Product Overview

When professional grifter Jake Vig (Edward Burns) chooses the wrong mark in The King (Dustin Hoffman), he is given two choices: pull off a near impossible heist or lose his life. Needing all the help he can get, Jake brings in beautiful con artist Lily (Rachel Weisz) and a mixed group of "professionals." Nonetheless, with The King riding him and a pesky Special Agent (Andy Garcia) on his tail, Jake and his team look to have the odds stacked against them.System Requirements:Running Time: 97 MinutesFormat: DVD MOVIE

ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review Most of Confidence is told in flashback. This allows protagonist Jake Vig (Edward Burns) to narrate his tale (and he never seems to stop talking... blah, blah, blah). Jake's tone is self-deprecating. He knows that the con man relies upon three things: human nature, planning, and luck...Confidence has a high enough entertainment quotient that it's possible to overlook a great many flaws. This brash production doesn't expect a lot more from its audience than undivided attention. It plays by the genre's rules and toys with the viewer's expectations, but it never does anything truly unexpected or amazing. For those who enjoy movies about heists, cons, and double-crosses, this will satisfy.

Review Confidence is a flawless exercise about con games, and that is precisely its failing: It is an exercise. It fails to make us care, even a little, about the characters and what happens to them. There is nothing at stake. The screenplay gives away the game by having the entire story narrated in flashback by the hero, who treats it not as an adventure but as a series of devious deceptions which he can patiently explain to the man holding a gun on him--and to us. At the end, we can see how smart he is and how everybody was fooled, but we don't care.

Quotes
David Rooney, Variety ...compelling crime caper full of smoothly navigated plot twists.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Scenes with Burns crackle with the toxic energy that makes Confidence a game worth playing.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post ...Burns's best film since "Saving Private Ryan."
