17 December 2009 | Umar Mansoor Bajwa
| Good Action Movie
The Burglars is a good entertaining movie to watch during leisure hours. The futile but reckless car chase sequence is compelling and Belmondo vs Omar Shariff is an exciting combination.

Inspite of all the coercion and blackmailing by Zacharia (played by Shariff), the scoundrel played by Belmondo manages to escape at the end and the cop had to grapple in a heap of wheat flow under silos tanks. The theme music produced by Ennio Morricone has a subtle and beguiling tinge of danger and suspense. The movie has good action sequences, intriguing plot, catchy deceit and some romance, as well.

This movie is a much better entertainment than watching "Pirates of the Caribbean" or "The Mummy" or the recent "2012 end of the world" which can only be enjoyed by people sporting puerile imagination and fictional taste. A show of death and destruction, creepy images and fiction superimposed by computer animation and special effects does not correspond to good movie making.
