Jake Vig (Burns) and his team (Giamatti, Van Holt, Chesnut) are professional grifters ready to pull off the next new job, this time to con bank owner Morgan Price (Forster) to get the money back that they owe to ruthless crime lord "The King" (Hoffman). To mix it up, they add the smoldering Lilly (Weisz) to use as bait, and "The King" requests they use one of his men (G.). For the most part, the plans seem to pan out well, but when one of the members of the crew gets a little bit too greedy, things get a little bit more messy. And in the meantime, a crooked cop (Garcia) is planning to hunt down Vig in an act of revenge. "Confidence" may not be one of the most creative grifter films out there, and heck, it might not even be close to one of the best, but despite all of this I enjoyed most of it. Like most of these kinds of thrillers, it tries to be unique by using quick cut cinematography, a trendy score, and some neat plot devices, and while it succeeds in most of those areas (and creates excellent entertainment value I might add), by the time you finish watching it you'll forget most of it by the next day. But still, that doesn't mean this isn't still a fun movie to watch. The script and the acting together create oddball characters and some witty banter, and is pulled off well by the cast. While this film may not have the excitement of similar movies like 2003's "The Italian Job", or the quirky heist action of 2001's "Ocean's Eleven", I still liked most of my stay. And Hoffman is a standout as the strange crime boss, and Weisz is better than most of the cast as the brutal femme fatale. "Confidence" might not be terrific, but it's well-made and entertaining. And that's all you should have to look for in a crime caper like this.
