What a shame, that such a well-made movie is never able to convince us it is anything more than merely well-made.

Con thriller ensemble is cozy and cute -- and perhaps a little too content with how familiar it is.

If you've been to one or two of these, ranging from The Sting to Reservoir Dogs, your familiarity is liable to have bred some contempt.

A feature lesson in how not to make a caper movie.

I was entertained, but hardly stunned.

Confidence missteps in so many ways that you don't have to be a chess player to see ten moves ahead.

Confidence is too familiar a grifter flick to take me for a sucker.

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

An empty house of style, written in dim Mamet Lite.

At its best, Confidence is a weak remake of The Sting, without the charisma of Paul Newman and Robert Redford. At its worst, the movie wastes a talented cast.

If Confidence was made by people who have seen too many movies, it seems to be aimed at people who have seen too few.

While Foley's movie has style to burn, style does not a movie make.

Beware movies that open with lengthy voice-over narration. Particularly if they star the ever-more -annoying Ed Burns.

On a level with Steven Soderbergh's blah remake of Ocean's Eleven.

The combination of emotional anemia, predictable plotting and tepid language makes what might have been a crackerjack treat play like a soggy piece of popcorn.
Steve Crum

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

Director James Foley tries to slip the ole rubber peach past us and mostly succeeds.

They meet cute when she picks his pocket; Jake admires her nerve, if not exactly her skill, and he makes an offer, Walter Neff-ishly: "I'm talking about a grift, and it pays well."
