Jonathan Messer is a financial auditor with hardly a life. Day in day out he works for his company, doing audits in big corporations who rather like seeing him go than come.
That changes, however, when one day he meets the charismatic lawyer Wyatt Bose who takes him along for a drink. The two become friends and when one day Jonathan and Wyatt accidentally change phones a whole new world opens up for him. Wyatt is member of an anonymous sex network filled with powerful and sexy women who every so often want to “get it off” without further complications. Wyatt is on a business trip but tells Jonathan to enjoy it fully and as such he does.
Until Jonathan meets S. that is. Once he meets up with her, he believes there’s a real spark between the two of them and starts falling in love. But then it becomes clear that Wyatt isn’t who he said to be and that there’s more going on than Jonathan thought…
Sound and Vision:
The image quality is very good with plenty of detail, easy to follow pictures, sharp images and no compression errors or grain. It’s almost like watching out of the window with your own eyes
The soundtrack does its work nicely but without too many special effects it can’t really shine. Still, dialogues are crystal clear and the subwoofer and surround channels do their work whenever necessary and with plenty of detail.
– Deleted Scenes
– Club Sexy
– Exposing Deception
– Alternative Ending
The usual standard extras but nothing more.
Deception is a craftly made thriller with everything necessary to keep the viewer interested: a good cast, solid storyline and nice plot twists.
From the beginning on you know something is wrong but the plot slowly unwindles until the very ending with several twists in the middle, exactly what a good thriller needs. The only thing we could say in a somewhat negative way is that to make this one stand out of the crowd it’s a bit too “crafted” meaning that there’s nothing special about it. But on the other hand we don’t mind a craftly made thriller these days when we get overwhelmed with movies that can’t even manage to tell their story decently.
As conclusion I would say this one is definitely well made, has everything a thriller needs and only misses a bit of punch to make it a classic. But we’re already happy with having nothing truly negative to say about it.
