A true story about Frank Abagnale Jr., who, before his 19th birthday, successfully conned millions of dollars’ worth of checks as a Pan Am pilot, doctor, and legal prosecutor.
This is the sort of film that’s always on British TV on a Sunday afternoon; and I have to put it on. Then i’ll end up watching the full 2 hours plus and not regret a thing.
Steven Spielberg has crafted a stylish film here, that just breezes along. It’s so easy to watch, making it the most lovable of films. Its not particularly fast paced, but it moves from scene to scene with no struggle and such ease.
The story itself is really quite captivating. It has this caper quality, without really being a caper. Its just a plot line that is made by a like-able character. Frank Abagnale Jr is really charming and interesting to say the least.
There’s not much more I can say apart from that Di Caprio is fantastic. He is feeble at the start then turns more and more inside out as the film goes on. Tom Hanks is of course really good as well; being excellently useless. The rest of the cast is solid, Christopher Walken has some great lines, and Amy Adams is very very cute.
This film is really hard to review because honestly its just a gentle but brilliant watch. Its thrilling, funny, interesting and well acted. Its just as simple as that.
Spielberg has done well to make a breezy and sweet movie, with a great lead from Di Caprio. – 4.5/5
