A tightly focused vehicle for Damon’s charm and swagger.
This film is incredibly focused. There is not one throw-away line or one extra frame in the entire movie. From the first establishing shot to the final line, the production team plays it tight and aggressive. I couldn’t help but think of “The Hustler” as I watched, and Damon more than survives this comparison to a young Paul Newman. His swagger and charm and the even, controlled truthfulness of his performance all serve to place him solidly in the game with any of Hollywood’s best. Highly recommended.
Who would have thought a film about Poker would be so good?
There is a lot of good stuff in this film. You have a great story, an excellent cast, excellent directing, and a couple great games of poker.
When I first heard about this film, I was a bit skeptical. It’s a game about poker, how exciting can it be? The fact that Edward Norton was in the film was the prime reason I wanted to see “Rounders”. After seeing the film, I couldn’t believe how much I liked it. The film flows very well from start to finish and you can’t wait to see what happens in the next scene. Also, the film is filled with interesting, well-written characters.
As I mentioned above, the cast is fantastic. You have Matt Damon, Edward Norton, John Malkovich, John Turturro, Gretchen Mol, Famke Janssen, Martin Landau and some small roles by Melina Kanakaredes (of “Providence”) and Goran Visnjic (of “ER”). Matt Damon is quite a good actor and this is just another great film to add to his list of already impressive roles. Edward Norton is fantastic as “Worm”, he plays a truly unlikeable person, but at the same time you respect him for taking the fall for his friends. John Tuturro is excellent, as always, he has such a cool style about him. John Malkovich is superb in his portrayal of Teddy KGB. And the rest of the cast does a great job as well in their respective roles.
If you are a poker fan, then I recommend you see this film, hopefully you’ll enjoy it. I myself am not a huge fan of poker, but I do play the occasional game and I loved this film. I loved the characters, the dialogue, the acting, EVERYTHING. I truly hope you enjoy the film. Thanks for reading,
