    ★★★½

    Well, it was six bucks well spent for a matinee. Kind of felt like a lazy (i.e. easy, i.e. vacation, i.e. simpler) version of Ocean's 11.

    Still, I had a smile on my face pretty much the whole time, even though I never fell in love with anything.

    Obviously damn intense and frustrating.

    And at 2 1/2 hours, it's the right length, but the wrong things are stretched out. As one example: the courtroom scene. Why have it if you're just gonna speed through it? Give us an actual courtroom scene that solidifies and explains some things.

    Probably my favorite Kathryn Bigelow movie since Point Break.

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
