Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008This film seems to have gone almost un-noticed, not heard of it before but when I saw the cast, I thought it should be pretty good. Also known as Reindeer games on region 1. The story is that a guy released from prisoner meets his cellmates pen friend played by the beautiful Charlize Theron. She has never seen the guy she has been writing to so he decides to be him. However her violent brother turns up wanting to know all about a casino he used to work in so he can rob it! So he now has to bluff what he knows because he has never worked there. There are some good ideas in the story and plot line although it does get a bit twisted towards the end. It has a slight low budget feel to it but overall not bad for a rent but far from a classic. 6/10
action, ben is goodBy Juicypefkos (87 reviews) from Reading , 27 Feb 2008After being imprisoned for six years on a grand theft auto charge, Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) and his cellmate Nick (James Frain) are finally going to be paroled. After hearing endless stories during his incarceration of Nick's romantic correspondence to a woman named Ashley he has never met (Charlize Theron), Rudy is looking forward to returning to his family and having a fresh cup of hot chocolate. When Nick is killed during a prison riot, Rudy decides to assume Nick's identity upon release from prison and meet up with the unknown woman. Burdened with a base knowledge of Nick's Indian casino employment past, Rudy finds himself in too deep with Ashley's brother Gabriel (Gary Sinise) and is violently forced to cooperate with a casino robbery that Gabriel and his gang have been planning with Nick in mind.
DeceptionBy a customer from Westbury, Wilts , 06 Mar 2007Not a bad film, but not a brilliant one either. Reasonably good acting and a fair/good script and storyline. Thought the Ben Afflecks character might turn out to be a cop in the end thou, MAYBE HE DOES-MAYBE HE DOESN'T?? All in all good to do the ironng too.
Ok, but not greatBy Keedee (13 reviews) from Amlwch , 15 Jan 2007Certainly thrilling in parts, but definately NOT a comedy. Good viewing for Rambo Genre fans.
Damn good deceptionBy Cjm1975 (161 reviews) from Wolverhampton , 12 Mar 2006Sometimes the films you have never heard of before turn out to be the best ones and this is the case with Deception. I really enjoyed it-it was a damn good thriller. It boasts an impressive cast Ben Affleck, Gary Sinise(who is excellent as the evil gangster brother) and the sexy Charlize Theron who goes topless.
Rudy(Ben Affleck) is released from prison and he takes on the identity of his dead cell mate Nick in order to meet his deceased friend's gorgeous penpal(Charlize Theron). Little does he know what dangerous world he is getting into, as he is held hostage and forced to take part in a casino robbery. This film has several unexpected twists and I liked the ending. Definitely worth seeing!
