I don't know if there was a topic on this already even though I think there was, I could care less.

Bad ass movie.  I loved it.

Really?

I honestly don't know how a movie about blackjack could be anything but crap.

Maybe I need to see this...

I heard it was a lot about the card-counting, and basically how it all works. Sounds really interesting to me, I'd probably dig it.

Why would it suck? Rounders was about poker, and that was a great movie.

Wow, I hadn't heard about this movie. The trailer does look good. And it's based on a true story too.

I like to see Jason Statham in decent roles. He seems talented, but he's in some awful, awful movies, like Crank.

Seriosuly though, it got fantastic reviews with the critics and is definately the best movie out there right now.

This sounds like the makings of "The book was far better than the movie" type deal.

Seriously good movie.  Flopped at the box office but it was well done.

Probably one of the best examples of Hollywood portraying something with reasonable accuracy.

I enjoyed it.  I went into the movie with a basic background of the story and I think that made it more interesting.

Same. I don't know if someone who has never read about the MIT Blackjack team or counting cards would enjoy the movie as much.

Truth, how card counting came about is pretty impressive, along with things like this story. Back before vegas became a disneyland version of itself.
