Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 06/01/2012
"[A] Depression-era caper in which the actors played con men who attempt to relieve Robert Shaw's murderous gangster of half a million bucks via horse-racing scam."
Total Film - 06/01/2012
5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] masterfully smooth grift that's built on golden-age savvy but never feels like a rose-tinted throwback."

Plot Synopsis:

This lighthearted caper tells the story of two con men who attempt to swindle a powerful racketeer in 1930s Chicago. Johnny Hooker is a young confidence man whose mentor is murdered when they run afoul of syndicate head Doyle Lonnegan. Seeking revenge as well as a career boost, Hooker joins forces with old pro Henry Gondorff. Together the two scam artists cook up a complicated gambling sting that could net them the big score they are looking for.
