It's a silly, flippy little take on the heist genre that is lacks the usually predictability that comes with the genre but retains many of the same old tropes. The acting in pretty decent, a little wooden at times maybe but never bad enough to take you out of it, and it moves along at a good pace. If you're a fan of heist/con-man films and don't mind some silly, slightly sappy but exceedingly modern romance thrown in give it a look.
I guarantee worst case scenario you're only mildly entertained.
I enjoyed Rachel Weisz in this, as I do in most movies she appears in, but overall, there was something lacking. It was quirky and had moments of humour and interest, but just didn't hold my full interest or leave me wanting more.
This was an odd but enjoyable little movie. Great cast.
I read the reviews before watching the movies which may have influenced me. However, I'd have to say I endured 10 minutes of it before I could endure no more. Really bad!!!!
Was awful.....didn't watch it all. So bad !!!
Strange little movie - but held our interest. Found the older brother a pain in the bum and very frustrating to watch.
A bit too quirky for me. I didn't enjoy it at all.
this is a really good movie. so much to enjoy on several levels. The visual humour in the background, the great banter. The cons are great, albeit a bit clunky sometimes. But the acting is first class all the way.watch it, Pay attention and your in for a treat.
Copy jumped about 5 times (faulty DVD).
Jumped right at the end and missed the ending between the two brothers :(
Not happy Jan :(
we found this a very strange movie, had great trouble making any sence of it, very dissapointed , expected better
Had a lot of potential but this quirky little film is enjoyable but not great.
A bit strange but also a few funny parts - different role for Rachel W.
Like the Lovely Bones I watched it through to the end just to see what would happen even though it wasn't all that good. The ending was stupid and predictable although the story along the way was at times mildly interesting so I gave this one two stars. Don't rush out to see this one.
Great plot, well executed.
Pow, bam, yahoo and ha, ha, ha - a watchable and funny movie.
Not the brightest star in heist galaxy
i have heard this movie improves after about 40mins ....we didn't wait this long.
A strange, strange movie....A bit of a bore
It's hard to decide what is real and what is a con, but then that's the whole idea of the movie. A bit slow in parts, funny in others.
Quite an enjoyable movie,but didn't feel much empathy with the characters. Rather a weak script too.
Very, very different - a bit "odd" and very quirky. I actually laughed out loud in many places. I agree with Margaret F that there was a touch of Tarantino to it the style reminded me of Kill Bill in some ways). Very funny and I loved it!
this was some wacky fun. this was really funny and remined me of 60/70's con films it had all the style over the place. just a fun film. the acting was great and just fun.
This movie is to cinema what Mills & Boon is to literature. There is a very good reason why you failed to notice it playing at your local cinema which is, in itself, a testament to the collective good taste of the Australian movie-going public. Read a book or watch the telly instead.
As a 'con' 'set up type of movie, it doesn't play to the usual script. perservere with the unusual and enjoy the bizarre! Bang Bang is brilliant!! I thought it was comical in parts and quite the take on the regular scripts out there. I loved it. My 16 yr old son even sat through it and enjoyed the story , finding it quite sad with the ending.
Excellent movie, I enjoyed it.
Good acting by the actors.
It did have some oddities, but I would recommend this one.
What a weird movie, quality acting by Ruffalo & Brody but the script was disjointed and hard to follow. It involved two brothers that have been coning people since childhood, there was so much deceit & intrigue we got LOST in the plot. We only found out what really happened once we watched the deleted scenes & special bonuses. Bit to clever for us hence the 2 rating
Good movie a bit like something Taratino would make , quirky , tricky . Con or not a con?
Quite a few laughs, good acting, but weird!
