The success of thrillers like this one depends heavily on skillfully handled smoke and mirrors, but Deception's predictable plot turns won't really deceive anyone.

As the double-crosses come thick and fast, it's hard to retain much curiosity about or sympathy for any of the film's duplicitous protagonists.

It all culminates in one of the most audaciously terrible endings ever captured on celluloid.

When sex (and mystery) gives way to a multimillion-dollar heist (and explanations), the whole thing just gets silly. Sexy fun for a while, though.

You know what's not sexy? Sexiness. I mean the overt, in-your-face, "Aren't we all being sultry and naughty?" sort of sexiness. Which is what this entire movie is, thinking it's daring.

You'd be hard pressed to find a sex thriller as unsexy and thrill-free as Deception.
November 5, 2018
The difference between a decent thriller and Deception is that a good thriller at least tries to keep you guessing with a few twists and turns.

This atmospheric and sexy neo-noir teams Scotsman Ewan McGregor and Australian Hugh Jackman as a pair of mismatched Americans.

Um sub-Jade (e quem se lembra daquele longa dirigido por William Friedkin sabe o que ser um "sub-Jade" significa) que teria sido lançado diretamente no Cine Privê da Band caso não contasse com um elenco tão célebre.

It is about as erotic as a midweek National Express coach journey to Hitchin.

An indigestible concoction of ingredients thrown together without the benefit of any serious consideration of logic.

When you advertise an erotic thriller and then give us a comedy, that's deception in any language.
October 18, 2008
A slick, cat-and-mouse thriller that unfolds with sharply-diminishing plausibility.
October 18, 2008
The film plays like two movies in one and they are sadly somewhat in conflict with one another.
October 18, 2008
Stylishly directed and superbly acted but ultimately disappointing thriller, thanks to an over-familiar plot and some laughably bad dialogue.

This film would make a perfect commercial thriller for James Spader and Rob Lowe were it still 1994.

The all-too-obvious script weaknesses didn't spoil my fascination with the premise and where it took us. It also afforded me a whole new look at Williams.

There's not a twist in this flimsy and moth-eaten plot that isn't both contrived and transparent and not a character who hasn't been hopelessly manipulated by the needs of the narrative.

All of the lead actors involved are far above the material. If they weren't involved it probably would have premiered on Cinemax at 3a.m.
