Product Description

Product Description

Professional thief Nick Wells (Robert De Niro) is considering giving up his life of crime when his old fence Max Baron (Marlon Brando) asks him to help steal a priceless sceptre from the city customs house. Nick agrees, treating it as the 'one last job' which will pay for his retirement, but immediately has misgivings when he realises that he will have to work alongside Jackie Teller (Edward Norton), a cocksure young man who has inside access to the customs house. Together the pair design the perfect heist, making sure they have considered every possible angle; but come the night of the robbery, trouble arrives from the most unexpected direction.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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 reasonable heist movie, old school but perfectly watchable. No triple or quadruple cross here.
Starts with a scene setter and a bit of pencil sketch background, but no great attempt at characterisation. No hint at motivation, no history for any character. DeNiro is the cautious old timer, Bassett his air hostess girlfriend, Norton the cocky new guy and Brando the fixer in debt to a mobster. Contrary to what a lot of reviewers say DeNiro is not 'tempted back' for one last job. Rather he is tempted to break his own rules for a job that will let him retire.
Right if you have read this far, you can start half way through the film and miss the very slow preamble to the action with no detriment to your enjoyment. The acting is so so, Norton being the best, Brando dialling it in, possibly in response to getting his lines by text. Not a great dramatic part - he owes money he is in trouble, but he conveys no great sense of jeopardy. I think other reviewers are in awe of what he used to be, rather than what he turns in here.

In summary it is watchable (once) but don't pay a lot to do so.

This is probably not one of Robert De Niro's better known films - but it should be because it is an excellent crime thriller. Both he and Edward Norton give great performances, ably supported by Marlon Brando and Angela Basset. I would definitely recommend this movie - it is an engaging watch!
