Nothing special with the script, action, acting and story line.
Been done to many times by to many people.
It wont be so bad as a rental but not worth the price of going to the theatre.

Yes it's true this is no Oscar worthy film but it is a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half. I at least didn't walk out feeling I wasted my money . Justin T. Acted his ***off ! Well done J.T. Ben Affleck did a credible job but as another reviewer put it, he hardly broke a sweat. But it wasn't his acting, it was the part he had that was the problem if there was one. There just wasn't an awful lot to work with. All in all though it was an entertaining movie, and let's face it, we all have to pay our bills.

While things started off a tad slow, things quickly changed. This was very well done. Ben Affleck was fanastic. No doubt his best role ever. Justin Timberlake is a natural! This is a very good movie and the fact that it is based on a true story makes it all the more fasinating.

This movie had a great cast but ultimately the story took too long to develop. They did a great job of mixing in action and comedy but there were a lot of plot holes created in the process. Realizing it's a movie, if you want to look over these, it's an interesting (somewhat unrealistic) view into the world of online gambling. Personally, I'd wait until this one came to Redbox/Netflix though.

Excellent movie. Held our attention all the way through. Both actors, Justin Timberlake,
Ben Affleck were convincing. The story was compelling and to wait for the end and see how Justin gets out of the trouble he is in was very intriging. The story is well written and the viewer gets knowledge of how gambling/cons can go as high as it does in this move. Well done.
