Critical reaction

The film opened to mixed or average reviews [1] as described by Metacritic. Rottentomatoes lists the film as receiving only 37% positive reviews [2] Critics focused on a scene where Zeta-Jones worms around a net of laser beams. The camera lingers on her buttocks through much of the scene. Critic Scott Weinberg said "OK, if you own a TV then you've seen that scene. You know the one. It's when Catherine Zeta-Jones squirms her beautiful rear down onto the floor to avoid a laser alarm system. It's shown on the commercial, the preview and in the movie itself like 7 times. The challenge is this: Build a movie around it." [3]. The laser scene was choreographed by Paul Harris, who also choreographed the wand to wand combat sequences in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Paul Harris is an English Choreographer in film, television and theatre whose best known work to date is probably the laser scenes for Catherine Zeta-Jones in the movie Entrapment. He has choreographed several BAFTA winning television dramas including the BBCs landmark Bleak House and he is the choreographer...

Other more mainstream critics such as the New York Times[4], New York Magazine[5], the Chicago Sun-Times[6], Variety[7], and the legendary Desson Howe/Thomson of the Washington Post[8] lavished praise on it.


The film was also a box office success, grossing over $87 million domestically. The term box office can refer to either: A place where tickets are sold to the public for admission to a venue The amount of business a particular production, such as a movie or theatre show, does. ...


Malaysian reaction

Complaints arose that the movie depicted Malaysia as a backwards country and was misportrayed. The controversy arose from one scene in particular, where a shantytown in Malacca was superimposed over a tilt shot of the then recently constructed Petronas Towers. Shanty towns are units of irregular low-cost and self-constructed housing built on terrain seized and occupied illegally -- usually on lands belonging to third parties, most often located in the urban periphery of the cities. ...

Entrapment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (457 words)
In jurisprudence, entrapment is a procedural defense by which a defendant may argue that they should not be held criminally liable for actions which broke the law, because they were induced (or entrapped) by the police to commit said acts.
Entrapment is an issue that must be considered in designing sting operations.
Another famous entrapment scandal occurred in 1998, when British pop singer George Michael was arrested in a Los Angeles bathroom by an undercover police officer pretending to be a homosexual in order to get George Michael to perform oral sex and thus get arrested.
