Critics Consensus: While it may not be on par with his best crime capers, No Sudden Move finds Soderbergh on entertainingly familiar ground -- and making the most of an excellent cast.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that No Sudden Move is a heist thriller set in the 1950s. Director Steven Soderbergh uses the genre to explore racism, anti-Semitism, the unfair American power structure, automobile-related pollution, and other social ills. Married characters have affairs, but there's no sex or nudity. Double-crosses and plot twists abound. Two men are roughed up and thrown into car trunks. Characters are held hostage at gunpoint, beaten, shot, and threatened. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," "goddamn," "Jesus Christ," and the racist epithet "Sambo." A man implies he removed the "stein" ending of his surname so that no one would assume he was Jewish. A White man refuses to sit next to a Black person. Characters smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol.
