Summary: Not Sean Connery's best.
This is a pretty good film if you're a fan of Catherine Zeta-Jones or Sean Connery, which I am. It's also good if you want to see the new Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. Aside from that the movie follows a fairly formulatic method of movies about thieves; although I personally think the age difference between the two leads made the romance quite ludicrous. A lot of people made a big deal out of Zeta-Jones slithing her way amongst the laser beams; personally I didn't see what the big deal was. I did however, get a good laugh out of their mainframe computer; basically a serial port and an RJ45 patch panel. Thankfully they didn't have any 9-track tape players; maybe those are finally falling out of style. This movie did however, portray sysadmins in a good light, and for that I give them bonus points.
