The Score | 2001 | R | - 4.5.8

Robert De Niro is a career thief who, against his better judgement, joins forces with a young accomplice (Edward Norton) in order to pull one last and nearly impossible job. The unlikely alliance is arranged by Nick's longtime friend and fence (Marlon Brando), and it has unpredictable results. Also with Angela Bassett and Jamie Harrold. [2:00]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and woman are shown kissing and fondling each other while they moan; they lie on a sofa and we see the woman's leg up to the thigh and see the man briefly moving on top of her. There are a few scenes where a man and woman kiss passionately: we see the couple in bathrobes in one scene, presumably after having had sex, and there are a few more romantic kisses. We see a woman in a cleavage-revealing evening gown and a man removes his shirt exposing his chest.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man shoves another man's head into a counter and hits him with a bat (we see his bloody nose). A man takes another man down with several blows from a bat (we hear him coughing in the background). A man shoots a gun at the floor near a man's feet and over his head. A group of security guards chase a man through access tunnels, with guns drawn and alarms blaring. A man threatens a man with a gun, the man threatens back with a gun of his own, a man is shoved into some metal fencing and is threatened with a gun, a man holds a gun on another man, and a man grabs a woman from behind covering her mouth. A man cuts through some metal grating and the top of a metal safe (using a torch) sending sparks flying everywhere, a safe is blown up and the door crashes into a security cage wall. There are several tense scenes during the planning of a robbery, the casing of the facility and the actual robbery. A man nearly kicks a security camera, a man dangles from a ceiling for a long time, a man talks about a woman having died, a woman talks about a man having been killed, and a man talks about another man wanting to kill him.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
