Focus – Review

One of the world’s biggest movie stars has not had an easy time at the box-office of late – but it looks like Will Smith may finally be getting back on track as one of the most iconic box-office stars in movie history with his new movie Focus.

With previous flops including Seven Pounds and the blockbuster failure After Earth denting his concrete reputation slightly, Smith needed to ensure his next big-screen outing was a success – and Focus looks to have achieved exactly that.

Will Smith and Margot Robbie star in Focus (2015).

The film follows Nicky (Smith), a vastly experienced con-man from a long line of career criminals, who takes Jess (Margot Robbie), a small-time pick-pocket, under his wing during his latest con.

What Nicky doesn’t expect is how quickly he falls Jess – but in a world where you trust no-one, things become complicated when the two lovers start to question exactly who is conning who.

Written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the guys behind Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011), Focus has bound to offer a unique perspective on his illisive underground world of theft.

Focus is a stunning drama that provides twist after twist, eventually leading to a finale you don’t see coming. There’s clearly natural chemistry between the films two stars Will Smith and Margot Robbie that brings a believable and in-depth dimension to the characters.

A must see for all you Will Smith fans out there.
