Product Description

Big screen adaptation of the Elmore Leonard crime novel. Bank robber Jack Foley (George Clooney) is forced to kidnap federal agent Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez) while breaking out of prison. The two feel a strong sexual attraction for each other, but Karen still takes the opportunity to escape when it arises. Jack teams up with his old partner, Buddy (Ving Rhames), and they plan one last job together in Detroit. Intending to rob the mansion of millionaire Richard Ripley (Albert Brooks), the duo still have Karen on their tail, and also face competition from ex-con Glenn Michaels (Steve Zahn) and the psychopathic Maurice 'Snoopy' Miller (Don Cheadle).

From Amazon.co.uk

Out of Sight was one of the best movies of 1998 but ironically this superior crime comedy was a box-office disappointment. Fortunately the movie can enjoy a long life on home video and DVD, where it can be savoured by anyone who missed its original release. Making one of his strongest films since his 1989 debut Sex, Lies, and Videotape and his recent hit Erin Brockovich, director Steven Soderbergh pays tribute to the signature wit and intricacy of Elmore Leonard's novel, brilliantly adapted by Scott Frank, the gifted screenwriter who previously adapted Leonard's Get Shorty. The movie is primarily a showcase for the talent and chemistry of George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez, respectively playing a career bank robber who has escaped from jail and the federal agent who falls for his charms while tracking him down. Soderbergh directs with confident visual flair, shifting timelines (à la Pulp Fiction) to weave together subplots and maintain vivid focus on Leonard's splendid characters and smooth-as-silk dialogue. While the sexy repartée between Clooney and Lopez recalls the vintage interplay of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Ving Rhames and Steve Zahn add ample comic relief as Clooney's accomplices. Dennis Farina is memorable as Lopez's father and Albert Brooks is almost unrecognisable as a Wall Street crook whose mansion--and a cache of uncut diamonds--provides the setting for the film's climactic caper. As orchestrated by Soderbergh, the film offers a feast of plot twists and surprises but it never loses track of its delightful characters and the clever wit that brings them so vividly to life. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I saw this film when it came out on video because a friend of mine highly recommended it and justly so! It was something I was not expecting especially from Clooney and Lopez. The story moves between comdey, romance and action beautifully leaving you a little confused as to which catergory of movies you would place it in. The dirctor is superb as he skips around time periods but yet never confusing you as to what is going on. The actors performances truly complement eachother and you can see that Miss Lopez actually doea have some talent. I would definitely advise anyone to rent this whether you are looking for a comedy, love story or a thriller because it really doesn't disappoint!

Format: DVD
George Clooney stars with Jennifer Lopez in this excellent and entertaining romantic heist movie, unfortunately much overlooked and poorly promoted on its theatrical release. Based on the novel by Elmore Leonard and superbly and subtly directed by Steven Soderbergh. George Clooney (as bank robber Jack Foley) and Jennifer Lopez (as Federal Marshall Karen Sisco) light up the screen with previously unparalleled sexual chemistry in the movie that finally launched their big screen careers to the A list, after previous false starts (such as The Peacemaker and The Money Train respectively). Also boasting a very impressive supporting cast that includes Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Steve Zahn, Albert Brooks, Dennis Farina (as Jennifer Lopez father) and great cameos from Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson, movies really don't get much better than this.
Principally this is the story of serial bank robber Jack Foley and Federal Marshall Karen Sisco, on opposite sides of the law but inescapably attracted to each other. When Jack escapes from prison aided by his friend Buddy (Rhames) he ends up in the trunk of a car with the kidnapped Karen Sisco (Lopez) after she nearly foils the prison break. However, thanks to their inept friend Glenn Michaels (Zahn), Karen escapes and Jack and Buddy have to go on the run. Meanwhile, Karen Sisco is hot on Jack's trail in more ways than one in this brilliantly played, beautifully written, excellently directed movie. This has everything I love about movies, a great story, great cast and great style. Truly unmissable and well worthy of five stars.

I believe Out of Sight was savagely ignored by the critics and that this Soderbergh flick was a sign of things to come (erin brokovich and traffic). Jennifer Lopez is sensational in her first bigshot film, but she does not overplay her role at all, she is subtle, sophisticated and sexy like her usual Latino self. George Clooney plays the convoluted criminal to perfection and is really establishing his position with the all-time greats after the woeful Batman and Robin. But it wasnt the leads that totally won me over, the supporting roles and cameos really put this film into another class: Don Cheadle played the sinister criminal with a professional edge while Steve Zahn was incredibly funny as the goofy nobody. Then there was the invincible Ving Rhames, Jack Foley's sidekick and all-round badass! Thats right, the story, the twists, the execution, characterisation, romance and tension were all world class.
A beautifully sophisticated indie flick from the up-and-coming indie director himself, Steven Soderbergh.

Format: Blu-ray
For some bizarre reason this 1997 movie was a flop at the box office. Apparetnly it pulled the cash in after its release on video and dvd; and rightly so. George Clooney finally gets a decent movie role here, in this successful adaptation of an Elmore Leonard novel(Get Shorty). Instead of playing yet another comic book character as he did in From Dusk Till Dawn and Batman & Robin, Clooney plays one of those small-time criminals who is savvy enough to reach behind and grab the arm of someone with a gun while he is sitting in a bathtub with his eyes closed but is still incompetent enough to botch a bank robbery by flooding the engine of his car.

Anyhoo, the joys of this film include a wide array of mostly streetwise characters, refreshingly smart dialogue, and a certain chemistry between Clooney and Jennifer Lopez, who discuss cinema (the movie Network) and other topics while locked in the trunk of a car.

The director is Steven Soderbergh, who cashes in on the promise he showed a decade ago with his legendary debut, Sex, Lies, and Videotape. The soundtrack by David Holmes is brilliant. The editing is masterful. Wholeheartedly recommended.

I saw this film at the cinema because I had read the book and I was a fan of Elmore Leonard's work. Although it strays from it's source material it is without a doubt one of the best movies of the last few years. This film is amazingly well directed by Soderbergh, who knows exactly how to pace the action and romance and gets the most from his great cast. There's real chemistry from the two leads and they're given amazing support from the likes of Don Cheadle, Ving Rhames and Dennis Farina. A special mention has to go to Steve Zahn as an ex-con who steals every scene he's in. With a host of DVD-only extras this isn't just a great movie but a great DVD as well.

What really made this cool though was the fractured chemistry between Lopez and Clooney. They were a good on-screen duo. What made it good was the he was an escaped con, while she was a U.S. Marshall, I guess the forbidden relationship made it cool. The acting was good, I think George Clooney is a good actor, but I don't care for Jennifer Lopez movies, though she did a good job in this and Selena.

There was also the way the cities were shot, how Lompoc was a yellow shade, Miami was a reddish shade, and Detroit was in blue, I thought that was cool, much like in Traffic. So in conclusion, the acting was good, the plot was o-kay, the setting was good, and the chemistry between the characters was excellent.
