Film Review by Allen Henriquez

The Score (2001)

Directed by: Frank Oz

Writers: Kario Salem, Scott Marshall Smith, Lem Dobbs

Cinematographer: Rob Hahn

Music: Howard Shore

Cast: Robert De Niro, Angela Bassett, Marlon Brando, Edward Norton

On Screen performance by Jazz Great Cassondra Wilson

The story of the heist to steal a golden scepter, from a custom’s house in Montreal, that is “The Score,” is filled with many beautiful things packaging it. The beauty of Montreal, connected to: excellent writing, cinematography, and direction, along with wonderful music by Howard Shore, and Cassandra Wilson are the wrapping and additional contents. The cast is where the greater fun arrives with De Niro, Bassett, Brando and Ed Norton. The enigmatic flight attendant involved with De Niro, played by Bassett, is the most stable character. Brando’s character manipulates others because he is desperate. Norton with his conciseness and with layers of deceit is filled with anger, greed, and ambition. However, De Niro is, as a favor to Brando, pushed into the situation. The performers play off of each other so well that its entertaining and filled with excitement.

The Score moves smoothly and doesn’t insult, with the two Vito Corleones on screen together, check it out.
