These modern smooth criminal movies are all about the art of the con, not brute force. Watch as some of the slickest gangsters around use charm, stealth, and technology to get away with the big score. Check out 'Gritty Heist' smart-genre for a darker take!
All is not as it seems in these magician-based thrillers, think less bunny rabbits coming out of hats and more women getting sawed in half; and make sure to check out "The Illusionist" and "Now You See Me" if you haven't already!
As the old saying goes 'you can't con an honest John', it doesn't appear our protagonists are encountering too many of those in these butter-smooth con flicks, including 'Catch Me If You Can', 'The Wolf of Wall Street', and 'American Hustle'.
Sick of people saying “I’m the Captain Now” and not understanding the reference? Get caught up with “Captain Phillips.” It’s based on a true story, which makes it all the more thrilling. Also based on true stories from 2013? World War Z, Gravity, and Star Trek Into Darkness. The world sure has become exciting.
