FOCUS (2015)

In the midst of veteran con man Nicky’s latest scheme, a woman from his past – now an accomplished femme fatale – shows up and throws his plans for a loop. –IMDB

 FOCUS is a slow movie, the main value of which is that I came out from the movie with greater insight into how pickpockets work at their trade so successfully. At times if felt like the story had moved into education mode giving instruction so we would know what to look for later. Will Smith at the helm didn’t do much to improve the experience and, if it wasn’t for the stunning Margot Robbie, the whole thing would have been rather drab. Most of the exciting twists and turns occurred late in the story and felt rather contrived. Wait for the DVD or give it a miss all together.
