(SPOILER) Cool Money: Cool, Charming Caper Flick. Very complimentary review of Cool Money from Eclipse magazine.com. Discuss tonight's TV movie in this thread.
Long and very positive review of Cool Money ,well worth a read.
"Marsters is the main reason many will watch ‘Cool Money’ – his past as ‘Spike’ on ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Angel’ has garnered him a faithful fan base. Because Spike was such a demanding role, they will, no doubt, be pleased to see that he’s equally effective in another demanding role – and that his charm and charisma do not vanish along with Spike’s peroxide blond hair. Indeed, Marsters is completely convincing in the role of Bobby Comfort...."
"Be forewarned: this is not the high-tech caper tale of the recent ‘The Italian Job’, or ‘Heist’. This tale is set in the present, but looks back to the 70s for its low-tech, personality-based capers. Even though there is great intelligence in the conception of the heists and cat-and-mouse game between Bobby’s team and the police, this is not a gizmo-based flick – and is, frankly, all the more enjoyable for it. Indeed, ‘Cool Money’ is better than many big-budget heist flicks. Sometimes a piece of pure entertainment hits every mark – ‘Cool Money’ is one of those rare pieces of entertainment."
Grade: A "
