Movie Info

Nicky (Will Smith), a veteran con artist, takes a novice named Jess (Margot Robbie) under his wing. While Nicky teaches Jess the tricks of the trade, the pair become romantically involved; but, when Jess gets uncomfortably close, Nicky ends their relationship. Three years later, Nicky is in Buenos Aires working a very dangerous scheme when Jess -- now an accomplished femme fatale -- unexpectedly shows up. Her appearance throws Nicky for a loop at a time when he cannot afford to be off his game.

    Will Smith and Margot Robbie do more than enough to keep your attention throughout focus, but it doesn't help an overall underwhelming movie.

    Very interesting. Good story and plot. The ending is kind of meh, but either way, this is a cool film.

    fun and easy to watch but it really isn't grand in any sense. Will Smith should really dial the charisma down and try an indie film. I haven't seen him stretch and this film required someone with a little more depth. The ending was okay but nothing really special.
