Brief Synopsis – After a thief is released from orison following a ten year stay, he contacts a mob associate to help him finance a final job.
My Take on it – I’m use to seeing Sean Connery play the good guy and it wss interesting to see him play the bad guy here and he mostly pulls it off.
I wasnt the biggsst fan of the pacing because it kept switching too much between being too slow or too fast depending on the scene.
This movie has a nice supporting cast that includes Dyan Canon, Martin Balsam, Alan King and the debut of a young Christopher Walken.
Very average movie. Nothing special either way.
Bottom Line – Interesting to see Connery in such a role after knowing him as Bond. The plot is clever but moves either too slowly or too fast depending on the scene. Nice supporting cast that includes Canon, Balsam, King and Walken. Overall its a pretty average heist film.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – This is the first movie in which Connery stopped wearing a toupee. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
