  • With so many high standing peers (both contemporary and classic), it just doesn't have the muscle or the nous to make an impression. show more

  • The scenario isn't entirely plausible, but the actors are engaging and you can't beat the running time. show more

  • If you can't count on a British con movie to deliver at least a few moments of entertaining color, well, then what can you count on? Director Richard Janes' slight and wobbly Fakers comes close to shattering one's faith in a just and orderly universe. show more
