5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, February 8, 2009
This review is from: Deception (DVD)
You know the drill. Don't trust strangers. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is (too good to be true). There's no such thing as love at first sight. Money rules. Love conquers all.

Mix all of these maxims together and you get this film. Add first-rate acting by the entire cast and you get solid entertainment.

Ewan McGregor plays Jonathan McQuarry, a painfully shy auditor who works major corporate accounts. Wyatt Bose (Hugh Jackman) meets the super lonely auditor and quickly becomes his best (only?) friend. Bose gives McQuarry access to a sex club that seems to be, well, too good to be true. Michelle Williams is the enigmatic "S" who captures the shy man's heart. Everything goes just smashingly until the other shoe drops. And, of course, other shoes always drop.

I don't want to give anything away. The suspense starts early on and continues until the final frame. Others have attacked this film for being too cliched or formulaic. There's something to this criticism, but I found the acting and direction more than powerful enough to earn five stars.
