Entrapment | 1999 | Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones

Glossy big-budget techno-thriller tosh which once again serves up a grizzled old man and a pouting young beauty as an apparently feasible screen coupling. Ageing thief Connery teams up with a lithe upcomer Zeta-Jones to pull off a high-tech scam amid an array of suitably futuristic gadgetry.
Notable for its central setpiece in which Ms ZJ balletically pirouettes her way through a criss-crossing maze of laser beams in a leotard to the grumpy delight of her crotchety tutor. Sadly, if that doesn’t grab your fancy, then there’s little else here to engage the interest.
