Con man meets the mob. Violent, grown-up tale.

I was entertained, but hardly stunned.

Jammed with double and triple-crosses that make Doug Jung's confusing screenplay secondary to the film's overall look.

While it sometimes fails to live up to its title, Confidence ultimately, wins us over-in short, it dazzlingly does what all good cons are supposed to do.

| Original Score: 3.5/5

Misses the first rule of whodunnit filmmaking and never recovers; if you fool me once, you have to at least give me a reason to care that I've been fooled.

...the performances elevate a standard con game plot.

Garcia, who plays the least glamorous role of his life, does the best job of thieving each scene he's in.

Podemos até admirar a engenhosidade do tal 'golpe perfeito', mas não nos importamos muito com seus resultados.

certainly rivals con-film king Mamet for the choppy, colloquial crispness of its dialogue, but lacks something of the intricacy of Mamet's plotting.

With this crew doing the conning, I'm happy to be suckered.

'It's great to have Hoffman back from his self-imposed movie exile.'

Confident performances from confident performers, indeed, all chewing the kind of post-Tarantino dialogue that's dotted the genre's recent landscape.

Not quite as clever as it thinks it is, but it's still too clever for its own good.

This isn't the worst film of its kind, but it isn't the best either. "Confidence" is only Hollywood's most recent attempt at a cookie-cutter sting/heist film... If you want something other than junk food, go rent "Diggstown" again.

While Confidence is packed with all the ballsy bombast of Glengarry, it lacks the heart-stopping tension.

Foley has definitely had his share of bombs - remember Madonna in Who's That Girl, or Marky Mark Wahlberg in Fear - it is apparent that he has found his niche with Confidence.

The problem here is, however, that the real game is the filmmakers'. As I left the theater, I couldn't shake the feeling that I'd been had.
