Style Can Get You Killed...Unless... (by Chrysanthepop)
Foley's 'Confidence' is very much a formulaic gangster con-thriller with the usual gang, the villain, the feminine touch, the weapons and money and the twists. But it still manages to remain engaging and entertaining. It's a small film but the resources have been adequately used and it is very well executed with style and substance. The cinematography and visuals are wild and the score is energetic.The story's pretty tight and moves at a steady pace. The characters are richly defined. The dialogues are sharp, witty and funny. Edward Burns's voice-over adds to the <more>
humour. Doug Jung does a splendid job indeed in the writing department.Performances by all the actors is great. Edward Burns is brilliant as the superstitious con artist Jake. His fellow team-members Brian Van Holt and Paul Giamatti are equally good. Rachel Weisz oozes sensuality but thankfully doesn't go overboard with it and acts very well. Andy Garcia is adequate and Dustin Hoffman is a natural this guy will make one laugh out loud .'Confidence' is a slick stylish thriller that doesn't pretend to be anything else, when compared to other weaker movies like 'The Heist', 'Ocean's 11' or 'The Score'. It follows the formula of the genre but it's a smart film and has its twists that are enough to grip your attention.
Not too simple, not too intelligent. Just great. I mean... AWESOME MOVIE! I never heard of a story, more interesting, more fun and more surprisingly well done as this one... I read another comment on the movie, with a comparison of Rachel Weisz and Julia Roberts. Well, I don't know that, but let's take a closer look. If Rachel Weisz can be compared with Julia Roberts, let's pretend... that George Clooney is Edward Burns and Andy Garcia is Dustin Hoffman... Now, I don't want to abuse any of the actors in Ocean's Eleven is worthless, because I really admire these people and <more>
I don't forget the fact, that Andy Garcia plays an important good role in "Confidence" too, but compared to "Ocean's Eleven", "Confidence"... ROCKS HARD!!! Let's just say that. Some critics will try to make an important note "Wait a minute, what about the flaws in the movie?" What about them? Every movie's got plenty. And this movie has a few. Nothing is perfect. If you ask me, I would give this film a 7.5! It's not shallow, but not deep too. The perfect way to relax... That's from me, I don't give a **** sorry for the rude expression what people think about this opinion, the real thing I care about is that this is my opinion and I support it 100%... This movie is the most perfectly planned and interesting movie for me... Coulnd't know about the others and couldn't change their mind, but I suppose they probably think as well...
I am quite confident that 'Confidence' will be included in My Top 10 Films of 2003. However, there are others which do not abide by this constitution. Unfortunately, the film was a box office disappointment. Therefore, my job is to convert those who escaped 'Confidence' in the multiplexes and convince them to view it on DVD. 'Confidence' stars the personable Edward Burns as Jake Vig, a confident con artist who heads up a gang of trickery-consumed swindlers. Vig has a big job to do when he is ordered by a seasoned-veteran conman named Winston King to grift a business <more>
tycoon. Dustin Hoffman's performance as Winston was smokinnnnnnnnng! James Foley's patterned direction possessed intriguing qualities that contributes positively to the unanticipated plot. You will be consumed with numerous narrative twists. Screenplayer Doug Jung is one 'jung' player that is bound to pick up future projects screenplay projects that is . The supporting acting of the film has to be considered as one of the elite of the year. Besides Hoffman's electrifying work, we had show stopper performances by Rachel Weisz, Paul Giamatti, Andy Garcia, Luis Guzman, Tony G, and Brian Van Holt. Burns' also does strike it up in his starring role as Jake Vig. It's his 'viggest' acting performance so far in his underrated career. Eddie's consummate coolness and charismatic presence are conjuncting components which make 'Vig' the big part of 'Confidence'. Contrary to popular belief, 'Confidence' is one you should be confined to. ***** Excellent
Everyone must love a good con artist tale. We all see our selves as both victim and perpetrator. We love the thrill of the ride, of the something for nothing, of doing bad, but not really hurting anyone who does not deserve it. These are the archetypical elements of a good con movie, and Confidence delivers them with panache.There is nothing really new here. No mind bending twists beyond the twists that have to be constructed for a picture like this to succeed, and succeed it does. Why? It is the cast. Everyone delivers the performance of their career in the film, and I mean everyone. I have <more>
not seen Dustin Hoffman act in a long time, and here he does much more than phone in the part. He proves himself to be a real risk taker. Nothing less can be said of any of the cast members, some familiar, others not so. This may be the defining role of Edward Burns' career, and likewise for Rachel Weisz. I did not even recognize Andy Garcia, that is how transformed we has. Imagine Paul Giamatti in a role that you did not want to slap him for or ask why he was wasting his talents!This film is like a really rich dessert. Even though you know it is not good for you, you just cannot help yourself because it is so delicious.
An impressively edgy, inventive con thriller (by davideo-2)
STAR RATING: ***** The Works **** Just Misses the Mark *** That Little Bit In Between ** Lagging Behind * The Pits Conman Jake Vig Edward Burns and his gang of crooks have just pulled off a major scam. The only trouble is, they've conned money that was owed to big time protection racketeer 'The King' Dustin Hoffman and he, of course, wants it back. But he's impressed with Jake and gives him time to make up his debt. So Jake and his gang try and target a gullible looking high-flying businessman to make up the debt. But along the way, a number of factors, including a <more>
corrupt, dogged LAPD officer Andy Garcia and a sultry seductress/con artist named Lily Rachel Weisz threaten to get in their way.Using the 'reverse plotting' style of films like Reservoir Dogs before it a film I noticed it had a lot in common with and adding a few unique touches of it's own, Confidence is a slick, stylish and classy con caper with a fine script and neat performances.In one of his most notable leading roles, Ed Burns pulls it off with charisma and class. It looked like Hoffman would ham it up as the main bad guy, but he managed to be really restrained here and manage the role with just the right tone. Speaking of restrained, Garcia, also in a supporting role, manages to bring it down a notch or two compared to his usual intense theatrics. The rest Weisz, Morris Chestnut manage to be noteworthy well, Chestnut actually does really well too. This is a thoroughly rewarding experience and well worth seeing. ****
I avoided this movie for while, i looked at the cover and put it back, looked again, put it back. Months passed and for some reason i just took a chance and bought it. I have to say i'm glad that i did.Basically its a slick thriller about money and power, with a good cast, solid plot and enough well crafted twists to make it a little special.It isn't a masterpiece, but it is certainly worth watching, and the story is linear enough to appeal to a wide audience.8/10 If you enjoyed this you'll probably like 'SWORDFISH' and 'OCEANS 11' both have a similar feel.
Standard Con film with snappy editing (by shavlor)
Confidence like most con movies is story driven. Of course there are the twists that make you think ahead as well as think behind. But what really separates this movie from the other con movies is the snapping editing. The scenes flow into each other and are full of sound and motion. The movie is only 97 minutes and it keeps the audience engaged through-out. The story is nothing special but is believable due to some solid acting from the leads. The supporting cast is good for the most part. Dustin Hoffman is particularly entertaining not great in this movie.I would recommend this movie to <more>
anyone who likes con films and modern fast paced crime flicks.
If you think you can guess what this movies about, guess again. (by Stefan2damax)
At first it may seem like it's done many times before, and is just following the footsteps of other popular films like Oceans eleven, but you will find that the more you watch it, the more you're drawn in, and before you know it you are in an exciting world with imaginitive characters and a plot line like a roller coaster, it twists and turns, and you never know whats going to happen next.Go and see Confidence, whether you like it or not, it will always stay in your mind, because it is definitley something new....
