The bad critics of this movie had been applied to the 1946 Bette Davis and Charles Boyer movie of the same title ,by mistake... Which this one, is a very good thriller to my taste.including the machiavellian Claude Rains.

It's not a bad film, but it is a forgettable one and the plot twists were predictable. It is a stylish thriller and the cast did their best to elevate the mediocre script, but the stakes were so low and the third act made no sense.

Another typical, easy and predictable thriller. Some of the plot "twists" are seen coming a mile away even though they're pretty implausible.

Deception is about an accountant by the name of Jonathan McQuarry. One night while working late he meets Wyatt Bose. The two of them strike up a conversation that leads to a friendship. When Wyatt gets set to leave to London on business he accidently takes Jonathan's phone and Jonathan takes his by accident too. Jonathan realizes that the numbers in Wyatt's phone are from a sex hot line group and so Jonathan goes from being an average guy to somewhat of a playboy meeting girls every other week including a particular one he meets at the train station. The story begins to take a turn when Wyatt goes from nice cool guy to manipulative con man who holds Jonathan's new girl hostage and will kill her unless jonathan helps him with a money transfer.
Sooo at first I like the style and aethestic of the film it looked very classy. Ewan Mcgregor does a pretty good job here. however the story lacked depth and suspense. The structure of it wasn't very well done. so in other words bad directing here. it takes too long to get to the real conflict of the film it should have been done faster. hugh jackman wasn't too bad as a villain but he coulda worked form a better script though as this was really bad. This was one of michelle Williams more sexy roles ill give her that in the film but she didn't really provide much here. It did have nice cinematography
It's a full real story of deception but just not done right. it might have worked if Michael mann was the visionary behind it he would be able to tackle this story in the right way. don't see it its pretty shitty.

The title pretty much sums it up.

The most impressive unimpressive movie I've ever seen; every dynamic transcends mediocrity just enough to be passable.

A possability, though manily because it has Ewan McGregor in it.

Pretty decent drama with some thriller moments but not so much. Story and the acting are on high level starring Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor. Some twists aswell which are always good in these type of movies. Overall worth a closer look altho there are better movies out there.

I finally watched this after putting it off for a long while and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. It was a bit predictable I admit, but it kept my attention and that is all that matters to me.

You can see this ending coming from the start. Great performances by the leads, but in the end that isn't enough to stop this from being a complete waste of time.

Could only manage half the movie because it was too predictable and slow.
