SPOILER FREE SWEETIE!!
Firstly if the screen chemistry between Will Smith and Margot Robbie is as forced as it is here in Suicide Squad we are in for a letdown. I just watched Focus and that is exactly what I struggled to do…FOCUS!
I normally am not one to complain about Mr. Smith but I forgave him for After Earth and had hoped he would be back on form. My hopes were dashed within the first 10 minutes of this movie which you would have thought Will Smith could play with his eyes closed, and furthermore he might as well have. He doesn’t have the twinkle in his eyes and if I didn’t know better I’d say he was bored as this overlong version of Hustle played out.
Smith’s character as a con artist hustler isn’t anything we haven’t seen before and I could have put up with that if the story was not arse numbingly boring and the 2 leads at least tried to have a spark. I don’t have a massive concern about their chemistry in Suicide Squad as that is all round a much different beast and I hope the producers and director have pumped the whole squad to bounce of each other somehow.
However this movie isn’t by no means a disaster, it’s just that it didn’t offer up anything we hadn’t seen before and I’d much rather have watched Adrian Lester and Robert Vaughn recruit new members on the big screen before embarking on a brand new series of Hustle with new faces.
I’d give the movie 4 out of 10 for the fact Margot Robbie is so dam hot!!!!View Movie Quotes
