“Poor Score”

ProA chance to see three of the best actors ever, tog...

ConsSee opinion.

The Score undoubtedly wins the unnecessary film award and deserves to be remembered only for bringing together the three best method actors of their generations, namely; Brando, De Niro and Norton. I call the film unnecessary, because why on earth do we need another crime/thriller movie with...

“ONE LAST JOB”

published 18/03/2005

ProWell made, good cast

ConsStory not new...

The score is a well-made but fairly typical Hollywood heist movie. It relies on a complex plot and the interaction of the characters to maintain your interest in the story rather than overblown action set pieces. What makes the film more than just average is the presence of three excellent actors...

Stories about great robberies can really go one of three ways: 1. Robbery goes off as planned – everybody lives happily ever after. 2. Robbery goes terribly wrong – nobody gets out alive. 3. Robbery goes partially wrong – everybody double-crosses everyone else. Scenario three is...

“Score is a result”

published 10/10/2001

Progood cast, well shot, entertaining

Consslow pace will deter some people, nothing new

A glance at the poster for the score and you instantly have something sold to you without even knowing what the film is about. The names De Niro, Norton and Brando as well as Angela Bassett should be enough to at least peak your interest. Not only that but it's directed by Yoda/Fozzy Bear himself...

ProDi Nero, Norton, Brando

ConsScript - Cheese

I recently read one review in the newspaper (not sating who wrote it but the paper was the London Evening Standard) that raised a few issues about the film. The impression from the article was that it was not very good, hat he actors were wasted and that the whole thing was a drab little affair...

Even though this film is watchable, it did somewhat lack in some of the thrills and spills that you might expect from the previews. In summary the film is about one final heist by old hand Robert de Nero, and a would be newcomer. Robert de Niro is persuaded to do just one last job (not an...

ConsMarlon Brando, and poor (overly neat) ending

The score features the expected class performances from DeNiro and Norton and the equally expected ham form Brando. Set against the background of the titled ‘Score’ this film is about the relationship between Norton’s character a very competent but risk taking thief who is out...

ProRobert Dinero, Marlon Brando, Plot

ConsCritics will Remain Critics

When you talk about a film that includes Robert Dinero and Marlon Brando you immideatly relate to a legendary product like The Godfather and then you’d expect this film to somewhat great, well its not, the score is a good viewable and entertaining movie but nothing it should’ve or could’ve been...

“Norton Shines in The Score”

published 12/08/2005

ProDeNiro and Norton

ConsCan't think of any

The Score has a great ensemble cast. Robert DeNiro, Edward Norton, Marlon Brando, and Angela Basset. Brando and Basset aren't in much of the movie, just a scene here and there. DeNiro and Norton are in all most all of the movie. DeNiro is a thief. When the movie starts he is breaking into a safe...

Product Information : The Score (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Every thief dreams of the big heist that will allow him to leave the business of crime behind. Every thief except Nick (Robert De Niro), a cool, methodical safecracker who never takes on long-shot jobs until his longtime partner, Max (Marlon Brando), offers him the big score--to filch a priceless scepter from the Montreal customs house. Wary about the job, Nick and the hotheaded customs house insider, Jackie (Edward Norton), begin to dissect the elaborate details of entering the building, avoiding the security measures, blowing the safe, and escaping with the scepter. But as in every thrilling crime caper, plans go awry. Skilled comic director Frank Oz is clearly comfortable working with the best method actors from the past three generations. Brando's Max bursts with joyful cynicism, while De Niro is Brando's perfect foil, so collected that every smile seems like a revelation. Norton's Jackie is far more expressive, but it is Norton's smallest movements--holding a gaze a half beat too long--that hint at the secret motives pulsing beneath his skin. Smooth like the scotch Nick likes to drink, and swirling with tension, THE SCORE provides the real payoff to the audience.
