Will Smith leads this "rom-con" crime caper, from the directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love, as a master of misdirection who becomes romantically entangled with his new disciple (The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie).

As she learns the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and Nicky breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame - now an accomplished femme fatale - shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes race car circuit. In the midst of Nicky’s latest scheme, she throws his plans for a loop and the consummate con man off his game.

Recent con flicks have proven a little lacklustre, particularly those with romantic subplots attached. It’s as if Hollywood has forgotten to make what was once a reliable subgenre, the rom-con simply hasn’t aged well, the correct ingredients haven’t been present, or a little of all the above.

If the perfect con is about diverting one’s focus, then this one keeps you distracted till the end.

Robbie is the genuine article – sharing playful chemistry with Smith, but ultimately stealing the movie from right under his nose.

The hotels and high-end clubs in Focus are extraordinarily furnished, and Smith and Robbie look splendid gallivanting among them.

Smith and Robbie have great chemistry together, and neither of them try too hard to complicate their fun, sexy partnership.

The Hollywood stakes for Smith are as high as they are for the con man he plays. As it stands, "Focus" just might be a game changer.

Plays more like an inventory of thieving and gambling techniques than a captivating diversion...

Like one of the neon-coloured cocktails Smith drinks in it, it’s more of an immediate rush than something you’ll remember in a year.
