find themselves uncontrollably drawn to one another. A flawless story line with interesting characters, Out of Sight is a smoothly directed by Steven Soderburg. The pace of the film, the music, the freeze-shots, all of them make this film to be very stylish and Clooney and Lopez have great chemistry. The explosive Dennis Farina, Don Cheadle, burly Ving Rhames, Luis Guzman, Steve Zahn and Albert Brooks also give good performances.

The romantic cat-and-mouse isn't always as believable as the shootout and chase scenes, but it does inject a level of humor and fun into what is otherwise a competent and effective thriller. George Clooney has never been more charismatic, which works to the film's favor, as he is playing a sometimes unlikable character.

Fun caper. Pretty clever, at times. The cast makes the movie.

A cool movie using sex appeal and not just sex.

Steven Soderbergh's relentlessly witty and sexy caper "Out of Sight" benefits tremendously from one of the all-time great romantic pairings in the form of George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. These two actors are simply smoldering together and their chemistry is remarkably effective at drawing audiences into becoming engaged with the various situations and misadventures that their characters find themselves in.
It helps that they also have an amiable ensemble cast to interact with that not includes Ving Rhames, Dennis Farina, Don Cheadle, Albert Brooks, Steve Zahn, and Catherine Keener but even all these smaller entertaining performances by Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson,Luis Guizman, and Nancy Allen.
Using such an impressive line-up to breathe life into a script with more ...

"Out Of Sight" by Yojimbo

A smooth talking bank robber develops an infatuation with the beautiful US Marshall who is tracking him. Out Of Sight is the film in which we saw the first glimpse of what George Clooney was capable of and is clearly where the seeds of the Ocean's franchise were sown. It's a smart and sassy romantic heist movie based on a novel by Elmore Leonard with one foot planted firmly in the golden age of Hollywood. Although rather far-fetched, the chemistry between Lopez and Clooney works particularly well, he exhibiting his trademark charm and she making a particularly smart and strong as well as sexy leading lady. The dialogue is witty, the characters highly likeable and the plot interesting without being overly convoluted; everything a caper movie should be, basically. It is guilty of racial ste...
