Play or Pass

Contrary to the title of the film, The Score barely rated above mediocre to me despite its incredibly talented all-star cast. Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando and Edward Norton are all favourite actors who I hold in the highest regards but I suppose this film just proves that without a suspenseful story to glue audiences to the very end, no amount of Hollywood A-Listers can save what will ultimately be a safe attempt at a white-knuckled thriller.

Film Count: 91 out of 365

Not the best example of a caper-film, which should have a little bit more lightness of heart than DeNiro or Norton wanted to bring to it. It's the difference in directors, too. I think DeNiro was trying to get another "Ronin" under hios belt, but there's a big difference between John Frankenheimer knowing how to do this stuff well, and Frank Oz indulging his cast and taking what pleasure he can designing it once the actors seized control of it.

Still, it's diverting, if not memorable...and at least we got to see DeNiro and Brando (The two Godfathers) acting together.
