| Never drop the con.
Focus is a con movie and it's at its best when it's trying to con you into believing you know what is going to happen. The plot unfolds at a steady pace and you are left guessing what is going to follow. There are many twists and it's hard to keep up, as you would expect.

The regular cons work best in the first half, when the movie is trying to be fun and entertaining. During the second half of the movie the plot deepens and works around character development. That's when Will Smith and Margot Robbie come to life, they are at their best when they are given more to work with and they keep the movie interesting. However the movie gets caught juggling too many cons which by the end of the movie may feel just a bit flat; but still make for an unexpected and enjoyable finale.

Definitely worth watching. PS. The directors did a good job showing the importance of FOCUS in keeping the camera Focused at the right place.

Trivia

This is the first major Hollywood feature to be edited with Apple's Final Cut Pro X on Mac Pro. In December 2013, Neil W. Smith (Hollywood DI & LumaForge) spoke at the Digital Cinema Society forum dropping several hints as to the identity of a film being edited on FCPX including the studio, the multiple directors and the producer which ultimately add up to only one real possibility.


Quotes

Jess: So what about the big con? I though you were all big time.
Nicky: Oh, you mean the one where we make so much money, we can all retire and get yachts and boob jobs? Now, that's a fantasy. We are in the volume business. It's safer that way.


Goofs

Between the $50,000 and $100,000 bets at the "Super Bowl", despite it being portrayed as happening almost immediately, not only has possession gone from the Thrashers to the Rhinos but, apparently, a new quarter has started because the teams have switched field directions.

This is not a goof, because it's not portrayed as happening almost immediately. There's a time-compressing cut in scenes, since the main characters have also suddenly changed position, from the field-facing rows of seats to the lounge area behind the rows of seats. Furthermore, all people in the skybox have now shifted their focus from the football match to the bets between Nicky and Liyuan. These things all indicate that it has taken Liyuan's assistants some time to bring the suitcase with money, which the movie simply skips over.
