Movie Info

A harmless game among friends escalates into a dangerous game of wits against a master criminal in writer/director William Phillips' taut sophomore thriller. For seven years, Kevin (Ryan Reynolds), Samantha (Kristin Booth), and Rob (Joris Jarsky) have mastered the homespun game Foolproof, in which they plan -- but never actually execute -- a series of elaborate, high-tech heists. When ruthless British gangster Leo arrives in town to case an upcoming diamond heist, his suspicions of the three harmless role-players soon lead him to believe he has some competition. Stealing their plans for the heist and pulling off the crime without a hitch, Leo subsequently threatens to implicate the trio with the crime lest they pull off an exceptionally tricky heist for him. As the three friends fall prey to the seasoned criminal and police soon begin to catch their scent, Kevin, Samantha, and Rob must use all of their resources to make it out of the daring heist alive.

    Foolproof has a lot going against it in that it's both Canadian and Ryan Reynolds has a lead role. Recipe for disaster, right? Not so much in this case. It has enough charm and enough interesting twists to make this worth a watch.

    This is a solid heist film. Stars Ryan Reynolds, Kristin Booth, Joris Jarsky and David Suchet. Three friends as a hobby try to make a foolproof plan to rob a bank. But when a local criminal learns of them he blackmails them to help pull off a heist. They must use their wits to get out of this crime before they are killed or sent to jail. The film has a solid story and the acting is also solid. Some laughs in this with also some fun scenes when it comes to robbing the vault. If you enjoy a good heist film then give this a watch.

    I wasn't really expecting much from this movie. I don't even remember it going to theaters! But after watching it, i gotta say it's somewhat of a diamond in the rough. an unknown that had a nice bite to it! And BOY the twists in the movie were quite unexpected and surprisingly refreshing! If you're on the fence on whether to watch it or not, i would totally recommend watching it. Ryan isn't throwing his witty comments left, right, and centre, though. Granted, he DOES have his comedic moments in the movie, but not as many as you expect from him. I wouldn't consider this a buyer, but i DO recommend watching it to decide for yourself...
