When the younger of two notorious sibling con artists announces a plan to go legit, his brother implores him to carry out one last swindle in the eagerly anticipated sophomore feature from Brick writer/director Rian Johnson. Tired of a life on the run, a confidence man who has dedicated his life to the art of the grift decides to call it quits. Despite his plans to leave his criminal past behind, however, the reluctant scammer finds that his brother has masterminded one last scheme to claim the wealth of an eccentric millionaire (Rachel Weisz). With the opportunity to make enough money so that he would be able to live comfortably even if his legitimate endeavors fail, the heretofore unrepentant con man finds it increasingly difficult to refuse his sibling's potentially profitable endeavor.

Of course I am biased because i love Adrien Brody (Bloom) but surprisingly enough, it's the other brother; Stephen (Mark Ruffalo) that made this movie different and special. Its beginning is much like a throwback to the short lived "Pushing Dasies" with its simple yet artful narration. The movie is hilarious but also greatly moving. It starts out as a bit of a joke but as the plot thickens near the end of the movie you realize that it's one of those stories that acctually means something. So laugh cry and be amazed! It's love, friends, and especailly family that make life worth living. Although, all of the cons along the way sure make it memorable.
This out-of-the-box conman film is terribly fun. I loved every minute of the movie, however be sure to pay attention throughout because small passings details lead to be facts of major importance later in the movie. I highly recommend it to people of tastes! This movie will make you laugh; it may even make you cry...it is a movie you will want to enjoy again and again!
