Several of Elmore Leonard's books have seen recent adaptations to the big screen, but none are as faithful to his brilliant characterizations as Out of Sight. This movie is a treasure-trove of witty, ultra-cool dialogue and hip character interplay. Marvellously directed by Steven Soderbergh, the film plays around the attraction between Jack Foley (George Clooney), a sly but fairly trouble prone bank robber and Karen Sisco, the scorchingly beautiful and ambitious FBI agent known for her dalliances with bank robbers. Clooney and Jennifer Lopez burn up the screen with two of the hottest performances seen in an action film in quite some time. Unforgettable dialogue, several truly great performances and an intelligent flashback-style chronology make this movie a pleasure to watch. If you're into films that pack as much intelligence as they do entertainment value, then this one belongs in your library.

Synopsis

This adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s novel concerns a federal agent (Jennifer Lopez) who is kidnapped by two escaped convicts (George Clooney and Ving Rhames). She must reconcile her fondness for her suave captors with her sworn duty to uphold the law. Charming, unpredictable, sophisticated, multifaceted performances from the entire cast distance this film from other recent "girl gets kidnapped and falls in love" stories. Once again, director Steven Soderbergh proves his overflowing talent behind the camera.

Description

A federal agent (Lopez) is kidnapped by two escaped convicts (Clooney and Rhames). She must reconcile her fondness for her suave captors with her sworn duty to uphold the law. Charming, unpredictable, sophisticated, multi-faceted performances from the entire cast distance this film from other recent "girl gets kidnapped and falls in love" stories. Based on an Elmore Leonard novel. Hilarious reprisal of his "Jackie Brown" role as an FBI agent by Keaton.
