The Score

We watched a recording of The Score. This is one of those films that prove that just because you have a bunch of actors with marvelous reputations together in one film, it doesn't guarantee a great film. In this film, expert safecracker Robert De Niro does jobs found by his fence, Marlon Brando, and is set to do a job with up-and-coming hotshot Edward Norton.

With so many big names, I was expecting more, but was rewarded with an average movie that unlike some of my recent viewings was at least worth the time. Ultimately, I guess the setup of the robbery of the Montreal customs house was too well prepared for me to feel much tension. I also thought that Brando was wasted in an unimportant role that only seemed to be fleshed out so that the filmmakers could justify offering it to someone with his reputation.

I don't think this movie is worth going out of your way to see, but it is worth the time if you happen upon it. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 68.
