A movie review by moviereviewsetc.com

The movie starts with Jess trying to rip Nicky but ends up begging him to become his apprentice. He takes her under his wings and trained her to become a professional con artist and eventually a romantic relationship developed between them. Nicky teaches Jess the ropes and secrets of the trade with a Super Bowl event in New Orleans as her first assignment. They parted ways after the New Orleans event but met again in Buenos Aires a few years later; they are working on opposite sides of a car race event.
The movie is entertaining with enough style that covers up most of its shortcomings. There are elements that are almost ridiculous but the stylish directing and the performance of the main leads is charming that you may overlook some of the silliness. The main issue of the movie is that there are too many tricks which are overwhelming and makes the movie unorganized and “un-focused”.
The plot of Focus is not original; it is a twist on the classic crime romance plot. There are no surprises and it is predictable except maybe the ending. It may not be the best con artist movie but it is entertaining.
It stars Will Smith as Nicky, Margot Robbie as Jess and Rodrigo Santoro as Garriga. Written and directed by John Regua and John Ficarra.
