Poised with sharklike self-assurance, Marla Grayson is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It's a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover, Fran, use with brutal efficiency on their latest "cherry," Jennifer Peterson - a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster, Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play - one that's neither fair, nor square.

Marla Grayson: [narrating] Look at you. Sitting there. You think you're good people. You're not good people. Trust me, there's no such think as good people.
Marla Grayson: I used to be like you. Thinking that working hard and playing fair would lead to success, and happiness. It doesn't. Playing fair is a joke invented by rich people to keep the rest of us poor. And I've been poor. It doesn't agree with me. Cuz there's two types of people in the world: the people who take, and those gettin' took. Predators and ...

Fantastic concept but very poor storyline towards end
20 March 2021 | by jayeshdave78See all my reviews

I was glued to the movie for the first 1h20m. Didn't realise it had been that ,one I was watching this amazing movie till that point. Then the next 25 odd mins. were the worst storyline I've ever witnessed-completely messed up the movie in a huge way-assassins unable to do their job while some con artist and her lover are suddenly amazing action heroes dealing with villains in disdain--pathetic-twist at end doesn't help recover the really bad 25 mins before the end.
