Mystery, suspicion and deception are the high points of the movie Entrapment. Gin Baker, played by Catherine Zeta-Jones, works for an insurance company that has experienced high losses due to theft. Sean Connery plays Robert MacDougal, a very clever, very sought after thief. Gin enlists the help of Mac to break into a museum and steal an ancient Chinese artifact called The Mask. They retreat to Mac’s home – a beautiful castle on a remote island – to practice the plan step-by-step. Later, after the burglary is a success and they are on the way out of the museum, Mac stops Gin and tells her that he knows she works for the insurance company and is trying to trap him. She admits she has been misleading him, but she wants to enlist his help in another burglary that promises a payoff in billions of dollars. (I may be blind, but I’m not stupid. I think I would have finished my getaway before I began planning the next job.) The job she had in mind was to steal 8 billion dollars from an Asian bank at midnight at the turn of the new century. I guess she wanted a really happy new year. They attempt the robbery, but there are more suprises. This action-adventure was too slow, except during the burglary scenes, which lasted a combined total of twenty minutes. Oh, and did they really think that there would appear to be a chemistry between a 70-ish Connery and a 30-ish Zeta-Jones? Thank goodness there were no love scenes – that would have hurt even my eyes! There are a few twists and turns, but not enough to give it anything higher then a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
