The all-too-obvious script weaknesses didn't spoil my fascination with the premise and where it took us. It also afforded me a whole new look at Williams.

'Deception' ends up as a splendid illustration of how acting skill can sometimes overcome a number of cinematic sins.

The kind of edge-of-your-seat sexual thriller that grabs you and doesn't let go.

It's a b-movie lark that aspires to something more and falls short, and the less you expect in the way of believability, the more enjoyable it is.

It's supposed to be about the two guys, played by Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman, but they both fade next to Williams' incandescent talent.

The plot comes together in Madrid in a whirl of multimillion-dollar swindles and gunplay, and for all its contrived surprises, it has the feel of a well-designed mousetrap snapping shut.

This is one slick flick about a world most of us will never experience. 'Deception' almost pulls it off ---- almost.

The director, Swiss-born Marcel Langenegger, has the knack of being able to distract you from the plot's excesses.

First time director Marcel Langenegger delivers a slick thriller that looks great, even though its plot points may not always make total sense

Um sub-Jade (e quem se lembra daquele longa dirigido por William Friedkin sabe o que ser um "sub-Jade" significa) que teria sido lançado diretamente no Cine Privê da Band caso não contasse com um elenco tão célebre.

An indigestible concoction of ingredients thrown together without the benefit of any serious consideration of logic.

When you advertise an erotic thriller and then give us a comedy, that's deception in any language.

A slick, cat-and-mouse thriller that unfolds with sharply-diminishing plausibility.

It is about as erotic as a midweek National Express coach journey to Hitchin.
