Entrapment

Entrapment is a typical American caper movie with impossible heists, crosses and double-crosses, and constant vying for the upper hand between thieves who don’t completely trust each other but who desperately need each other to pull off the heist.

At times the film seems very much like a typical, action packed, James Bond film, especially the opening scene where Zeta-Jones’ character steals an original Rembrandt. The film follows the characters from New York to Scotland to Kuala Lumpur, where the largest heist is to steal $8 billion from one of the largest banks on the eve of the new millennium.

The building used for exterior shots of Mac’s (Sean Connery) safe house is Duart Castle, near Craignure, the ancestral home of the chief of the Clan MacLean, which incidently is the maiden name of Connery’s mother.
