Truth be told, the plot is so crazy and so full of holes that it keeps your attention in a strange sort of way. It is so bad, it is fascinating.

Audience Reviews for Deception

This is one of those films that is so horrible but you've invested enough time that you have to finish this unbearable movie. The story is extremely ridiculous. Almost feels like it wasn't finished being written but the movie was made anyway. So many holes in the story.

Deception is a very interesting mystery film that can be difficult to follow at times since the plot could use more polish, but it sure is a fun film that has a lot of neat ideas and is generally compelling. The acting is also pretty stellar across the board and make the film really sizzle. It's a very underrated mystery film that is actually quite good.

All I want to know is WHO recommended this movie to me!!! I picked this one based up a recommendation and it's killing me that I can't remember who. It was SO horrible I want to thank that "friend" properly :) I fast forwarded through this movie and it was still painful.
