I wouldn’t say that I was “all in” when I watched this film. At one point I was feeling pretty bored. Matt Damon does a pretty good job, although Edward Norton stole the show for the short amount of time he was on screen. John Malkovich also had a really good and funny cameo as the scary Russian card shark/knee cap artist. Famke Janssen was a welcome addition that I wasn’t expecting in the film, she always has a special place in my heart. This film is a really good poker movie, the problem is, my strong suit isn’t card games. I was able to follow most of it, but some terminology had me lost. It’s still pretty good, and I would recommend you see it, especially if you are into poker.
