Will Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Margot Robbie). As he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame—now an accomplished femme fatale—shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes racecar circuit. In the midst of Nicky’s latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop…and the consummate con man off his game.

This Movie is Awesome, it’s a slow paced movie. However, it is brilliantly scripted to get anyone glued to their seat. Even the must lucid review member of our team had a brilliant ride. It’s a well-managed script, despite the complicating leads by writers in the movie, that is, of course, obvious, when you combine Denise Di Novi & Charlie Gogolak.
If you love thrillers, this is a go. It has some comedy loops, a bit of action, but the thrill tops it all. it is Rated R for language, some sexual content and brief violence. The movie opens at Cinemas in South Africa from 13/03/2015
