Out of Sight Movie Review
Out of Sight is by no means what I expected it to be. Actually, I didn't know what it was going to be like... perhaps a romantic comedy, or an action comedy, or a drama. In reality, it was a mix of all of these, and, with some original filming, the result was quite interesting and peculiar.
George Clooney is Jack Foley, and his performance is far superior to that in The Peacemaker. The character fits snuggly around him and he's actually quite charming, and funny. Jennifer Lopex is Karen Sisco, and she plays about the sexiest FBI Agent ever. While she did a good job, I don't know if her character was as professional as it should have been.
The script is good and the story original; there is a mix of comedy and romance, but all of it is subtle. The filming and order of the story was extremely appealing; it was like nothing I had ever seen before. The shooting actually froze at the end of several scenes, and sometimes in the middle of a scene. Flashbacked popped up throughout the movie, introducing characters when the present story required. The sex scene between Lopez and Clooney is especially memorable; two scenes with them in it (one where they are taking, another where they are undressing) are going at the same time.
The comedy in Out of Sight was subtle at best, and, while there wasn't a lot, did fit the story. The funniest part was when that fat guy tripped on the stairs...
Out of Sight is an original and amusing film, and everyone should see it at least once.
