Good for a TV movie!
It feels like it would be more at home on the small screen rather than cinemas, There really isn’t any suspense or tension. It tries, but never delivers. the movie’s box office explain it all: the film cost $5 million to make, grossed less than $100,000 in theatrical release!! what a disaster, But I think “deal” was not that awful neither good, Had some good scenes like the scenes which take place at the poker table are very entertaining and well made. But if you don’t like poker, you’ll find this flick boring and the plot really stupid. The storyline was so predictable, I think a child could write that story! and got Burt Reynolds a Razzie nomination for Worst Supporting Actor!! HAHAHA thats tremendous, He’s not deserving it!
Oh, It’s cringe
One of the biggest mistakes in the film was having Burt Reynolds as one of the leads. He is ancient, all you can do is stare at the mans skin and cringe with how he looks now. And for some reason Burt’s skin colour does not look and he appears to be wearing heavy makeup. When he enters into the Poker hall with all the other people he stands out like a sore thumb, it literally feels like there’s the normal poker people, and there’s the actor who shouldn’t be there.
Bret Harrison should not have been the lead actor. He not only talks weird, but he can’t act very well. He has very little depth to him and always comes across as the overly happy kid who never gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
As for the movie it’s self, the film makes it seem like anyone can play poker and anyone can win, with very little talent, because all you need to do it read people’s tells and get really good hands – all the time. What really doesn’t make any sense is that the kid, with the random amazing champion talent who was born with the ability to always win at poker… is sponsored by Burt in the film to gamble with his money. What person wouldn’t take the opportunity to gamble with someone else money and take home 50% of the profits? Who gives some one 10 grand to gamble with and agrees to split any profits 50% with no consequences if the person loses all their money? And why is poker being treated like an honourable career where you can never lose and you always win? Where is the reality in that?
The filming is low-budget and nothing in the movie is relatable. There are many plot holes and it’s an all around disappointment of a film.
