Focus – movie review

focusGrade: C+

I’ve put off writing my review of this movie because I can’t think of anything to say. It’s one of those movies that doesn’t stand out as good or bad in any way.

The story is decent. I think they were trying to pull of an Inception-like effect, but with within cons instead of dreams within dreams. They didn’t fail miserably, but at the same time they didn’t really hit a home run either.

Will Smith was pretty much what you would expect. His character is flamboyant and confident — something Smith excels at. The rest of the cast was good, but again, no one stood out as remarkable, except for maybe Adrian Martinez “sidekick to the stars.” He did a fantastic job with a small role.

It isn’t like February through April have a lot of must see movies. You could do worse if you’re just in the mood for a night out and want to see a movie. Otherwise put this on your list of movies to see on DVD.
