Lisa Marie Bowman85 - An unusual heist film, featuring award-worthy performances from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jeff Daniels.

Dan O'Neill70 - The Lookout may run into some predictable territory by the end, but Scott Frank’s direction keeps this flick fun and entertaining, with plenty of good performances from this cast that makes every character seem even more well-rounded than the last.
