Storyline
Twenty-something Torontonians and friends Kevin, Sam and Rob play a game they call Foolproof: they plan foolproof heists, but without the intention of actually carrying them out. They have a few rules in the game, including the three having the necessary technical and physical abilities to carry out the tasks required for the heist, the plan cannot include loaded guns, and there is no violence meaning that no one gets hurt. They try to be as meticulous if not more so than the best high stakes thieves. The fun is in knowing they could do it if they truly wanted. Their collective lives change when someone breaks into Sam's apartment and steals their latest plan for a jewelry warehouse heist. After the warehouse is hit, the culprit identifies himself to them as Leo 'The Touch' Gillette, a known but never convicted high stakes thief who will stop at nothing to get what he wants…

Don't worry, I skipped the more personal entries. I'm a thief, not a scoundrel.



User Review

Definitely Deserving Another Look

Rating:

Finally, a heist movie that doesn't have any noticeable plot holes,
intriguing concept, and for Canadian viewers, doesn't attempt to hide a
major Canadian city as somewhere in America.

Normally, I'm put off by action movies because of the plot holes and
repetitiveness of so many of them. So "Foolproof" came as a pleasant treat-
there is a MAJOR twist in the plot that you will just have to watch for
yourself.

Watching "Foolproof" was like reading a nice mystery novel on a winter
afternoon, (as it happens, I saw this movie on a snowy
afternoon!)

If this is the future of Canadian film, more please!
