When a priceless Rembrandt is stolen from a New York high-rise, the evidence points to Robert "Mac" MacDougal (Sean Connery), a solitary master thief, who is about to meet Virginia "Gin" Baker (Catherine Zeta-Jones), the insurance company's most cunning - and seductive - investigator. Following a nerve-racking game of cat and mouse spanning three continents, Mac and Gin join forces...or so it seems...to attempt a daring multibillion-dollar heist tied to the dawn of the new millennium.

"...crackling suspense and startling surprises.  Jeanne Wolf's Hollywood
"...spectacular action...  NBC-TV
"...the most enjoyable thriller of 1999.  SRN Radio Network

Editor's Note
Sparks fly as Catherine Zeta-Jones, an insurance agent, charms her way into doing business with Sean Connery, an aging thief. In preparation for their latest heist, Connery has her suffer through a rigorous training camp. Promises begin to blur and dwindle as romance introduces itself into the picture, building up to a payoff that's sure to disappoint one of the involved parties.

Professional Reviews

Variety
"...[Connery] is as sure-handed as ever....The stunning Zeta-Jones here displays an unmistakable confidence and assurance in this full-blown starring role..." p.43-8

Sight and Sound
"...Superb sets and cinematography, spectacular locations....[Zeta-Jones] emerges from ENTRAPMENT a full-blown star..." 07/??/1999 p.41-2

Entertainment Weekly
"...[A] high-gloss throwback....One sexy and satisfyingly twisty dance..." -- Rating: B 11/26/1999 p.104

New York Times
"...[Ms. Zeta-Jones] plays her role in fresh, headstrong fashion, Mr. Connery has the effortless authority to give the film some ballast, and the unalloyed charisma to make the whole thing look easy..." 04/30/1999 p.E15

USA Today
"...Sumptuous aesthetics....Plus lead casting that would add tang to any marquee..." 04/30/1999 p.6E

Chicago Sun-Times
"...It works because it is made stylishly, because Connery and Zeta-Jones are enormously attractive actors, and because of the romantic tension between them..." 04/30/1999 p.29

The New York Times 7 of 10
While she [Zeta-Jones] plays her role in fresh, headstrong fashion, Connery has the effortless authority to give the film some ballast, and the unalloyed charisma to make the whole thing look easy. It helps that the romance isn't overworked and that his Mac has an imperious, crotchety streak to keep his much younger partner at bay. With Ron Bass and William Broyles (the former editor of Newsweek and Texas Monthly) as screenwriters, the script tosses in a convenient prohibition that it would be "against the rules" for these two to get involved. This is only slightly less credible than the duo's ultimate gambit of trying to steal billions from a Malaysian bank in the world's tallest building on New Year's Eve. - Janet Maslin

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
Entrapment is the very embodiment of a star vehicle: a movie with a preposterous plot, exotic locations, absurd action sequences, and so much chemistry between attractive actors that we don't care. It stars Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones in a caper that reminded me of To Catch a Thief, Charade, Topkapi and the stunt sequences in Bond pictures. I didn't believe a second of it, and I didn't care that I didn't. - Roger Ebert
