I usually enjoy Mark Wahlberg movies so when I saw this was coming out I knew I would be checking it out. I had no idea this was a remake however. This was directed by the guy who did Rise of the Planet of the Apes which I think is interesting since Mark Wahlberg was the star of the previous remake of Planet of the Apes. The music and the atmosphere of the movie actually kind of feels like it take... read more

This talks the talk, but is darn too talkative (much too much talk), and its main character is not clearly defined. Definitely not the film I expected, nor the performances Mark Wahlberg is known for.

Wahlberg leads a cast far more interesting than he in the ever-frustrating battling life of a 'gambler', although he would suggest otherwise. At least this role as a teacher is much more successful than the one he attempts in 'The Happening', perhaps his quintessential bad film.
View all The Gambler reviews
Description: Jim Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael K. Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring (Alvin Ing) and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother (Jessica Lange) in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett's future. As his relationship with a student (Brie La ... (more)

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- May 2015 (40 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 41min. First Viewing The cast is very strong, though Larson is completely underutilized, and there's a strong soundtrack here, but The Gambler seems completely risk-averse, sticking to gambler/addiction movie basics. Even worse, the film seems to think that it's more important than it actually is; the dialogue is usually too writerly and the musical cues (while strong independent of the scene) are chosen for heightened effect.
