    Synopsis


    The Score
    Three generations of method acting giants unite for this crime thriller written by Kario Salem and directed by Frank Oz. Robert De Niro stars as Nick Wells, an aging thief whose specialty is safecracking and who is on the verge of retiring to a life of ease, running his jazz club and romancing his girlfriend Diane (Angela Bassett). But before he can ride off into the sunset, Nick is pressured to do one last job by his mentor and business partner, a flamboyant and extravagant upscale fence named Max (Marlon Brando). Max is plotting the heist of the Montreal Customs House, and he's got a man on the inside, Jackie Teller (Edward Norton), a talented but volatile crook who has managed to ingratiate himself with the facility's staff as a fellow employee suffering from cerebral palsy. Jackie bristles at Nick's interference in "his" score, however, and threatens violence when it seems he's going to be cut out of the action. In the meantime, Nick grows increasingly ill at ease about the operation, as it violates his two most important dictums in thievery: always work alone and never pull a job in your own city. The part of Max in The Score was written specifically for Brando by screenwriter Salem, although the improvisational star and his director Oz reportedly clashed during filming. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Awesome combination of powerhouse actors: Robert DeNiro, Edward Norton, and Marlon Brando. Unique storyline that has an interesting way of getting job done with a spectacular twist. Edward Norton does an amazing job switching his characters on and off. Robert DeNiro acts in one of his best non-gangster roles. Highly recommend.

      I have always been a fan of Robert De Niro was years. I loved this movie because the role portrayed by De Niro proved that sometimes young people think they know better, however, older people always have the edge.

      Noton, De Niro, and Brando deliver top-notch performances in this heist film directed by Frank Oz. A bit boring in the beginning, but it really picks up, especially during the films's fantastic third act.

      The late great Marlon Brando and perhaps Robert DeNiro's last good serious movie along with excellent Ed Norton. Who tops who? Guess Just have to find out but definitely worth watching.

      A good thriller that has a great twist. This movie brought Robert De Niro two things he loved more than anything, money and black women
