It’s really hard to focus when there are so many beautiful con artists to follow!
Tonight, we review “focus”, the first of what i hope will be many – movies starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie…
In Focus, Nicky Spurgeon (played by Will Smith) an extremely accomplished con man who takes an amateur con artist, Jess (the BEAUTIFUL Margot Robbie), under his wing. Nicky and Jess become romantically involved, and with Nicky's profession of being a liar and a cheater for a living, he realizes that deception and love are things that don't go together. They split, only to see each other three years later... And things get messy.
If you like movies about beautiful, rich people, then you are in luck. High style, glamour and
lots and lots of money drip from the screen.
While I won’t say Will Smith is “back” with this movie, he is better than when we have seen him in a while. Will does drip sex appeal as a lone grifter in Focus, but it is Margot Robbie who makes us all go weak at the knees.
Here’s a little game for you – see if you recognize the actor who plays Will Smiths father in the movie – I sure didn’t!
While Focus isn’t going to break any box office records, it’s an entertaining movie that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Focus is rated R for some sexual content and brief violence.
