This Week: Focus
Okay, so the trailers didn’t lie. This movie had a fair amount of tension. However it also tended to break the tension a lot. Witty banter was the play of the day. What you are always looking for is some of the long plays that some you see coming, some you miss, and then some that just don’t exist.
Everyone does a fantastic job acting wise and it is well written enough that when they make the reveals, you can think back and see how it all built up to the long play.
There are a couple holes and an instance in the film where once it is revealed what a certain object actually was, it becomes confusing what it was supposed to be portrayed as in the misdirection.
All in all, very enjoyable.
