“Focus” is about a con-artist who takes on an apprentice, they become romantically involved, sensing things were getting too deep he breaks it off and then years later she gets in the way of a his biggest score.
I am sure the concept on paper reads well, but on the big screen this movie was lost to me. There were way too many “twists” and not enough “turns”. The ending was even weird.
There was about 25 minutes of real intrigue and then I was bored.
“Focus” was billed as a Drama/Comedy. I failed to find anything funny about the movie.
It’s been a while since Will Smith has made a movie that I liked. I guess that drought will continue.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
