The Hot Rock Reviews:

I saw this movie for the first time when I was a child of about 4th grade age. It hooked me then and has stuck with me ever since as an enjoyable, fun, light caper movie. Granted it is not deep, serious or complicated. You do, however, "get your money's worth" because there is more than one caper that gets pulled for the nice guys to finally come out ahead. If you are looking for fun journey with the 70's charm and very tiny violence and virtually no adult language, give this film a try.


Robert Redford heads up a squad of criminals who can't seem to keep on to the diamond they stole in "The Hot Rock," a 1972 movie that also stars George Segal, Ron Liebman, Paul Sand, and Zero Mostel. It seems like yesterday that Redford was the Brad Pitt of his generation; he's adorable as a two-time felon looking at life if he doesn't receive away with his show caper - stealing a huge diamond from a museum. He brings along his brother-in-law (Segal) who has lost some of his confidence as a safe-cracker, Ron Liebman, an expert driver who also does disguises, and Paul Sand, a demolitions expert. They successfully steal the diamond from the museum using an elaborate ploy to receive the guards away from the site. Unfortunately, one of them (Sand) is caught, but before the police receive him, he swallows the diamond. The squad breaks him out of prison only to learn that he hid it in a holding cell. And that's only the beginning. Dortmunder (Redford) finally decides the rock is a jinx and declares, "It's either it or me." The performances are uniformly good, and Zero Mostel, as Sand's father/lawyer is hilarious, with a dramatic demeanor and an innocent, deadpan face when necessary. The storyline is very nice and its many chase and travel scenes give us some nice, recognizable views of 1970s Manhattan.This is a very watchable, enjoyable movie. Nice to see Redford the method he was.


This was my introduction to my favourite creator and his prized creation (under his name anyway) Donald Westalke's John Dortmunder and team create for a nice book, so far thirteen and counting. This film is based on the first ebook and one of the best.I won't receive into the plot because it's been gone over before, but Peter Yates and William Goldman crafted a cute fine entertaining film, it may not be as nice as the ebook (in fact it's not) but it doesn't stray too far, you got Robert Redford who's nice in about everything. When i was reading the ebooks at first i pictured him as Dortmunder, but my mental photo later switched to Walter Matthau. Then George Segal is a pitch excellent Andy Kelp, i don't think anyone should have been better. As a gearhead, my favourite hero of the series is the driver Stan Murch, and Ron Leibman embodies him perfectly.Overall the movie is much better then another adaptations like "Bank Shot" with George C. Scott, and "What's the Worst that Should Happen?" with Martin Lawrence, and only slightly better than "Why Me?" with Christopher Lambert, and if you haven't read any Donald Westlake, you should. You really should, begin with any of the Dortmunder books, and you'll receive hooked.
