Focus is Will Smith’s return to form after what seems like an eternity. Yes, the fresh prince has finally started doing good movies again. Joined by Margot Robbie (Excellent), the two leads charm their way across a slightly above average plot. This movie is a lot of style with a little substance here and there. The plot is confusing and a little too convenient at times, but if you do lose focus, they movie ensures you get it back quickly.

 

Jess is a con artist who along with her associate, picks the wrong guy to try and pull a fast one on. The wrong guy, i.e Nicky, is a con man himself. An elite one. After seeing his considerably superior conning skills, Jess follows him around until he agrees to teach her. They start dating until one day, after pulling off a major con, Nicky just leaves without an explanation. They meet again some time later, when Nicky is working for the owner of a racing company who Jess is apparently dating. The owner, Garriga, wants Nicky to sell a fake fuel combustion formula to his main competitor to throw him off track. Nicky however, has other plans.

 

Focus is an extremely enjoyable movie, with its fair share of thrills as well. Its biggest drawback is that its a bit too unbelievable at times, with some of the twists appearing a bit too coincidental.

However, the chemistry between the leads is really good, and so are the scenes involving them.

This movie should definitely be in your focus this weekend!
