Time Out says

Theatre director Mosher is a longstanding collaborator of David Mamet; and presumably that made him a natural choice for this sting movie, written by former telesales op William Wheeler, which resembles Glengarry Glen Ross crossed with The Spanish Prisoner. Vaughn is well cast as the gifted spieler who warily enlists in what he knows deep down must be a scam, selling shares in a goldmine at the behest of legendary con-man Kelly Grant (Harris). None of this is quite as sharp as it might be, but Mosher has a feel for the seedy milieu of these moneygrubbers, and it ends on just the right note of sour self-disgust.
