The Score Review
13 July 2001
Behind the Scene and other Major Plot Points
As far as best cast ever goes, I’ll just say it’s great to see two of the most respected and influential actors in cinema, De Niro and Brando, acting together in a film (even if they were past their prime). And, yes, Norton is perfect in this.
DeNiro & Norton…Magical Duo!
Speechless excellent movie…a well-deserved 10 the perfect score
They r no ugly people, there’s strange beauty
Watch STONE!!!It also stars Robert DeNiro and Edward Norton.
‘I’ve got company!’ What was this scene about?
I didn’t understand the scene where Norton told DeNiro “Hold on a minute… I’ve got company.” And then he just stood there waiting until DeNiro told him that he was pulling out of the job. I understand that he was planning on double crossing him after the safe was opened, but why was he acting like he was going to sabotage the entire plan at that point?
That was the arrogance of Norton’s character, he was in charge & wanted to sweat DeNiro a little bit.
Makes sense. Thanks
Yeah it seemed like he was waiting for DeNiro to have to need and ask for his help.
When De Niro first calls and says “I’m ready”, Norton makes a face like “no, not yet” and is furiously typing away on the laptop. He is setting the system so that the cameras and alarm are programmed to go off at the appropriate time for him to make his getaway after the double-cross. He then says “I’ve got company” just to buy a little time when De Niro grown more adamant and he’s still not done resetting the system. After that, there is no doubt that Norton enjoys making De Niro wait for him
Three gr-8 method actors… Should have been a classic.movie
It was an entertaining heist movie.It was a good movie but not a great one.The three great actors were able to transcend the predictable and cliched script.
being Brando’s last movie
was it his best? probably not.
No way does it live up to On the Waterfront. His part was pretty small in this movie, but its good to see him act anyway.
The Score or Stone?
Both movies,The Score and Stone,stars both great actors of their generation,Robert De Niro and Edward Norton.Have you seen both films?Which do you like better? Was it the action heist thriller,The Score; or the psychological drama,Stone?
In my case,I liked The Score better as compared to Stone.
It’s apples and oranges. The two movies have nothing in common (other than DeNiro and Norton, of course).
Stone is a meditative tone poem on corruption and weakness.
top of the line actor
This is a terrific movie–great, effortless performances by cream of the crop actors. It’s extremely suspenseful, and even funny a few times. Anyone who loves good acting should watch DeNiro and Brando together.
RT/Meta Critic Review
A movie which gets the job done as simply, efficiently and intelligently as possible.(Geoff Pevere/RT)
