|Edition:||Collector's Edition||Director:||Steven Soderbergh, Peter Andrews|
|Based on Elmore Leonard's famous crime novel, OUT OF SIGHT finds director Steven Soderbergh back in Hollywood after a brief return to the independent world with SCHIZOPOLIS and GRAY'S ANATOMY. A funny, hip, and vibrant action-drama, OUT OF SIGHT tells the story of the unlikely relationship that forms between an FBI agent and a career criminal. After Jack Foley (George Clooney) escapes from jail with the help of his partner, Buddy Bragg (Ving Rhames), he takes Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez), a sexy federal agent, hostage. Immediately sparks fly between the two. Eventually they let her go and leave Miami behind, heading directly for Detroit, where they plan to rob a former cellmate of theirs, a wealthy, white-collar criminal (Albert Brooks). When Karen finally locates Foley, a passionate encounter unfurls (edited ingeniously by Anne V. Coates, recalling Nicolas Roeg's classic DON'T LOOK NOW). As Foley zeroes in on his target, Karen must decide which side she's on. Soderbergh's film is a raucous ride through the criminal underworld, featuring spot-on performances by Clooney and Lopez. It's the supporting cast that makes OUT OF SIGHT so unforgettable, however; Rhames, Steve Zahn, Luis Guzman, and especially Don Cheadle deliver hysterical turns that keep the laughs coming as the tension continues to mount.|

Don't Worry JLo is Not THAT Bad in This One...
I was very surprised I liked this film. Pretty much all of Clooney's films I like - there are a couple of exceptions like A Fine Day and The Peacemaker. The same cannot be said for JLo. Could it be the over-exposure, her annoying attitude or just plain bad acting but anything with her in it I automatically avoid. So when I caught this on a movie channel I figured I would watch some of it if just to see Clooney and drool...which I did. But I also stuck with the film and began to enjoy it. The writing is smart and funny, the pace is fast, Steve Zahn is ALWAYS good, so is Ving Rhames. Clooney lands in jail after a botched bank robbery, he breaks out and in the process of getting out kidnaps a Federal Marshall (JLo). So Clooney and Rhames go to Miami and then Detroit for a big score - a former inmate has $5 million in uncut diamonds. But they are not the only ones who know about this and so they have to outsmart the bad-bad guys (unlike them who are good-bad guys). Excellent cast, Soderbergh did a great job with the colors - this was probably a test run for the look in Traffic. Recommended for fans of Elmore Leonard's writing and Soderbergh's style, or if you just like watching George Clooney.
Clooney at his best
The team of Soderbergh & Clooney has produced such lovely results as Oceans Eleven and experimental less-than-commercially successful gems like The Good German. I've seen Out of Sight at least a dozen times and had to have it for my collection. Clooney is so smooth in this one that watching him is like sipping warm caramel. He's the only actor to date to pair well with Jennifer Lopez, and the rest of the cast, from Don Cheadle to Ving Rhames, are superb--this owing to Soderbergh's fine sense of when to give the actors full rein. The story's convincing with enough twists to be interesting, a guy flick and a chick flick at once. One of the best heist films ever, in my book, with Gorgeous George playing the role he was born to play, according to Soderbergh in his voice-over commentary. Clooney as the charming criminal? Sure, he's made a career of it (let's see, all 3 Oceans films, O Brother, Out of Sight...)--so much so that people question whether he's actually acting. Who cares? This one's entertaining to the nines.
Director Soderburg talks to someone about nothing and adds nothing new.
"Out Of Sight" is a great movie.I have to point out that the collectors edition is a rip off though.The special features section on most DVD's add new information on the filming of the movie and other cool features.However on the special features on "Out Of Sight" the Director Steven Soderburg didn't take the time to add anything of any value to the Collectors edition.Instead he has a conversation with someone else.In his very effiminate voice and just goofs off talking about pretty much nothing.I totally wasted my money buying this collectors edition there is nothing of value added to the original movie.Soderburg claims he is retiring and going into painting.Good!The WORST Director I ever worked for in 35 films.
