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.

A good movie

To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. First of all, for Rupert Wyatt, this movie was such a weird career move. I mean, back in 2011, he had managed to relaunch the Planet of the Apes franchise with 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' which had been a big commercial and critical success. However, he dec... read more

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)

I mean, back in 2011, he had managed to relaunch the Planet of the Apes franchise with 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' which had been a big commercial and critical success. However, he declined to direct the next installment because, apparently, he felt he didn't have enough time to reach the release date. Instead, he decided to direct this rather obscure remake of another obscure movie from the 70's which would be eventually released also in 2014, the exact same year 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' came out... Anyway, after all, this movie didn't get much love when it was relea” read more

A Wahlberg Gamble



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.” read 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.
