From Amazon.co.uk

In the heist thriller The Score director Frank Oz partners Robert De Niro with hotshot upstart Edward Norton and heavyweight legend Marlon Brando. De Niro plays a weary thief tempted by wily old associate Brando into, yes, one last job--a plan to steal a priceless sceptre from Montreal's Customs House. You'd have to be determinedly grumpy not to get half a kick out of Brando, De Niro and Norton--more than holding his own--coolly bouncing off one another in a Method paradise. Brando may be enormous and breathing heavily with every move, but his technique is as agile as it ever was; he still seems spontaneously clever.

Oz doesn't have the most crackling visual style in the world: the film is far too smooth for tension and keeps tapping Howard Shore's music score to do most of the work in that department. The divine Angela Bassett is once again totally wasted in a 10-minute throwaway role as De Niro's girlfriend. The Score isn't anything new, and there isn't a single surprise, but if you're into this sort of thing you will respond to its polished familiarity. --Steve Wiecking, Amazon.com

On the DVD: The Score on DVD offers a limited but interesting set of special features, from the 12-minute making of featurette--concentrating on the most enjoyable aspect of the film, the actors--to additional footage which shows De Niro and Brando's love of improvisation. Frank Oz and cinematographer Rob Hahn provide an insight into the intricacies of filmmaking in their commentary. The Dolby Digital soundtrack enhances the silence between the dramatic crescendos, and the quality of the 2.35:1 ratio picture gives depth to the many shadows in which the characters move. Subtitles include English for the Hard of Hearing. --Nikki Disney

Aren't heist movies great? Warm and familiar like a comfy old armchair, they are one of the oldest and (if done well) most enjoyable film genres around. You can sit back at the movie theatre with your popcorn in one hand or at home in front of the TV with a beer, safe in the knowledge that some craggy, world weary old thief set on retirement will be persuaded to do one last job, with a rookie understudy whom he doesn't trust, on a job which you just know wont go as smoothly as planned.
The Score is no different in that respect in that it stars Robert De Niro as a craggy old world weary thief, persuaded to take on one last high risk job before retiring. Ed Norton plays the rookie understudy scamming his employers by posing as Brian, a man with a disability and learning difficulties. Of course Robert De Niro's character Nick, always works alone and doesn't trust anybody but he is persuaded by his camp bloated old fence, Max (Marlon Brando) to work with Jack (Ed Norton). You see Max (Brando) is in up to his eyeballs in gambling debts and is likely to be forcibly shuffled off this mortal coil unless he comes up with the money, Jack (Norton) is working on the inside and Nick (De Niro) is the only man with the knowledge and the skills to get the job done.
Like most heist movies it's a bit of a slow burn build up, it's all about building up the tension until showtime. Inevitably there are a few scares along the way and Director Frank Oz (yes that's right Yoda, or at least the voice of Yoda) does a decent job in building up the tension. Of course one of the great draws of this movie is Frank Oz's coup in getting Brando, De Niro and Norton all on screen at the same time in the same movie.

This is an absolutely excellent movie with some superb acting performed by both De Niro and Norton ( in particular ).

An excellent storyline with several plot twists, not least being the final one !!

The suspense builds throughout the film and at times will have you squeezing the arms of your seat.

A very clever plot line and you're never quite sure who has the upper hand until the very last scene.

Very, very recommended viewing.

I was drawn to this movie by the mixture of Bobby D, Edward Norton and the late Marlon Brando all sharing the screen, but in the end, I enjoyed it for a vastly different reason to the acting (which on all accounts apart from Norton's, was inexcusably poor.)

The way this film succeeds is strange.
It takes all the clichés of the heist movie:
1. The middle aged guy who wants to go straight but gets roped into doing "one last job" by his old friend/superior/boss/all 3 at once
2. The old friend/superior/boss/all 3 at once who is greatly uncharacterised that ropes the "one last job" guy into said job. Sub-plot about getting into debt with some dodgy mob types is usually included.
3. The cocky, volatile young gun.
4. The girlfriend of the "one last job" guy that's only there because if there were any more testerone in the film, dvd players all around the world would begin imploding.

And then it combines them all into the same picture, totally by the numbers, and the effect this gives is that you imagine the characters breaking the fourth wall and winking at you, letting you know that it's self-referentialist idiocy, which makes it all okay.

Because these 4 clichés are a cinematic legacy which you can't help but love, this film knowingly exacts each cliché PERFECTLY, leaving you with a smile on your face despite the fact you know this is in all likelihood the most unoriginal film ever made.
And through its complete and utter lack of originality, it almost becomes the exact opposite, and makes for a tongue in cheek thrill ride.

Bonus points for Edward Norton proving his versatility by playing basically 2 people at once.

A tense heist movie with twists and turns starring Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando, and a sensational performance by Edward Norton who could have been nominated for an Oscar that year. This is the only time all three appear in the same movie, although De Niro and Brando play the same character in different Godfather movies and decades apart in the script. In "The Score", Robert De Niro plays an expert burglar with expensive tastes, great responsibilities, and big plans, who only robs the very rich and`fences' his plunder outside of the USA. After pulling his last job and about to go into retirement, he's enticed into one last job by Brando's character (we've seen it over and over, but these actors make this well-worn, over-used situation believable) and they ramp up the tension as the planning and the final heist ensue, then as success is at hand... I won't leak any more about the plot, but this movie is well worth the watch. Bring lots of popcorn for his one, some masterful acting is going on here in a quick hour and a half. Also costarring Angela Bassett and Gary Farmer, with musical cameos by jazz greats Mose Allison and Cassandra Wilson. There is also an effective music score by Howard Shore. Very Definitely Recommended. Four and a half FASCINATING Stars! (Video Cassette and Amazon Prime movie, Time:1 hour and 24 minutes, Rated R)
