Pleasantly Surprised

I rented this video on a whim as I enjoy heist flicks, but went in expecting really grade B material. I ended up thoroughly enjoying this film! Ryan Reynolds and the cast were funny without overdoing it and worked well together. The film wasn't burdened with cheesy dialogue, hokey special effects and the such. Throughout it maintained a smart approach toward keeping the characters in the forefront. Yes, the heist sequences were detailed and decent in their own right and is on par with that of Entrapment but maybe even better: cool to watch without it being way, way over the top. But we never lose sight of the three central characters. It's finding these small niche gems that make watching films an adventure.

A hidden gem

Slick, witty, snappy, tight, and fun. Bright, endearing leads. David Suchet is really good as someone who really isn't very nice. The heists (and camera/editing), while not exactly Mission Impossible, are innovative and exciting, and although you always know what's going to happen it's a fun ride getting there. Foolproof doesn't have the same star-quality you might find in some bigger releases, but the film looks crisp and colourful with good (eg. believable, unobtrusive) special effects, and there are plenty of films - and big-name directors - who could learn a thing or two about getting sparky performances, and a pacy, neat little caper.

Great Unknown Action Movie

Kevin (Ryan Teynolds), Sam (Kristin Booth) and Rob (Joris Jarsky) are best friends and they develop plans of foolproof heists as a game since the times of the university, but without having the intention of executing it. After developing a complex robbery of a jewelery, their plans are stolen. Sooner, the mobster Leo Gillette (David Suchet), who has stolen the jewelery following the plan developed by the group, blackmails them with the following proposition: they have to steal US$ 20,000,000.00 in bonds from a bank, and he returns the stolen project of heist to them. Otherwise, he will deliver their plans with their fingerprint to the police. Kev, Sam and Rob decide to join the gang, afraid of going to the jail. "Foolproof" is a surprisingly good action movie. The story, full of plot points and betrayals, is engaging and recalls movies like "The Italian Job", "The Sting", or "Confidence", among others. The nice cast and the excellent David Suchet have great performances in the role of a team with a weird hobby, and an amoral mobster. The music score is also great and fits perfectly to the action scenes. I really recommend this unknown movie as a great entertainment. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "Jogo de Risco" ("Game of Risk")
