Critic's Pick

'Sneakers'

May 15, 1994|Kenneth Turan

A confident 1992 caper movie with a pleasant sense of humor, this film goes about its business in such a good-spirited way that it manages to make its familiar "Mission: Impossible" plot seem new. Its light spirits are due to both its ensemble cast, headed by Robert Redford (right) as the head of a San Francisco security systems firm and to director Phil Alden Robinson, who wrote the smart though convoluted script with producers Walter F. Parkes and Lawrence Lasker. Helping Redford test his systems to see if they're really secure are his staffers Sidney Poitier (left), Dan Aykroyd, David Straithairn and River Phoenix (TMC Friday at 8 p.m.).
