Formulaic

It's a movie about a hustle in Vegas so expect the usual cliche scenes, such as group slow motion walking through a casino, an ocean's 11 style soundtrack, etc. These glitzy flicks can always entertain for sure, but the characters just left me cold, I just didn't care what happened to them. I couldn't even name one of them by the time the credits rolled! I felt like I'd watched a really really long trailer. So it passed the time but very lazy film-making

Neither smart nor original

Nothing exceptional about this movie which portrays apparently exceptional people. We have seen it all before and for the moral, well it’s the usual “get rich or die trying” with the education background serving as excuses.

I trade and teach individuals to trade the markets for a living, "20 yrs" now....And the hardest thing individuals cannot get there head round is (Keeping cool)...Controlling there (Emotions)....Not been (Greedy) Treating it as a (Business)

Wonderful film for the individual with the "RIGHT" mindset.

So so. Pretty formulaic

Full disclosure: I gave up halfway. It started ok but soon fell into the expected, spend-all-the-money-you-are-supposed-to-be-saving-and-live -the-high-life-while-it-lasts scenario. Just like any other heist Hollywood movie. Only worst.

Whilst the story is relatively straightforward, overall, the film was reasonably entertaining. Worth a watch...

Dollar-earning potboiler.
Verified purchase
Supposedly based on a factual book. Generic off-the-shelf script with no room for Kevin Spacey to do what he's good at but he walked away with a good wedge anyway, no doubt.
Co-starring, the young couple were dire. At 2 hours plus, too long with too much padding. I bet the love interest wasn't in the factual book. This was supposed to be a story about card-sharping, not young love.

Looked promising but failed to live up to the write ups. The dialogue was poor and the lead lacked charisma; stuck with it for an hour and then gave up...
