Con man meets the mob. Violent, grown-up tale.

There are maybe two scenes in the movie where I didn't think all of Burns' lesser qualities were in evidence, and as a character that appears in almost every scene to only have two where I didn't dislike him heavily, that's a bad thing.

While Confidence is packed with all the ballsy bombast of Glengarry, it lacks the heart-stopping tension.
May 16, 2003
Overplotted, overcontrived, overshot and overedited.
May 8, 2003
This is a one sweet sexy sting of a movie.
May 2, 2003
Identity is suicidally insecure.
April 30, 2003
What it shares with most of its predecessors is a sterling cast, in this instance almost entirely male, and the willingness of several talented performers to play against type, with entertainingly comic effect.

... Confidence does suffer a bit from some plot devices that haven't been original since The Sting, but it's a top-notch character study and a fun exercise in style.

Surely there is something wrong with a movie that is supposed to make you go Wow! yet instead provokes a great big Huh?
April 25, 2003
On a level with Steven Soderbergh's blah remake of Ocean's Eleven.
April 25, 2003
A feature lesson in how not to make a caper movie.
April 25, 2003
There's enough hard-boiled style here to nudge this movie into the worth-seeing category.
April 25, 2003
A very smart thriller.
April 25, 2003
Hoffman rules the movie like the King rules the crime world, by what seems like some natural birthright.

How much you're willing to give Foley and company a pass for this depends on how much you dig this genre's familiar elements.
April 25, 2003
Unlike the best cons, we can always see the con artists at work. But at least it's fun to welcome James Foley back to the game.
April 25, 2003
As pulp entertainment, Confidence is great fun and Foley's first good movie since the very different Glengarry Glen Ross.
April 25, 2003
Rarely has being bad seemed this dull.
