Hot off the heels from The in-Laws
, Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal
) & David Suchet (Agatha Christie's Poirot
) team up in another budget movie. It follows a group of friends , Kevin (Reynolds) , Sam (Kirstin Booth -This Beautiful City
) & Rob (Joris Jarsky -Survival of The Dead
) , who have a game they play called, foolproof. Where in, they plan daring heists which they could complete using they're own real life skills/abilities , and get in & out unoticed without the use of violence. But, this is all they do, plan, they dont actually carry them out.
However, upon completing a recent plan they came up with, they find out it has been stolen by someone calling himself Leo Gillette (Suchet), and that if they dont steal some items for him, using they're plan, he will turn it over to the authorities. So they have no other option than to follow through on the plan rather than face jail or worse. But when the real pressure is on, it seems self preservation kicks into effect, friendship or not.
In conclusion, the story is well done & has many twists in it. The acting is very good for a budget film, and as in , The In Laws, David Suchet gives a stand out performance once again. The best way to sum up Foolproof , is that it's basically a full length movie version of an epsiode of BBC1's t.v show Hustle
or the American version Leverage
. I found it to be very enjoyable, so if you like shows akin to Hustle/Leverage then you will really like this i think. Reccomended.
