Overview

Steven Soderbergh directed this crime caper adapted from the novel by Elmore Leonard. When ex-con Jack Foley George Clooney robs a bank, his car goes dead, and Foley lands in a Florida prison. His escape from prison doesn't go as planned, since it's witnessed by deputy federal marshal Karen Sisco Jennifer Lopez. Foley's pal Buddy Bragg Ving Rhames intervenes, with the result that Sisco winds up in the trunk of the getaway car with Foley, and the two realize they're attracted to each other, despite being on opposite sides of the law. However, that doesn't stop Sisco from her mission to capture Foley, who has spent much of his life in prison. Flashbacks introduce Foley's fellow prisoners, including dim dude Glenn Michaels Steve Zahn, violent Maurice "Snoopy" Miller Don Cheadle, and insider trader and billionaire Richard Ripley Albert Brooks, who talks too much about his wealth. This later leads to a break-in at Ripley's posh Detroit estate by Miller, his brother-in-law Kenneth Isaiah Washington, and menacing White Boy Rob Keith Loneker. While seeking a hidden safe, the group threatens Ripley's housekeeper Midge Nancy Allen. Foley and Bragg are in on this operation, but they wind up outwitting the others, and Sisco is close on their trail. The film features uncredited cameos by Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson, and was shot in locations in Florida, Louisiana, and Michigan.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
A superior Elmore Leonard adaptation and critical favorite, Out of Sight (1998) reenergized Steven Soderbergh's directorial career and confirmed George Clooney's and Jennifer Lopez's movie-star quality. With Scott Frank's screenplay sticking closely to the eccentric source, Soderbergh infuses the unlikely connection between charmingly laid-back con Jack Foley and no-nonsense Fed Karen Sisco with a passionately cool romanticism; the intricate flashback structure renders their pairing a dreamy fait accompli even as Jack's line of "work" and comically shady associates accentuate its impossibility. The funky musical vibe and stylish cinematography, replete with velvety nights, bright Florida days, and astutely witty freeze-frames, neatly match the story's shifting moods. Along with the two stars, the gifted ensemble cast -- including Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Dennis Farina, Steve Zahn, Albert Brooks, and Catherine Keener -- is perfectly pitched to Leonard's wry humor; Lopez and Clooney's sultry onscreen chemistry is evident from the moment they meet in a car trunk. Though not a summer bonanza, Out of Sight still became Soderbergh's biggest success since sex, lies and videotape (1989) and won the National Society of Film Critics awards for Best Film, Director and Screenplay over future Oscar darlings Saving Private Ryan and Shakespeare in Love.

    One of my favorite movie

    One of my favorite movie! Great action, and love the pick-up lines between the two main characters.

    Cool, Slick, Smart Crime Thriller

    One of Steven Soderbergh's best films. The dialogue sizzles, as does the chemistry between George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. But the supporting cast is absolutely perfect with Don Cheadle, Ving Rhames, Steve Zahn and Albert Brooks.

    Great Movie

    The chemistry between Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney is steamy and incredible in this movie. They're a great team. This movie is a good action flick as well as a thought-provoking romance. Watch it!

    Okay film. I hate Elmore Leonard's works. I find his books boring and unlively, most of the time corny too. The movies that were made from Leonard's ideas made Leonard great. Stupid, ain't it? Anyway, back to the movie...I was harsh on George Clooney when he had an ill performance in Batman and Robin. Since He made Out of Sight, Perfect Storm, From Dawn to Dusk, and Ocean's Eleven, George Clooney did what Will Smith could never do, the transformation of a tv star into a movie star. I hope he will choose more roles to help him to reach his potential, since I believe he will hit it big with the right roles. Other than that, Jennifer Lopez, as usual, is resplendent but wears off quickly since she only has the beauty of a face and body. If the audience was more than be fascinated about the chemistry between the two couple, the movie is basically flat. A gap here and there comes up. For example, why the hell involve Michael Keaton in the movie since his role had absolutely nothing to do with the story, somewhat yeah contributes to the story but basically in a pointless way. Almost an all star cast here. Soderbergh's reason why he won the best picture for Traffic is because his style improved every film he did. From Sex, Lies, and Videotapes to Out of Sight to The Limey to Traffic, you can see how he experimented the style, what works and what doesn't work. This is an absolutely remarkable observation, granting the fact that he is a perfectionist. I absolutely love Soderberg's style in the film, but it seemed very young of maturity. In Traffic, his style reached its maturity. It is possible the audience will see a full maturity of Soderbergh's style, his ability to make each take stylized in an artistic way. He is an artist. That is why I have this film a 6 because it looked great with a flat story. Samuel Jackson's cameo elevated the movie. Without that, there is no good ending for this one.
