One of the relatively under-the-radar flicks of April is Deception, a sexy, intriguing thriller that features the acting talents of Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor. McGregor plays an accountant who is introduced to a mysterious sex club by a smooth talking lawyer, played by Jackman, only to get caught up in the disappearance of one of the female club members and a multi-million dollar heist. The film also stars Michelle Williams and Maggie Q, who both appear to spice things up a bit. Take a look at the trailer below.
I’m actually pretty interested in this film. Hugh Jackman is a very good actor, as is Ewan McGregor. I always seem to get myself caught up in these twisted heist thrillers, so I can see myself enjoying this film if it turns out to be at all well made. Deception marks the directorial debut of Marcel Langenegger, so I suppose we will see how things go. My hope is that it doesn’t turn into another Fracture (the one with Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling), because that was a real mess. Either way, I am interested.
