Like Richard Widmark, [John C. Reilly] is an excellent character actor who can convey both likeability and pathetical desperation simultaneously.

Those viewers who watched NUEVE REINAS beforehand will be affected with increasingly unpleasant feeling of deja vu.

Con film aficionados won't find the picture revolutionary, but even they should enjoy the structure, craftsmanship and a nice supporting performance by Maggie Gyllenhaal.

A second-generation photocopy of a David Mamet cryptogram.

[It's] a safer, watered-down, but still enjoyable redo.

...the interaction of the movie's two leads, Reilly and Luna, is so good you might enjoy it for their performances alone.

it's Training Day for confidence tricksters, an exciting 24-hour tour of LA's underworld with a headache-inducing sting in its tail.

Considerando-se que o ótimo Nove Rainhas foi realizado há apenas alguns anos, esta refilmagem soa desnecessária, por mais interessante que seja seu roteiro.

It isn't quite as witty or gritty as Nine Queens, but if you didn't see that film, then see it now that it's in English.

Like a smash-and-grab job, the movie gets in, springs the con and gets out quick - leaving the viewer to replay the twists on his or her own time.

While the twists at the end are a little more predictable here than in the first film, it's still an assured work, especially considering that it comes from a first-time director.

This is one of the best con movies I have seen as rare currency is used as the valuable commodity.

A jazzy, offhandedly brilliant exercise in colorful mendacity and shell game shenanigans that benefits from the cool, authoritative occupational swagger of John C. Reilly.

The remake is so faithful to the first film that some of the snap and crackle disappears if you know the plot. It's like watching The Sixth Sense for a second time.

Yet another inexplicable American remake that adds nothing new to the original.
