Focus Movie Review


Yea, so I didn't like this movie too much.

I mean in the beginning, the premise and the cast had me, but towards the end, it was kind of hard to feint interest in the movie. Will Smith will always be an actor who I will support, and with that comes the pains of seeing him make hit movies and movies that are simply just a miss, and this is a miss. The story line was cool and all, and the actors in it are familiar to me, but for some reason, it just never stuck with me, or rather I never caught the actual vibe of the movie. I feel like the storytelling was a bit rushed in the beginning so that it could set up the big bang in the film later, sacrifices I guess.

Not much really to say about this movie other than the beginning was pretty awesome and it shows you a lot of cool tricks on how to swipe something from someone right in their face. Like I said, I didn't feel properly setup to enjoy the plot twist at the end of the movie. I'm pretty sure this is one of Will's throw away movies that he wanted to make, the trailer had me hype for it, but it was a supreme let down. I think this and Maggie were two of the films that let me down in terms of me giving some of my favorite old actors a chance at redemption.

Usually I say hey watch this movie either at the $1 theater or even on Redbox when it comes out, but naw, don't waste your time on this one at all. The chemistry between the two was cool, so be on the look out for them when they team up for Suicide Squad coming out in 2016. I think Margot is actually playing Jane in the new Tarzan movie coming out in 2016 as well, so that's something to look out for as well. Actually Will is in an upcoming movie dealing with concussions and how former NFL players deal with it in their lives after football and how the NFL tries to cover it, it's called Concussion, so that sounds interesting. But yea, as for my recommendation, don't bother seeing this movie unless you have a lot of free time on your hands.

Have you seen this movie? If so, how did you like it? Was it interesting, or was it just blah? Leave it in the comments below.

Until next time guys.
