The Good, the Bad and the Con Artist
• A film that truly 'cons' its audience as its predictable plot turns out to be unpredictable.
• Will Smith and Margot Robbie's sexy charisma and chemistry in the film will make you blush and yet you can't look away from the screen.
• It has been a while since Smith has acted in a good action film, the last time we've seen him kicking butts on screen was in "Men In Black 3" and let's just forget about his performance in "After Earth", thus, his performance in this film will keep you at the edge of your seat.
• Robbie had a fine and unforgettable performance in "Wolf of Wall Street", but her role in "Focus" will seriously made the audience 'focus' on her even more on screen.
• Though the film has some cliched moments, it is surprisingly good. But it may not be the kind of film that will make you remember it for long.
• Will Smith's role were previously offered to Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck.
