A cleverly written crime comedy with great performances. The story, adapted from the book of the same name by Elmore Leonard, follows the relationship between a charismatic bank robber (George Clooney) and a federal marshal (Jennifer Lopez). These two characters are written well and the sort of cat and mouse game that ensues between them is captured well. It's a bit drawn out in places but it leads to a well executed finale.
Clooney and Lopez are excellent and share terrific chemistry together. Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Steve Zahn, Albert Brooks, Dennis Farina, Luis Guzmán, Isaiah Washington, Catherine Keener and Viola Davis all provide good support. Michael Keaton reprises his role from Jackie Brown in a fun cameo and Samuel L. Jackson also cameos towards the end.
The energetic camerawork is outstanding and does a great job of setting the tone for the film in the first few minutes.
