Will Smith may have suffered a setback with After Earth, but his latest flick, Focus, has all the makings off a box office hit. Besides co-starring with Margot Robbie, he is not the savior of mankind, not some super soldier, and not yet a DC Comics anti-hero; but he is a professional con man! Will is “Nicky” a con whose latest scheme is thrown for a loop when a woman from his past, “Jess,” is now a noted femme fatale, returns to his life and throws a wrench in his plans. He will need every trick in his book to pull of his latest heist and keep her at bay.
The film looks amazing! Might I add again Margot Robbie is in the film! She is an amazing actress. The chemistry between these two is intoxicating. The cat and mouse game between a con man and femme fatale has to be anything but boring! Perhaps we are getting a peek into the dynamics of Suicide Squad, the upcoming DC Comics film where they portray the anti-hero/super villains, Deadshot and Harley Quinn, respectively. Either way you are in for a real treat. The timing of this movie is perfect as it signals the end of the romance/romantic comedy movie season (Sayonara Fifty Shades of Grey!) and the beginning of “Movie March Madness” as I like to call it, as winter goes out Spring comes in with an array of amazing films sure to capture your attention. Focus by far will be the best! Be sure you grab your tickets today!
