    The Hot Rock

    ★★★★

    Dortmunder, Robert Redford, has just been released from jail and within five minutes he is already planning his next heist with his lockpicking brother-in-law Kelp, George Segal. Kelp tells Dortmunder he already has a great lookout and the driver arranged and the plan is set.

Of course, Paul Muni manages to escape to England, get the Brit Navy on board and become a Commando! Makes for one hell of a recruitment flick that's for sure.

    This is one of those movies that was likely a dynamite novel that proved too difficult to modify into a screenplay. The result was a lot of strange dialog exposition which required the audience to make giant leaps to keep up. Thankfully just when I thought all was lost the computer, (which for all practical purposes is a member of the cast) explains what has happened.

    Still, if you are a science fiction nerd like myself this is worth your time.
