No dragging moments
11 November 2018 | by geezelleSee all my reviews

There are a lot of swindling and con movies but what I like about this film is that there are no dragging love/romance scene or parts.

Just pure outwitting between the antagonist and protagonist.

Plain and simple plot but how each scene is revealed is amazing.
