    the book was prob better than the movie. i havent read the book but the movie was mediocre. the director was good, but i think there were some parts that were making the movie feel slow i think. he said that he usually does wedding movies, and i thought that was pretty evident. but i think his experience there paid off here. the cast did well and i think this movie is worth a look. i would give this movie 3/5.

    Movie looks terrible. Kate Bosworth is a horrendous actress. Kevin Spacey might be the only redeeming factor, but I doubt it.

    We got to see a screening of it on Wednesday. I liked the movie, thought it was entertaining. I really liked the parts in the Casino and at Vegas, those were pretty exciting. I would recommend it for sure.

    Well the Asians are going to be celebrating if it's a shitty movie since they're pretty bitter about the main character not being Asian (as he was in real life)

    Yea, there is an Asian member on the team and he plays and important role, but the main character is white. All of the cast members did a real nice job though, great acting I thought.

    I'm going to see a screening of it tomorrow. I will probably like it because I tend to like gambling movies.

    One of the best gambling movies ever is "The Gambler" with James Caan. That movie is gold!

    Liked the story, but I agree in that from the trailer it looked pretty horrible. I guess it's one I'll wait till it hits the DVD rack.

    I thought it was decent. I hate how they had to throw in the typical hollywood BS with the love interest and payback.

    I havent read the book but you can tell they changed the story. The way it played out was too Hollywood to have happened in real life.

    I thought it was a very entertaining movie though.
