    Taut, tense and enthralling, as smart and surprising as it protagonist.
  2. So sharp and dryly urbane in its mod-Brit take on the noir, noir, noir, noir world of gambling, dames, and pulp fiction, it makes higher-profile attempts like ''Rounders'' look blah, blah, blah, blah.

    It's brilliantly precise in its detailing, stylishly jagged and sensual by turns, and utterly unpredictable.
  4. There may not be much meat in Hodges' stew, but the sauce was so tasty I felt satisfied after the light meal.
  5. Croupier, immersed in a world of gambling, gamesmanship and crime, is a solid, seductive entertainment.

    (Owen's) existential angst and the interesting layers of character and setting give Croupier a sharp, engaging edge.

Clive Owen is great in the lead role and proves that voice over can work very well (hard to imagine the film without it). The film is somewhere between a thriller and a drama. It is very low-key and very different from British crime/gangster films. Croupier watches more like a mystery, keeping the viewer in wonder as to how it is going to turn out. Overall, the film is very well put together and a solid recommendation. Expand
