An admired high school hockey player with a bright future, drives in the night with his girl friend and two other friends with his headlights off with devastating results. The former athlete is left with a brain injury that prevents him from remembering many things for extended periods of time. To compensate, he keeps notes in a small notebook to aid him in remembering what he is to do. He also lives with a blind friend who aids him. He is unable to have meaningful job and he goes to work as a night cleaning man in a bank. He comes under the scrutiny of a gang planning to rob the bank. The leader befriends him and gets him involved with a young woman who further reels him in. Confused, but wanting to escape his current existence, he initially goes along with the scheme. When he realizes he is being used, he attempts to stop the robbery, which of course immediately goes awry.

A predictable film which shows how people can take advantage of those with disabilities.

Complex yet easy to follow. It is about a deadly accident, a bank robbery, friendships and a pokey town. No fast forward from start to finish:

The Lookout was a decent movie with solid performances all around. It's hard to believe that Joseph Gordon Levitt has come a long way since he was once on "3rd Rock From The Sun". Worth checking out.

The first half was good and built up the characters and story well. The second half was a bit disappointing and predictable. The description on the back of the DVD case talks about a twist "you won't see coming". There is nothing of the sort.

An excellent film, one that is touching and does a fantastic job of telling a difficult, painful story
