Nicky Spurgeon is an extremely accomplished con man who takes an amateur con artist, Jess, under his wing. Nicky and Jess become romantically involved, and with Nicky's profession of being a liar and a cheater for a living, he realizes that deception and love are things that don't go together. They split, only to see each other three years later... And things get messy. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

FOCUS is written and directed by Gleen Ficarra and John Requa and Produced by Denise Di Novi. I had wanted to see this film since seeing the trailers way back. I felt this was a very entertaining film filled with this incredible air of sensuality and sexuality due to the chemistry brought by Will Smith and Margot Robbie. To my memory there hasn’t been recently a couple that has fired up the screen like that in awhile. Outside of that the story was rather tight getting to see the underside of a con mans life was interesting, but very glossy and shiny making it look almost glamorous. That is cool, yet I would have loved to seen something a little more gritty, true to life. Overall I felt FOCUS was entertaining so I give it 3 stars.
