Highly Suspect Reviews: ‘Focus’

1 Submitted by on Thu, 26 February 2015, 16:01

Will Smith and Margot Robbie are out to steal a lot of money, and perhaps each other’s hearts, in this new romantic heist flick from the writers/directors of Crazy, Stupid Love. It certainly is the long con being pulled here as Focus feels like two separate movies crammed into one.

Brian and J.C. sit down for this Highly Suspect Review, and are joined by Chris and Diva who didn’t see the movie but, come on, a job like this requires more than a two-man crew. Would the film make off with Brian and/or J.C.’s affections? Or would this be another cinematic crime befitting the early-year dumping ground?

The Unusual Suspects are just the right scoundrels to help you make that call!
