Smooth talking men stealing old womens moneyBy jamster321 from Surrey , 20 Feb 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]A stylish con-man film, using the same recipe as Matchstick Men and Oceans 12. It relies on the final twist for the films aftertaste, and the rest of the film will seem a lot more interesting after it is revealed.
Although, the first time through it is still entertaining, and has moments that make you feel you could become a con-man. Excellent for a rainy weekend or if you crave smooth talking men stealing old womens money.

4 out of 5 for entertainmentBy a customer from Bournemouth , 05 Feb 2006Great, entertaining film, you know what's going to happen but you can't quite believe it until the end.
Its boringBy a customer from Birmingham , 27 Jan 2006got bored with this especially with the bad language
Criminal - watch it!By a customer from Poole, Dorset , 26 Jan 2006The only reason I rented this DVD was because my sister loves Diego Luna and I wasn't go to watch it but decided to give it a chance and I'm glad I did! I really enjoyed it despite my reservations. It reminded me of Ocean's 11 & 12 and when I saw the credits it was co-produced by George Clooney so I guess that's why! Its well worth a viewing and see if you can guess what the twist at the end is going to be! I certainly didn't see it coming!
Not badBy a customer from Scotland , 17 Jan 2006Fairly typical 'sting' type of movie. Nice twist at the end. Spoiled by unnecessary bad language.
Film Cons ViewersBy Joe Fogg from Wallasey , 02 Jan 2006Within 5 minutes of the start of this film you ask yourself why would that kid team up with that small time Charlie? Then you watching the remainder of the film, bored with the 'mono' characters - always in 'grifter' mode. But you stay with it just to say smugly at the end 'I told you so' .
Watch paint dry -same monotonous predictability.
