I do like a good gambling film and i look forward to watching this one. A lot of these films are very disappointing and i hope that this one isnt. Rounders is still the number one gambling film in my opinion

Doesn't this film description sound rather similar to the film The Hustler?Most of the time when you see poker represented in films or TV you quickly realise that the director has never played poker and it soon gets disappointing so lets hope this one is better.

Gambling movie with Ryan Reynolds? Awesome! Can't wait for it. The actor is good, and the film story will be good, I think. Sorry for bad English.

Yeah let us hope that the film will be a good one, but what I am happy about is the simple fact, that they produce a new Gambling movie at all. I mean, there are not that many out there, so a new one is better than nothing, even if it is not top stuff.

So, he is not teaming up with somebody to find the leaks in his game - he is just making an attempt to 'change his luck'. Sounds about right. Yup, luck is the 'it' factor when it's come to poker. Nothing but luck.
Luck, be my lady tonight.

There hasn't really been a great poker movie since they made Rounders. One of my all time favourite movies and a reason I play the game of poker. Ryan Reynolds is a pretty good actor so my hopes are high we could end up with another great movie when all is said and done.

Nice news. Looking forward to it. The story sounds quite good. I like these stories especially when it is not only a film about poker and gambling just because it is quite trendy nowadays but have a real and interesting story with famous actors acting in them.
