The Score Reviews
Alternating on trumpet and tenor sax, Norton does some terrific solos. De Niro is the ace drummer providing rhythmic backbone, and Brando tickles out gorgeous filigrees on piano.
After sitting through such sloppy and reckless high-concept heist films as Mission: Impossible and Entrapment, it's refreshing to witness the careful, methodical attention to details that distinguishes The Score.
Restoring the seductive style of the no-nonsense procedural heist movie to complete luster, this is the kind of pic that knows the difference between being masculine and being macho.
