What does ‘The Score’ consist of?
1) Robert De Niro is a brilliant actor working the Stanislavsky system. Robert is one of the few actors who can play any role – be it a mafioso (‘Casino’; ‘Goodfellas’; ‘Once Upon a Time in America’); a boxer (‘Raging Bull’); a cab driver (‘Taxi Driver’); a maniac rapist (‘Cape Fear’)! The Score is no exception. De Niro does his job perfectly here, which pleases his fans and which only makes the movie better!
2) Edward Norton – a worthy ‘counterbalance’ De Niro! Edward is also famous for his skill to embody the screens of different images. His first big role in ‘Primal Fear’ earned him an Oscar nomination, and a couple of years later he was nominated again for his role as a skinhead in ‘American History X’. All this made the public and critics to closely monitor the further career Norton. Edward himself at first did not want to take part in the film, but he changed his mind after it became known that Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando would star in ‘Medjazatnik’!
3) Marlon Brando – to say that this man is a great actor is like saying nothing! He has dozens of great film roles to his credit, making him one of the most outstanding actors of the 20th century. The high point of his career in my opinion is Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s drama The Godfather and Colonel Kurtz in the parable Apocalypse Now! Sadly the role in ‘The Score’ was the last of Marlon Brando’s career.
4) Screenplay and Directing – ‘The Score’ had a very interesting script and the choice to direct Frank Oz was highly questionable. Could he make an interesting movie out of a good script? – That was the question that took place during the filming process. But Frank pulled it off and it turned out to be a really great movie (thanks in large part to a great cast)!
Bottom line: Three great actors, a good script and direction all make ‘The Score’ a great movie with a clever ending that you won’t regret spending time watching!
