FOCUS | © 2015 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro, Adrian Martinez, Gerald McRaney, Brennan Brown, BD Wong Writers: Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Directors: Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: February 27, 2015 FOCUS begins in a way that primes us to expect one sort of movie, only to deliver another. Given that bait and switch and general con artistry is the business of its protagonist Nicky (Will Smith), this isn’t inappropriate, but it’s still somewhere between a little disconcerting and really disappointing, depending on how much one values certain elements.
