A good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, I always had a weak spot for this movie. Indeed, for once, Ridley Scott made this time an 'actor' movie which was quite refreshing. What I mean with this is that, instead of focusing on the directing and the visuals, the strength of this movie were the performances of the 3 main actors (Nicolas Cage, Sam Rockwell and Alison Lohman). By the way, it is rather sad that all these actors turned out to have a rather disappointing career in the following 10 years. Indeed, Nicolas Cage who was at the time a really interesting actor, spent most of his time showing up in some increasingly disappointing features and the guy has become pretty much a joke in the film community. Considering Alison Lohman, it is actually rather sad. Indeed, with this movie, she got her breakthrough and it seemed that she had a bright future ahead for her. However, she got married in 2009 and then pregnant and, apparently, she pretty much retired which is just too bad. For Sam Rockwell, the situation might be a little less dramatic but I think he is still incredibly underrated after all these years. Concerning the plot itself, to be honest, it was pretty obvious that a long con was going on but it was still fairly entertaining. Anyway, to conclude, even though it might not be anything really amazing, I thought it was a decent heist feature and it is definitely worth a look especially if you like the genre.ย
