Haven’t seen Focus yet? Check out Movie Gal Brittany McCarthy’s review!
Hello Divas! Movie Gal is here to help you pick your next movie date film.
Do you like to laugh? Do you like to watch chemistry between a man and a woman? Do you want to see Will Smith with his shirt off?
If most of your answers are “yes” then you should see the new film Focus, starring the Fresh Prince of Bel Air alum. So what is the movie about?
The movie is about a man named Nicky Spurgeon, played by Will, who is a professional con artist. He makes millions for stealing from millionaires and everyday people. He runs a successful con artist business and hires a new employee Jess Barrett, played by Margot Robbie, whom he falls in love with.
The movie is full of surprises, mysteries and most of all, lies. One moment you’ll think you figured out the story — and then the next scene happens where you discover you were so wrong.
So do you want to really know Movie Gal’s opinion?
This film is the type of movie you will only watch once. The humor was dry and this was not the best performance from the usually engaging Will Smith. Yes, the movie had surprises and turnarounds, but after awhile, you eventually catch on to the storyline. Silver lining: Will and Margot’s chemistry is great, they are totally believable.
So would Movie Gal approve this film? Movie Gal would have to be conned into approving this film but if you want to watch it, I won’t charge you for it.
