Not the greatest, but still worth watching

I don't understand where all the negative comments are coming from! We go to at least two movies every week, so we have seen what's out there and would say so if it was bad. We both enjoyed it. This was an entertaining movie.... not the best I've seen, but still entertaining. I enjoyed both Affleck and Timberlake in it, the plot was interesting and it had a good ending. For you out there that have doubts or live in a city where ticket prices are ridiculous, wait for it to come out on pay-per-view. Otherwise, not bad!

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.

If you are a Timberlake or Affleck film, you will like, not love the movie. Timberlake and Affleck are both believable in their roles. However the movie left me wanting more. It fell flat about 10 minutes into it and never picked up. When it got to the end of the movie, which I hadn't realized it was really the end, I was thinking this is it, here's where the twist will come in. NOPE. Walked out feeling more should have been done with the plot.

Is there anything J.T. doesn't do well ?

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.
