Making the Score
Original theatrical trailer
2,35:1 Aspect Ratio, 16:9 Widescreen version
Dolby Digital 5.1
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 DisneySee all Product Description

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
