3/4 

A con man (Edward Burns) gets in debt with the mafia after he targets an accountant working for them for a con. He then has to deal with a shadow assigned to follow him by the mafia boss (Dustin Hoffman). The acting is nearly perfect. Especially from Burns and Hoffman. The supporting cast are also wonderful in their roles. Burns is the one that really stands out from the other characters. The director uses a lot of shadows in this movie. Every shot appears to be set up well. The only thing I'd liked to have seen is more of Andy Garcia. He doesn't appear until near the end of the movie. I would suggest that you either rent this as a first choice, or watch it on HBO (or other cable channel).

I don't remember much about it other than that I thought it was going to be as good as Confessions of a Dangerous mind. I was wrong. Burns is ok, but he shouldn't be in a leading role. Slow moving and forgettable - but still ok.

Confidence review

Jake Vig (Edward Burns) has a team of grifter's namely Gordo (Paul Giamatti) and Miles (Brian Van Holt) and Al (Louis Lombardi). He tries to get back at the person who killed one of his friends by acquiring a gorgeous talented thief in Lily (Rachel Weisz). Dustin Hoffman was superb as the King and Andy Garcia as Special Agent Gunther Butan was effective. You don't get much emotion from Burns and Giamatti is always underrated. Soundtrack was upbeat and direction clear while the screenplay somewhat entertaining. Some noteworthy quotes from Jake - "You can't trick karma." and Butan - "Temper is a sign of weakness. Temper is a sign of weakness." The movie had a few dull moments comparing a film of a similar premise such as Ocean's 11 or The Grifters. Confidence is still a good watch if...

"Confidence" by Yojimbo

A conman whose crew accidentally takes the money of a crime kingpin is forced into doing a job for him to pay back the debt. Attempting the same kind of smart, sassy and easygoing charm of the likes of the Ocean's films, Confidence is just a little too generic to really light anyone's fire. Edward Burns is rather too "made for television" to have enough charisma to carry the film, Dustin Hoffman, although a great actor in his day, at his age (and height) cannot do intimidating and easily the best character played by Andy Garcia gets nothing like enough screen time. It does have some charm and wit and is slickly directed by James Foley, but it's just a little too overly familiar and does not have enough in the way of personality or surprises to be considered for the big leagues. If it's an...
