5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic..., 7 May 2006
This review is from: The Sting (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
"The sting" (1973) might be an old film, but I think it is sensible to say that, for all practical purposes, it is new for those who haven't watched it before. That was my case, and it might be yours :)

The story is set in the thirties, and it is nothing less than excellent, good enough to keep you at the edge of your sit. Hooker (Robert Redford) and Luther (Robert Earl Jones) are con artists that steal from the wrong person, a crook that works for a big time mobster, Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). Lonnegan doesn't take that kindly, and sends his goons to kill the conmen. Luther dies, but Hooker survives, and from that moment onwards has only two purposes: stay alive, and take revenge. Of course, Hooker will not be alone, as he will have the help of Gondorff (Paul Newman), another con artist and one of Luther's old friends.

All in all, I firmly believe that this film is a timeless classic you shouldn't miss. Directed by George Roy Hill and with a superb cast, "The sting" is the kind of movie that surprises you till the very end. Highly recommended!
