The Sting is quite the set-up
5 second plot: A small con-man's partner gets murdered after they hustle the wrong people. He wants revenge, but to do that he has to team up with a big con-man. And avoid getting caught by the mobsters, the police and the FBI.
5 second review: If often thought to myself: 'am I supposed to believe that...'. That's never a good sign. And holy shit: this kid's got 99 problems, doesn't he? But he still has time for a love interest. Well, that turned out to be a problem as well. The sets are great, but it's a shame you can see that the background is painted. This is a classic, no doubt about that, but I had some trouble going with the flow.
