Set in the 1930's this intricate comedy caper deals with an ambitious small time crook (Robert Redford) and a veteran con man (Paul Newman) who seeks revenge on the vicious crime lord (Robert Shaw) who murdered one of their gang. How this group of charlatans puts "the sting" on their enemy makes for the greatest double-crosses in movie history, complete with an amazing surprise finish.
A great film, not a con!

Although it's a little old, The Sting is an excellent film. It's well written, the acting is perfect and the attention to detail with costumes and sets is second to none. Add to that a ripping yarn with a fantastic twist right at the end, and you have a well produced, thoroughly enjoyable film. If you enjoyed Hustle on the TV, you'll love this!
