This is an American crime story based on a true story. It spins around a swindler who successfully committed crimes globally. Christopher Walken has an adorable family and lives big. However this doesn’t last. The family is thrown to shambles after Christopher is refuted some money. Leornado Dicaprio is then forced to flee his home for greener pastures. He gets himself into illegal cons to make money. He even defrauds a bank and gets away with about $ 29 million dollars. Leornado lives on proceeds of crime and is now a wanted man. The days of a thief are numbered.
The film has breathtaking parts. For instance, Dicaprio plays quite a number of roles that are laughable. It’s hilarious how he seduces the bank attendant by promising to take her out for a stake. He also never attended flight school but sure looks like a confident flight attendant. At medical school, he acts like a doctor who has promising patients a fallacy to many real doctors out there. In court, he portrays a character of a true attorney. He argues out his cases in a confident and experienced manner. A case in point is where he states that ‘the defendant is lying’ something he knows nothing about. Dicaprio plays the role of a convincing individual without no doubt. It’s weird how his friend goes after him.
Everything about this movie is incredible. It’s amazing how Leonardo is escorted to the airport by several air hostesses dressed in colorful blue apparel. Evidence produced shows that he has faked checks all over the world from South America to Australia and Singapore. This is ridiculous. Dicaprio is a sarcastic man. He calls Tom Hanks to apologize but his real intention is to find a place to live. Further it’s amazing how he reunites with his father at the diner. Lastly I can’t fail to notice his escape at the airport in a bizarre manner. Dicaprio is then set up and arrested as he attempts to return home. He is given a huge post in the FBI to investigate such crimes. At the end, he finally reformed to a normal person in the society.
