The Con Is On


Harriet (Uma Thurman - Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction) en Peter (Tim Roth – Reservoir Dogs, The Hateful Eight), een Brits oplichterskoppel, zijn ten dode opgeschreven als ze hun gokschulden bij de meedogenloze gangster Irina (Maggie Q - Divergent, Nikita, Mission Impossible III) niet kunnen inlossen. Hun overlevingsmissie voert naar Hollywood, waar ze een juweel van onschatbare waarde willen ontfutselen aan Peters geschifte ex Jackie (Alice Eve - Star Trek Into Darkness, Men in Black 3). Zeggen dat dit niet van een leien dakje loopt, is een understatement. Er is zelfs geen leien dakje...

Liegen, stelen en bedriegen - onze emoties bespelen en de illusie in stand houden, zeg maar - is nu éénmaal waar acteurs crimineel goed in zijn en de sterrencast uit deze lichtvoetige misdaadkomedie trekt alle registers open! U herkent ook nog Parker Posey (Superman Returns), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) en Stephen Fry (Gosford Park, V for Vendetta).


  • A stylish caper with enjoyably wry, martini-soaked dialogue and a terrific comedic turn by Uma Thurman as a glamorous British scam artist.
  • Excellent cast. It's great to see Thurman in a movie star part again.
  • While the characters are all over-the-top caper archetypes, the cast seems to be having the time of their lives. Tim Roth is trying his hardest to beat Gary Oldman's nicotine poisoning in Darkest Hour by drinking ALL the martinis and straight vodkas in the world, to the point where it seems of if he doesn't have a drink in his hand. He also shatters, drops, and otherwise breaks so many glasses I would not be surprised to hear their alcohol and glassware budget was comparable to the cocaine budget in Blues Brothers. Stephen Fry is a delight as usual, and he seems to be amused by all the other characters to really give a damn about the story.
  • Thurman (Kill Bill) oozes so much glamour playing her morality-challenged character that she holds our interest in all of her scenes. Plus, Maggie Q (Divergent) makes a very relentless villain.
  • Good work from Thurman and Roth, who both do well as curiously likable terrible people.
