  1. Nothing in the movie rings true, least of all its depiction of gambling, both in casinos and in the bookie world that ultimately drives the story.

    Overlong and overstuffed with cliches -- the movie doesn't seem to realize how close it comes to comedy.
  3. A scare movie about gambling addiction, is as grim and lurid as any in the recent spate of films about the evils of crystal meth.
  4. 25
    A high-profile cast can't save this multi-narrative drama about gambling addiction from its wildly uneven tone, which veers from high melodrama to hard-boiled pastiche so overwrought that it's unintentionally funny.

    Cant believe the low ratings for this film. This was a great movie, right down to the twist at the end. Highly recommended

    Can't understand the critics. This was not a bad movie and the acting was believable.
