Focus

“Focus” is a crime caper movie set in lovely locations and it’s fun to watch.

Will Smith and Margot Robbie are both stars who have good looks, presence and great comic timing. The supporting cast features outstanding performances from Gerald McRaney, B D Wong, Rodrigo Santoro and Adrian Martinez.

The plot is centred around conman Nicky (Smith) who takes apprentice Jess (Robbie) under his crooked wing.

We zap between New York, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Buenos Aires. It makes crime look like it pays.

Amoral but beautiful people, superb locations and good performances make it pass by quickly, although the energy seems to flag in the middle section.

But it’s a popcorn movie and won’t last long in your mind.

  1. Good review Greer. Smith and Robbie make this a bit more than just a fun romp. Although, the movie definitely is still that.

    • Even though it’s very pretty, it fails to stay in my mind.
