When the younger of two notorious sibling con artists announces a plan to go legit, his brother implores him to carry out one last swindle in the eagerly anticipated sophomore feature from Brick writer/director Rian Johnson. Tired of a life on the run, a confidence man who has dedicated his life to the art of the grift decides to call it quits. Despite his plans to leave his criminal past behind, however, the reluctant scammer finds that his brother has masterminded one last scheme to claim the wealth of an eccentric millionaire (Rachel Weisz). With the opportunity to make enough money so that he would be able to live comfortably even if his legitimate endeavors fail, the heretofore unrepentant con man finds it increasingly difficult to refuse his sibling's potentially profitable endeavor.

A solid, yet mis represented movie by Geek_Warfare - September 22, 2010
The trailers to this film will guide you to believe this is a Heist movie, when in fact it is more or less a light drama.

The film revolves around two con men brothers played by mark ruffalo and adrian brody and a new target Rachel Weisz.

The back bone of this movie is the love between the two brothers and what happens when bloom(brody) wants to stop being part of the "game" and start living his own life.

Surprisingly the best two parts of this movie was 1.)Rachel Weisz as a neurotic mess who throws a ratchet in the entire heist, and in the relationship between the two brothers.

2.) Bang Bang the mysterious Asian woman who works with the brothers on heist occasionally.

All and all it's a very solid well crafted sweet funny drama about friendship,family and letting go.

If you liked everything is illuminated you will definitely like this. The same humor and sweet yet sad undertones go through
