Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Most noirs are coming of age stories where an innocent learns how vicious and cruel the world can be. Only he usually learns it while a hunk of hot lead burns in his gut.

The Lookout is Memento done more as a character study. While the plot is mildly predictable, the film functions as an interesting insight into the life of Chris Pratt, and the things that he struggles with on a daily basis. Some not-so-great decisions lead to some not-so-great consequences, that he must deal with for the rest of his life. Gordon-Levitt is great, as usual, at hinting at the deeper struggles of his character. The film is smart and thrilling, and just plain enjoyable.

Though familiar, Scott Frank's The Lookout is a smart crime film. The script is poignant with their characters' realistic mindsets and actors that portray them with enough believability. Frank artfully blended engaging suspense and sharp performances that never overpowers the protagonist's own tragedy.
