Focus Summary

A veteran grifter takes a young, attractive woman under his wing, but things get complicated when they become romantically involved.

Sophie Gilbert

If it's so easy to guess what women want, why is this movie so utterly devoid of any of it?

Richard Brody

That sound you hear is the high-fives in the writers' room, and that, unfortunately, is where the filmmakers' focus remains.

Wesley Morris

[For Smith,] Focus isn't a full return to brilliance but a welcome stop, hopefully, on the way there.

Lisa Kennedy

It's a shiny, diverting ride. (And right about now, that's OK.)

Mara Reinstein

Perhaps the film's greatest trick is the one that happens offscreen: Hours after the end credits roll, it will completely disappear from your mind.
