    While Deception might have been contrived and improbable at best, it was also both remarkably beautiful and fascinatingly ugly simultaniously. Both Jackman and McGregor deliver dynamic performances that refuse to be ignored. And who really gives a crap if it delivers too few plot twists?

    The movie might not be believable but and uninteresting at parts but overall it was good.McGregor and Jackman's acting performances were stunning and the characters were well made.But, the movie had some plot holes that had some major repercussions at the end.Overall, a good movie.Nothing more, nothing less.

    This vision of Gotham is as fastidious as the cockpit of a BMW. But rather than sell luxury sedans, Deception offers a fantasy even big money can't buy -- Wall Street as a cross between a James Bond adventure and a Victoria’s Secret spread.
  2. With her arresting, off-kilter look of bruised desire, Michelle Williams ends up being the most interesting aspect of this somber corn.
  3. Why Hugh Jackman was so excited by Mark Bomback's script to star and produce the film is as big a mystery as why such talents-on-a-roll as Ewan McGregor and Michelle Williams joined the cast.
