I had heard that Edward Norton really didn’t want to do this film, but did anyway just for the opportunity to work with Robert Deniro and Marlon Brando. I can see why he had reservations, it’s not a very deep movie, but as far as heist flicks go, it’s a very good one. Brando is big and hammy, Deniro is cold and reserved, and Norton plays the hungry young upstart well. t’s a bit slow, but I appreciated it for its old-fashoined-ness. The story unfolds at a deliberate pace, and the heist itself is very engaging. The ending was a bit obvious, but it didn’t bug me that much.
