No Grand Finale

Two for the Money had all the excitement and suspense of a Fourth of July fireworks event lacking a grand finale. The suspenseful buildup left little more than a fizzle by the film's end, leaving as always another happy Hollywood ending. Al Pacino is Al Pacino at his best, but Matthew McConaughey's character transition from Brandon Lang to John Anthony and back is pure talent. The film will engage... read more

Si bien tiene una buena línea argumental que sostiene un final acorde -el personaje de Al Pacino se lleva los laureles-, esta película no termina de convencerme. Tiene huecos por dónde se la mire.
Tal vez porque yo no esté pasando un buen momento, supongo que lo que más me impactó es cómo cada uno se lanza a su propia condena inconscientemente, se autodestruye.

A good movie

Matthew McConaughey is nowadays famous for his generic and rather boring romantic-comedies but I think it's too bad since he is actually not half bad as everyone thinks. For example, this movie must be his most underrated one. Indeed, it deals with gambling, a fascinating subject, if you ask me, and McConaughey was perfectly cast. In the mentor part, you have Al Pacino who, as usual, delivers effo... read more

A good movie

“Matthew McConaughey is nowadays famous for his generic and rather boring romantic-comedies but I think it's too bad since he is actually not half bad as everyone thinks. For example, this movie must be his most underrated one. Indeed, it deals with gambling, a fascinating subject, if you ask me, and McConaughey was perfectly cast. In the mentor part, you have Al Pacino who, as usual, delivers effortlessly one of his completely entertaining perfromances (When I think about it, it must be his last movie I really enjoyed). Furthermore, I must admit that the story was nothing really mindblowing and rather predictable but I still think it was absolutely entertaining and I think it gives a good idea about how exciting, thrilling but also addictive and just plain dangerous gambling can be.

"Watched: 16.4 -------------- Niin keskinkertainen leffa kun vain voi olla. Asioihin ei syvennytä vaan tarinaa kerrotaan nopeaan tahtiin. Pacino pelastaa leffan, kun McCounaughey ei saa roolistaan mitään irti."
