Out of Sight

I saw this movie while shopping at FYE for a decent price. It's cover had a gun on the front with a Roger Ebert quote saying it was one of the best movies of the year. The movie is also packing an awesome cast including George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Albert Brooks, and a Sam L Jackson cameo. The movie also has a great director, Steven Soderbergh, who has directed multiple critically acclaimed films including "Erin Brockovich," "Contagion," and his by far best film "Traffic" which is on my Top 100 Movies of All Time List that I will be posting soon. This movie sounds like its got the goods. It also has been put on lists for being one of the sexiest movies ever made. Yes, there are two great, well written, hot scenes where Clooney and J. Lo flirt, but the movie is ultimately boring. The humor falls flat and there are huge story lulls. I stopped caring towards the end of the film to the point where I was just reading about all of Lopez's past relationships with Ben Affleck and Sean Colmbs on Wikipedia on my iPod. That is a lot more interesting then this movie. The main plot is that a bank robber falls in love with a federal agent. We have seen this thing before and it is not done well here. There are no problems with the acting and everyone just does fine but that is it, just fine. There is next to no action so my recommendation is just to simply watch something else.
