Great direction from Steven Soderbergh, the movie that showed us that Mr.Clooney was more than that handsome guy from "ER" or that guy in the horrible Batman movie. Clooney had that Cary Grant swagger and charm in this great role.

At the end of the day, Out of Sight is a common heist film, but its nonlinear storytelling, great performances, and good direction, elevate it above the genre it is a part of. From the very beginning, it has you hooked and does not let goAt the end of the day, Out of Sight is a common heist film, but its nonlinear storytelling, great performances, and good direction, elevate it above the genre it is a part of. From the very beginning, it has you hooked and does not let go until the end. George Clooney is great in the lead role as expected. Jennifer Lopez, who I had never seen act before, also does a good job at doing what she does best; being sexy. Her acting is also good. Ving Rhames and Don Cheadle also have very good supporting turns here. I am not a huge fan of Steven Soderbergh usually, but he does very well here in the director's chair and manages to craft a very entertaining romantic crime film and make the romance feel authentic and the crime element thrilling and exciting. In addition, the comedy element was good. It was not gut busting laugh after gut busting laugh, but it was used sparingly and effectively to lighten up the mood. Overall, Out of Sight is a good, entertaining film that feels like more than your regular old heist film. Expand

With a witty script, slickly-directed action set pieces, and a fine central performance, "Out Of Sight" competently elevates itself above the common crime-drama rabble.

Out of Sight is a decent crime love story. The main attraction here is the sizzling chemistry between Clooney and Lopez. However, the film does have some inefficient elements, such as the useless cameo from Micheal Keaton. Overall, Out ofOut of Sight is a decent crime love story.

Une comédie policière qui n'en finit pas et pour cause : il ne s'y passe quasiment rien... il faut dire qu'on a délayé sur deux plombes le peu de matière qui fait office de scénario et qui suffirait à grand-peine à meubler la moitié.

Une comédie policière qui n'en finit pas et pour cause : il ne s'y passe quasiment rien... il faut dire qu'on a délayé sur deux plombes le peu de matière qui fait office de scénario et qui suffirait à grand-peine à meubler la moitié.

La partie comédie est quant à elle aussi désolante qu'énervante par sa bêtise omniprésente : ça se croit malin, ça fanfaronne, ça fait des clins d'oeil gros comme ça mais ça pédale dans la semoule lamentablement. Monsieur What Else en est également responsable, clown raté à l'insu de son plein gré et gravure de mode pour un fabricant d'espresso, il pourrait aussi bien se reconvertir dans les pubs pour dentifrice.

Mademoiselle Lopez est presque aussi mauvaise actrice que chanteuse (ce qui est déjà assez inquiétant comme ça) et se maintient plus ou moins au sous-niveau de l'autre branque et de ce film dont l'imbécillité semble hors d'atteinte, là tout en bas, non plus bas encore...

Bref, une grosse merdasse sans intérêt aucun, même au recyclage.
