Movie Info

An elegant con-man adept at pulling off small-time swindles gets in over his head when a simple truck job inadvertently gets his crew involved in the black market immigrant trade in this stylish caper comedy that takes it's title from a British slang term for one who earns their keep through underhand dealings. Jack Pike (Ken Scott) can grift with the best of them. A lifelong criminal who gets by with a little help from his aimless brother-in-law Goat (Dominic Monaghan) and his faithful right-hand man Steve (Nick Moran), Pike has established himself as a virtual underworld aristocrat. When he agrees to partake in what appears to be a by-the-books truck job with his alluring rival Jenny (Kate Ashfield) and ends up with two Albanian children on his hands, however, double cons turn to triple crosses in a deadly game where survival, not money, is the only true sign of success. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Spivs

All Critics (3)

  • It becomes quite grim and, although by no means perfect, uses the genre expectations to con the audience as well.

    Dec 7, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Interpretado com simpatia por Ken Stoutt, Jack é um protagonista envolvente, mas o filme à sua volta jamais se decide pelo drama, pela comédia ou pelo thriller, prejudicando-se ainda mais com um final pouco convincente.
