What Schemes Are Made Of
A lot of people will see this movie for the "hot" factor of Ewan or Colin. And in fact, the acting in the beginning of the movie was kind of boring and unconvincing. However, Tom Wilkinson's appearance into the movie livened things up. I really am not fond of Hayley Atwell. Woody Allen's taste in women seems to have changed. Mia Farrow, Diane Keaton and even more obscure Janet Margolin were much classier. His female characters used to have a brain and weren't simply emotional or using their gender to get what they want out of men.
However, the story is about the brothers. And the conflict is strong. And the two main leads are capable. It was like a poor man's Match Point. It is definitely not going to be successful and definitely not going to be for everyone. But give it a shot if you like Woody Allen movies and movies that might stay with you for awhile.
