This movie was great!.... when I saw it 4 years ago, as a Canadian-made film called 'The Last Casino'.


That's Hollywood for ya - no more original ideas left. They had to steal all Canadian actors, now they're stealing our movies too. And some IMDB reviews are calling it 'fresh and original'. *sigh*

It's always very disappointing when a film that has potential for greatness throws all that potential out the window, and that is precisely what happens in 21, a film that could've been nail-biting and intense, perhaps even a successful coming-of-age tale, and ends up not working as any of those things. You want a good movie that deals with this topic, features interesting characters, and actually... read more

I just love the material. It always find it interesting when a movie focus on smart people, instead of "beautiful people". When watching this, I kept thinking about "The Social Network". Basically, I guess "The Social Network" would have looked like this movie if another less gifted director would have made it. I mean, the original story is rather fascinating but the end result is rather average. ... read more

"On parempi olla rikas ja tunnettu playboy kuin robotteja suunnitteleva, matematiikasta kiihottuva nörtti. On myös parempi käyttää terävää päätään mieluummin blackjack-korttien laskemiseen kuin Nasan rakettisuunnitteluun, koska eihän rehellisesti nyt ikinä tienaa mitään. Onneksi Kevin Spacey on taustalla järjen äänenä ahneena matikanopettajana ja houkuttelee opiskelijoitaan huijaamaan yhä suuremmilla panoksilla. Laurence Fishburne on läski kovanaama, joka vähän kovistelee "

"I believe counting cards is probability and statistics. Because I watched this in Probability & Statistics. I don't know. Math bores me. Hence frequent list-making and movie-watching. "
