Robert Redford leads an all-star team

The comic flip-side to Robert Redford’s current release The Company You Keep, Phil Alden Robinson’s heist caper casts Mr Sundance as a former student radical now running an oddball team of security consultants who, having been conned into pinching a hi-tech McGuffin, decide to steal it back.

Don’t worry too much about the plot though: the pleasure lies here in watching the all-star cast (Sidney Poitier, Dan Aykroyd, Ben Kingsley) jockey for position in a style that eerily pre-figures the antics of the Ocean’s Eleven ensemble nine years later.

Who would have thought, two decades on, that it would be River Phoenix we’d be missing?
