Rental fodder - Deception review by Jawbreaker

Spoiler Alert
28/09/2008

With Ewan and Hugh onboard you'd be expecting more from this average thriller, that really lacks of all things thrills!

Ewan performs his accounting duties well enough, having been in the financial sector in previous films. Jackman is a convincing brash lawyer who seems to have everything Ewan's character lacks. So this strange friendship develops in ways you'd never expect.

There is plenty of style onscreen but the characters never develop to any extent. As I originally suggested a thriller without thrills is fundamentally flawed. Deception indeed.

BLAND - Deception review by Rachael

Spoiler Alert

Apart from Jackman and McGregor, who give an average performance, this is a dire film. It is a non-thrilling thriller with a "twist" you see coming so obviously it might as well be wearing a hi-vis jacket.

In a nutshell - if DVD's and movie nights are a treat - don't bother. However, if your going to watch it as an alternative to eastenders, go ahead - its mildly more exiting.
