A solid enough thriller held together by some somewhat implausible plot devices, Deception stars Ben Affleck as Rudy, whose cellmate Nick is lucky enough to be pen-pal to the beautiful Ashley (Charlize Theron) who in turn has pledged herself, body and soul to the man inside whom she has never set eyes upon. Upon his release, Rudy decides to pose as Nick in order to take up with this luscious and adoring female. Unfortunately, the scheme backfires on Rudy when he discovers that Ashley was apparently a pawn in her ruthless brother Monster's game to coerce him into helping him and his gang of gun-runners rob a casino that Nick used to work in. Deception rumbles along at a pretty seedy, violent pace for a long time, with Rudy's efforts to escape resulting in Monster (a menacing Gary Sinise) using him as a dartboard in one memorably brutal scene. Following their raid on the casino, however (clad in Santa outfits), the plot takes a couple of devilish twists and turns which reward the viewer prepared to come this far down the road with these people. The lack of empathy may be redeemed by some viewers with a scene featuring Charlize Theron naked in a pool. --David Stubbs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

You're definatly not in for a boring evening if you settle down with this!
The film takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of thrills, chills, laughs and kills. Ben Affleck's performance as Desmond, a down on his luck ex-dancer from Michigan is particularly compelling and makes for a captivating watch. Charlize Theron provides equally memorable moments (one particular scene including a disgustingly diluted bottle of orangeade, six baseballs and a tear in her eye), in which she portrays the sneaky but sexy New York Entomologist, with a hidden passion for euthanasia. Viewers are also blessed by a seemingly cameo from Johnny Marr (guitarist from heavy metal rock band 'The Shins'), and a rare return to the big screen from Kenneth Williams, as mean but lovable jewel-thief henchman.
I strongly recommend this film to a wide range of viewer tastes. Though it is, in basic outline, a Action Thriller, there are many subdivisions, that will leave fans of any genre satisfied.
