Focus Movie Review: The Dumbfounded Professional Fraudster

Jess is a con artist who seems to have chosen the wrong target as a victim of her scam. Thinking of being able to outsmart a guy as cool as Nicky at a party, he had to learn more in doing his actions because apparently, Nicky is a professional in that profession. Enchanted by Nicky's skills, Jess begs to become Nicky's student.

Nicky introduces Jess to his criminal group. Having successfully learned the tricks of pickpocketing and cheating from Nicky, Jess is even more amazed by Nicky that makes her fall in love. But just like the initial agreement, the two of them will only have a relationship as co-workers and nothing more. Although in the end Nicky also fell in love with Jess.

Not wanting to violate his code of ethics, Nicky then dumps Jess after a major stunt that has earned him millions of dollars in profit. Jess also felt very angry at Nicky because she did not think that the relationship between the two was only a strategic plan for massive fraud. Nicky continues to share Jess's work and then the two separate. However, Nicky regretted having abandoned Jess just like that.

Three years later, Nicky is back in action in Buenos Aires. Nicky is designing a dangerous scam involving two racing car teams. Nicky feels his design has been perfect but everything works out because he is reunited with Jess, having been with someone who was the target of his scam. Then what plan B should Nicky do?


Full of twist, building predictions from surprises

From the start of the movie trailer that was given, Focus has given the audience a strong sense of curiosity. Especially if the main character in this film is a quality action actor like Will Smith, of course, there is no need to doubt. But just a reminder, if you think this is an action genre film, of course, you are wrong.

Many twists in the film make the audience always make predictions and keep guessing. Every minute, this film will test your intelligence to continue to build predictive patterns for the next storyline, but the following scenes immediately overturn the predictions you made from the start. Very unpredictable.

What is quite unexpected, the story that can be drawn from this crime-themed film is a romance drama in it. Margot Robbie, who plays Jess, spreads high sensuality as another attraction of this film. Not many descriptions can be taken from this only five-letter film title. It's just that, this film does ask for your concentration to be able to focus on enjoying every surprise that is given.

Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa also provided dynamic comedy elements in this crime drama film. This can be seen by including the iconic character Farhad (Adrian Martinez) as a supporting role. You can say that Nicky's scam and his gang are a combination of films like Ocean Twelve, The Italian Job, Bad Boy, and so on.

The main conflict part of the film only starts to emerge after the film is halfway through, and its romance. Until the final settlement, the main enemy in the film does not appear, especially if there is no need to justify the actions of the con artists' group. Focus is more about conveying a game complex and a strategy match between criminals.

One of the criteria for a good film, apart from the acting of the actors in it, of course, is also an unpredictable storyline. If you are worried about getting spoilers from any source for this film, it doesn't feel like it will represent the surprise that is presented in the film. Focus starts airing tomorrow, February 27, 2015, in your favorite cinemas.
